If you have a question you can

 

Physiotherapy can assist you in your upkeep and goal to improve your well-being. Our clinic has credible, well-trained healthcare professionals that use human movement and its nuances to achieve better results in therapy, healing, and overall wellness.

The practice relies on the notion that physical movement and its mechanics are crucial to human health. It relies on a broad range of methods, from exercise regimens to structural assessment, to determine what is wrong and how to correct it.

The typical physiotherapy treatment begins with assessment and diagnosis. The therapist will want to see what is wrong, and that may involve some questions and tests. Your history will be inquired, along with some details about your lifestyle and habits.

From there, the planning and administration of a treatment program can begin.

The details of the plan will vary based on your goals. Some exercises are better suited for minimising dysfunction after injury, while others excel in recovering range of motion or improving physical function.

Physiotherapists use a range of skills to achieve their goals. These include manual therapy practices, various therapeutic exercise regimens, electrotherapy, and advice on how to make changes to diet, lifestyle, and other relevant factors.

This method stems from a holistic approach. Rather than focus solely on the affected area, physiotherapy looks at the body as a whole. Through this, they can determine connections to better effect problem areas.

Our efforts aim to put you back on your peak physical potential, with a healthier lifestyle to match.

Apart from recovery and therapy, we can also assist in other areas. Our therapists can help you in improving your balance or in correcting your posture. We also have experts that can help in rehabilitation after severe injury or invasive surgery.
