What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists work with clients of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions. Whether it’s pain management and rehabilitation from an acute injury like a sprained ankle, or management of a post-operative injury, a physiotherapist can help. Physiotherapy is not limited to rehabilitation of injury and the effects of disease or disability. A physiotherapist also provides education and advice for health promotion, disease and injury prevention. Physiotherapists use specialized hands-on treatment to restore, maintain and maximize optimal function and quality of life.
Some conditions commonly treated by physiotherapists include:
- Joint pain of the knees, shoulders, ankle, spine, hands, wrists and feet
- Soft tissue injuries, including muscle strains/tendonitis/ligament sprains, plantar fasciitis, and shin splints
- Pre and post-operative rehabilitation of ligaments, tendons and joints.
- Repetitive stress injuries such as golfers elbow, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Whiplash suffered in motor vehicle accident
- Nerve impingement
- Arthritis of the limbs and spine
