Physiotherapists are trained to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent disease and disability. They are experts in restoring movement and function, to help you to overcome conditions that you may have been born with, or acquired through the ageing process or even as a result of an accident or injury.
Most people first come to think of physiotherapy as a way to help them overcome some sort of injury or physical ailment that may limit how well you can perform at home, work or on the sporting field. Physiotherapy can help reduce pain, stiffness and increase your mobility and stability. By listening to your needs and setting treatment outcome goals, physiotherapy is a very effective way of not only helping you overcome a problem but also helping you to prevent further injury.
What sort of treatment do physiotherapists use?
Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem, and most importantly help you understand what’s wrong. Your treatment plan will take into account your lifestyle, activities, and general health.
The following are common treatment methods physiotherapists may use:
- exercise programs to improve mobility and strengthen muscles
- joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness
- muscle re-education to improve control
- airway clearance techniques and breathing exercises
- soft tissue mobilisation (massage)
- assistance with use of aids, splints, crutches, walking sticks and wheelchairs.
