About Physiotherapy #01

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy involves careful assessment of the musculoskeletal, nervous and psychological systems of the body to help establish whether physical pain and discomfort are causing dysfunction in every day life. The Physiotherapist will establish the root cause of your problems and together we will develop both a short and long term plan to help initially control and then abolish the pain.

The purpose of treatment is to restore normal levels of activity and balance within the musculoskeletal system to allow an increase in function and reduction in pain.
