Physiotherapists are health professionals primarily concerned with the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of spinal and musculoskeletal disorders. They utilise their knowledge of normal movement and the function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments to determine if they are performing effectively and normally.
Physiotherapy aims to restore normal and pain free function with the use of manual physical treatments including joint mobilisation, massage, electrotherapy, joint manipulation and exercises complemented by advice and education.
People who benefit from physiotherapy can range from athletes recovering from an injury, a worker rehabilitating from a back injury to the older person coping with the aging process.
Manipulative physiotherapy is the term used for special handling techniques to promote healing of soft tissue. These techniques may include myofascial release, craniosacral techniques, joint mobilisation and massage therapy to name a few.
Clinical Pilates is a special series of exercises performed in our gym to assist in core and limb strengthening, restore flexibility and improving posture. It is performed either individually or in small group classes by a qualified physiotherapist.
