Why you might need? Physiotherapy
You can benefit greatly from physiotherapy throughout your life. Whether it be from an injury, managing a long-term condition such as asthma, or even preparing for childbirth.
Whilst it’s not for everyone, physiotherapy can help avoid surgery when surgery is avoidable. By helping to eliminate pain, assisting with healing and improving physical health, physiotherapy can help aid your recovery faster.
If surgery is necessary, physiotherapy can help restore function and build up strength in the muscles and surround muscles. It can also help get you back to doing your normal daily activities as well as ease swelling through increased circulation.
Physiotherapy is used to help restore movement and function after an injury or illness or affected by a disability. It is helpful for those of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Sport injuries
Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach to treatment with the patient’s involvement at the core through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their own treatment.
