PHYSIOTHERAPY

 

What is Physiotherapy?

A treatment technique, addressing the musculoskeletal systems of the body. When we get an injury or pain disorder, our body is in a state of imbalance and measures must be taken to restore that balance. Your physiotherapist will use a variety of hands-on techniques and exercise therapy to get you back to normal and in your optimal condition.

Your physiotherapist is skilled in a number of areas from soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, stretching, strengthening, postural alignment, dry needling, core stability and exercise prescription.
We also have Bradcliff Certified physiotherapists for breathing disorders, breathing pattern assessment and re-education, inspiratory muscle training for athletes, chronic respiratory illness, and a variety of health conditions.

 

If you have had an injury to joints or muscles, your physiotherapist will be assisting in your recovery.

Receiving physiotherapy will speed up your return back to normal by:

• Massaging tissues to assist their healing capability and mobilising.

• Stretching and mobilizing joints so that they are at their optimal functioning level.

• Helping you to retrain postural muscles that may be weakened and hindering your recovery.

• Helping you to retrain movement patterns that may be dysfunctional.
