Physiotherapy is a well recognized and scientifically based healthcare profession. It treats and improves many of the orthopedic and neurological problems using nonsurgical and drug-less methods. Complaints such as physical trauma, joint aches and pain, overuse injuries, loss of normal muscle function or repetitive strains due to sporting activities, work and household tasks can be addressed. No matter whether the pain or dysfunction originated from the muscles, joints, nerves or connective tissues, physiotherapy can help alleviate pain and regain a person’s strength, mobility and function.
Treatment programs are individualized depending on the patient’s needs and the root cause(s). It could involve a combination of treatment techniques including hands-on manual therapy, trigger points release, joint mobilization and spinal manipulation. Progressive therapeutic stretching and strengthening exercise programmes will be used to help patients to get back to their sports or work as soon as possible. Physiotherapists will also offer advice on injury prevention, postural and ergonomic tips. Anyone from babies to the elderly, pregnant women and sports enthusiasts can benefit.
