What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses and treats to correct injuries, pains or movement disorders.


Physiotherapists are the experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders and return to normal pain free activity. 

Put simply... Physiotherapists work with you to get you moving better, more efficiently and with less pain so that you can recover from your injury quicker and prevent the problem from coming back.


The best physiotherapists will look at the bigger picture (not just massage the sore spot) to help you discover why your problems have presented and then address these root causes.
