A rehabilitative profession that promotes maximal mobility and function. It is a health profession specializing in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and disability affecting movement of the body. Physiotherapy involves hands-on treatment that helps you maximize normal movement.
Physiotherapists provide assessment, treatment and education for a wide range of health problems and can recommend the best way to treat problems with muscles, bones and joints, circulatory, respiratory or nervous system. Through use of specifically designed exercises, equipment, muscle re-education and hands on management physiotherapists help patients regain or improve their physical abilities.
Anyone who feels they may benefit from physiotherapy services is able to refer themselves and an appointment will be arranged as appropriate. Your physician may also recommend you to see a physiotherapist.
