What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

We help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.

We maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

Physiotherapy helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.

What do we do?

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a 'whole person' approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient's general lifestyle.

At the core is the patient's involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.

You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical condition such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event.

Why Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapists are highly educated and skilled. We are skilled to evaluate and diagnose conditions in our scope of practice. We use our knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as:

  • Neurological (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's)
  • Neuromusculoskeletal (back pain, neck pain, whiplash associated disorder, sports injuries, arthritis)
  • Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)
  • Respiratory (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis).
  • Recovery after mayor surgery.
