What is Physiotherapy?
The medical field of physiotherapy helps people improve, maintain, and maximise their strength, function, mobility, and general well-being. The phrases “physiotherapy” and “physical therapy,” as well as “physiotherapist” and “physical therapist,” are interchangeable and refer to the same thing.
In order to assess, identify, and treat the symptoms of sickness, injury, and disability, physiotherapists have a thorough understanding of how the body functions as well as specialised hands-on clinical skills. In addition to injury prevention and fitness enhancement, physiotherapy also focuses on rehabilitation. To better satisfy a patient’s healthcare needs, physiotherapists frequently collaborate with other medical specialists in teams.

The treatment process
Manual therapy, exercise, education, and a home programme are just a few of the treatment facets that make up physiotherapy. Other modalities include laser, ultrasound, and electronic interventions. We construct individualised treatment plans that are tailored to each patient’s needs and intended to restore and maintain physical function using thorough, evidence-based treatment techniques.
