What is Physiotherapy?

The diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injury and dysfunction. Extensive knowledge of anatomy, pathology and biomechanics of the human body allows highly effective treatment of a wide variety of conditions. We can also assess the un-injured population to reduce any predisposing factors to injury and to improve and optimise performance. We specialise in the assessment and diagnosis of injury and then educate our patients and often prescribe a set of exercises which facilitates the body recovering by itself, thus reducing the number of appointments required to make a full recovery.
