What we do

Role of Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is the process of improving the body’s movement and function. As a profession it aims to assess, diagnose and also treat movement disorders. These may be chronic or acute but the aim is always a full return to function.

Physiotherapy can help with recovery from an injury, reducing pain and stiffness and also to increase mobility. As experts in movement physiotherapists can identify the contributing factors to pain and injury.

Finding that niggle which if left untreated may turn into something serious. Physiotherapists are trained to assess your physical condition. Combining what they see and feel to accurately diagnose an injury and then explain what it means to you. Once they know what the problem they can go about treating it the most effectively way possible.

If you need an appointment you can call us now on 07 3352 5116 to see when we are available. We work alongside your GP and other health professionals as part of a team to ensure the best outcome for you!
