Physiotherapist are one of the largest and most trusted health care providers in the world. With expertise in movement science, physiotherapy focuses on restoring, maintaining and improving patient’s mobility, function and well-being. A patient-centred, evidence-based approach is used to assess, diagnosis, treat and prevent physical injury, reduce pain and promote health and fitness.
The human body is designed to move, with over 600 muscles and 200 bones working together allowing us to achieve optimal function and well-being. When injury, pain or disability affect our movement patterns, we tend to move less, which results in decreased quality of life. Using a whole-body approach, the primary goal of a physiotherapist is to work with patients to improve movement, performance and quality of life.
Depending on the findings of the assessment, the presenting condition and patient’s input, different types of therapies can be used, including manual therapy, myofascial release techniques, exercise and movement therapy, stretching, modalities (such as TENS), massage and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF).
