Benefits of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy is a proven therapy for treating various injuries and ailments. Physios work with people to maximize movement and improve function in day-to-day life.
Ailments that Physiotherapists can treat and techniques they use are as follows -

- Rehabilitation after an injury
- Tailored excercise routines
- Improving function
- Managing acute and also chronic conditions
Physiotherapy can benefit people with many different painful musculo-skeletal conditions. The aim of seeing a Physiotherapist is to return the patient to good health and to return to activities that may have become difficult or impossible due to their condition. The Physio will first assess the injury and provide a detailed analysis of where they believe the problem lies.
Once the assessment has been completed, a physio will then work with the patient on creating a tailored exercise routine that will enable the patient to perform the exercises between appointments. This means that the rehab programme does not stop once the appointment stops. Treatment with a physio can also involve manual techniques such as soft tissue work, manipulations or medical acupuncture.
