Who Is Physiotherapy For?
Physiotherapy is for anyone who wants to move better in their day-to-day life. It is suitable for people of all ages – from babies to seniors.
Physiotherapists use a range of techniques - from manual therapy, to exercises - to improve mobility and reduce pain. The treatment for each patient is specific to their needs and can be valuable for anyone dealing with pain, discomfort, or limited mobility due to injury or illness.
Because physiotherapy employs so many diverse techniques in targetted ways, it is useful in a wide range of scenarios:
- Rehabilitation and recovery of injuries, be they from sports or accidents
- Rehabilitation, recovery and minimising scar tissue after surgery
- Chronic pain relief
- As part of the treatment plan for neurological conditions, in order to gain strength, balance, and mobility
- To improve the lives of children with developmental delays or congenital disorders
- To increase the independence of elderly people through improved mobility and pain management
- To help athletes enhance their performance, recover after injury or intense exercise and prevent injuries
- For someone who suffered a work-related injury, to restore functional ability and safely return to work
- Pre- and postnatal care
- To improve lung function as part of the treatment for respiratory conditions
Whatever your context, our network of experienced physiotherapists can help you move and feel better in your body.
How It Works
- Make a booking Once you make a booking, a healthcare manager will contact you to facilitate your appointment with a licenced physiotherapist.
- Your initial assessment The first consultation will include an initial comprehensive assessment of your physical condition, medical history, lifestyle, and daily activities, followed by a diagnosis of your condition.
- Set your goals You'll set short-term and long-term goals for your recovery with your physiotherapist.
- Personalised treatment plan You'll receive a personalised home exercise program and education about your condition, future injury prevention, and overall wellness. This knowledge empowers you to participate actively in your recovery.
- Follow the plan As you follow the plan, your physiotherapist will periodically reassess your progress, adjust the treatment plan as necessary, and provide a maintenance plan to prevent recurrence once you’ve achieved your goals.
