What is Physiotherapy?


  

Physiotherapists are in the science of movement. Physiotherapists are experts in assessing, diagnosing, treating, and preventing disorders of movement. We work in partnership with our clients, assisting them in overcoming movement disorders and getting people back to their normal lives.

 

Physiotherapy can help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. Physiotherapists can also help prevent further injury through movement assessment, risk factor assessment and program planning to keep you in shape and injury free.
