SAIT

HOW WILL PHYSIOTHERAPY HELP ME?

Physiotherapy aims to address any pain, injuries, dysfunction, mobility restrictions or strength deficits that may inhibit healthy movement or performance demands.

Our initial consultations are generally one hour long. This includes a complete orthopaedic and functional movement assessment so that your treatment can be specifically tailored to you. Depending on your individual needs, treatment may focus on pain management, rehabilitation, mobility and/or strength and conditioning.

Education and understanding your body is an integral part of healing. We believe that the key to healing lies within the client. Part of what we do is empower you through education – helping you understand your health needs and the incredible potential you hold to manage your body outside of the clinic so you can live your best life without constantly needing us!

WHAT SETS OUR PHYSIOTHERAPISTS APART FROM THE REST?

Here at SAIT, we truly value you and your health, which is why our Physiotherapists offer comprehensive one-hour treatments. This gives you the opportunity to be thoroughly assessed and treated with a high quality of care, and also gives our Physiotherapists time to explain what is going on with your body and how they will work with you to fix it. But if you have a busy schedule and don’t have an hour to spare, there are 30-minute and 45-minute appointments to choose from as well!

Our Physiotherapists also undergo constant training in sessions with our other therapists. This gives them a deeper understanding of your body – with insights from Chinese Medicine, Musculoskeletal Therapy, and more – and allows them to treat you more holistically, improving your current symptoms and treating the cause of your pain/injuries.
