WHAT METHODS ARE USED IN PHSYIOTHERAPY?
HOW WILL PHYSIOTHERAPY HELP ME?
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?
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.
