Our physiotherapists provide clinical assessment and management for all types of orthopaedic, sports, personal, work and auto injuries, as well as post-operative rehabilitation.
As a profession, physiotherapists work within a framework of empowering the individual, caregiver or community through education and the promotion of self-management of health and well being, while maintaining an appreciation for the psychological, cultural and social factors that influence their clients.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physiotherapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with physicians. Our physiotherapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it.
While every client’s condition and pain is unique, your physiotherapist will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels. The overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring.
What is ‘Sport Physiotherapy’?
Sport physiotherapy is the specialized branch of physiotherapy which deals with injuries and issues related to sports. Athletes normally require a high level of performance and demand placed upon their body, which stresses their muscles, joints and bones to the limit. This specialized knowledge in the area of sport physiotherapy enhance the integrated approach that it takes to return an athlete back to sport.
