What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy, often referred to as physical therapy, is a healthcare profession dedicated to improving and restoring physical function. It encompasses a wide range of techniques and therapies designed to enhance mobility, alleviate pain, and promote overall well-being.

Who needs Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is beneficial for individuals of all
ages and backgrounds. It is particularly helpful
for those who:
  • Recover from Injury: Physiotherapy plays a

       crucial role in rehabilitating injuries, whether

       they are sports-related, or due to accidents.

  • Manage Chronic Conditions: People with 

       chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, or heart disease can 

       benefit from physiotherapy to improve their quality of life.      

  • Enhance Sports Performance: Athletes often turn to physiotherapy to 

       optimize their performance, prevent injuries, and recover quickly.

    •  Improve Mobility: Individuals facing mobility challenges due to aging or         medical conditions can regain independence through physiotherapy.
 

Here at Movewell, our physiotherapist uses a variety of different treatment methods to help speed up the healing process and reduce the likelihood of the same thing happening again. Some of the techniques include:

  • manual techniques (massage, joint mobilization, manipulation, stretches)

  • electrotherapy (ultrasound, interferential, TENS, laser)

  • heat and cold

  • therapeutic exercise

  • correction of posture, lifting techniques, sporting techniques which contribute to the problem

  • taping, bandaging, splinting

The physiotherapist is not only concerned with treating the injury, but with finding the cause and correcting any biomechanical factors which may contribute to the injury.
