Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats, and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means.
Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders, which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life-changing events.
Physiotherapy can help recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.
Physiotherapy uses manual therapies and exercise programs to treat musculoskeletal conditions & neurological conditions.
Mike, our Physio has a keen interest in Neuromuscular Therapy Technique, which is a manual therapy technique which focuses on how a person moves in their functional day-to-day activities uncovering any dysfunctions and applying manual treatment and advice to help correct and improve the individuals lifestyle.
With appropriate physical assessment, this approach can help recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. Neuromuscular Therapy technique specifically benefits chronic (long-term) issues where your body had developed unhelpful patterns in protecting previously acute issues which has then created this longer-term issue. This approach can also help current issues and also help prevent further injury from occurring. Mike uses some manual therapies, exercise programs to treat a variety of dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal & neurological systems.
