Physiotherapists are skilled in the assessment and management of a broad range of conditions that affect the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems. Here are some of the ways a physiotherapist can help:

  • Treat sports injuries and provide advice on prevention of recurrence
  • Address specific orthopaedic conditions such as back/neck pain, arthritis, repetitive strain, muscle, tendon, ligament, joint, nerve injuries
  • Provide care for children with paediatric conditions such as orthopaedic, neurological and respiratory problems
  • Get you back on your feet and back to full function after surgery
  • Maximize your mobility, strength and function if you have a neurological disorder such as stroke, spinal cord injury or Parkinson’s disease
  • Oversee rehabilitation in your home after you have been ill or injured
  • Provide pre and post-natal care and attend to other women’s health conditions
  • Treat neck and back pain and other joint injuries
  • Work with you to treat and manage respiratory and cardiac conditions
  • Treat dizziness and balance problems

Physiotherapists treat people in hospitals and clinics, neighbourhood schools, patients homes, long-term care homes, and sports medicine facilities. When an accident or illness affects your body, your physiotherapist, a university-trained medical professional can restore your health. Physiotherapists treat the whole body, and the whole person with a biomedical and biopsychosocial (holistic) approach.

With ongoing clinical research, physiotherapists continue to develop techniques to prevent and treat physical injury and disorders. Physiotherapists believe in evidence based practice, meaning treatment approaches are founded in solid research and are recommended by the greater medical community.
