Physiotherapy

What is Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal pain and injury.

Physiotherapists are University trained practitioners who use evidence-based methods to determine the best treatment for their clients.

A Physiotherapist will use a combination of manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, education and lifestyle advice, soft tissue techniques and anti-inflammatory modalities to treat conditions.

All Physiotherapists are required to complete a minimum of four years training before becoming licensed to practice and must participate in ongoing continuing education every year.

Physiotherapy can assist in a wide range of physical conditions including:

  • Neck and back pain

  • Sporting, work or general injuries
