Most people’s traditional view of Physiotherapy is that it involves “hands on” treatment. In reality, this is only a portion of what Physios do to assist with injury management. Educating you about your condition, identifying contributing factors from your lifestyle, as well as instigating a structured and tailored exercise program, are some of the most important things Physiotherapists do.
Over the last 5 to 10 years, Physiotherapy has moved away from a reliance on complex machines and manual techniques, and towards specific exercise programs carried out under guidance. This puts you in much more control of your own recovery. Research has shown that outcomes can be as good as a traditional consultation.
Naturally, if we feel you have an injury that requires “hands on” Physiotherapy, we will let you know!
