Although some areas overlap, physiotherapy is very different to massage therapy or chiropractic services. And that's what makes it ideal for so many different ailments, and such a wide range of patients.
Physiotherapy uses hand-on manipulation as well as prescribed exercises to treat pain and discomfort, and improve mobility. It is particularly helpful to those suffering from musculoskeletal conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, recurrent back pain, and post-accident ailments.
It has also been shown to be of great benefit to cancer patients, those with neurological disorders, patients recovering from broken bones, even incontinence. Over many years of training, physiotherapists learn how to asses and diagnose many different conditions, and treat them appropriately.
Your physiotherapy session could include massage, joint manipulation, muscle stretching, and prescribed exercises. It's not a quick fix - but a program of treatment intended to bring long-term relief.
Some therapists use a method called Neurodynamics. In just the same way our joints and muscles need to be flexible, our nerve tissue also needs to be able to move freely. If you've ever suffered from a pinched nerve, you'll know exactly what we mean!
Neural Tension Treatment can quickly bring pain relief and restore full neural mobility. This may be used if the patient has sciatica, bulging disc, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or tennis elbow. If you suffer from something like that, you would definitely benefit from an assessment.
Physiotherapy Instrument Mobilisation is another increasingly popular method used by physiotherapists. It involves using a special spring-loaded instrument to mobilise your spine and peripheral joints.
Whatever your ailment, there is a physiotherapy treatment to suit you. So why not book an appointment now and discover for yourself how effective it is.
