What is Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy
Musculoskeletal physiotherapy focuses on all muscle and joint conditions based on a detailed and thorough assessment, skilled application of tailored techniques, advanced clinical reasoning, treatment plans and appropriate and individual exercise prescription.
Our manual techniques are non-invasive and address the presenting problems of the musculoskeletal system (including joints, discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves) that are causing your pain, stiffness and weakness. We address both acute and more chronic conditions, those from trauma, overuse or disease.
Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is ideal if you’re enduring a difficult underlying condition. Our physiotherapists apply advanced assessment practices and broader treatment techniques to restore function and move affected areas, identifying contributing factors to help in prevention as well as treatment.
Home exercises, when indicated, are also an important part of the rehabilitation process because they can greatly extend the benefits of each treatment. Our physiotherapists will advise you on a programme that’s right for you.
Our dedicated Physiotherapy Practices use predominantly hands-on therapy and specifically indicated exercises for your condition. Knowledgeable advice and education are a fundamental part of our approach to helping you get back to normal activities.
Your overall treatment and rehabilitation can also include other forms of therapy as suggested by your Physio. Dry needling, TENS, Ultrasound therapy, orthotics, taping and wax baths are just a few of the complimentary treatments used by our hands on musculoskeletal physiotherapists.
