What Is Physiotherapy?

Our physiotherapists are health-care professionals who offer (evidence-based) treatment which relieves pain, improves mobility and can reduce the need for prescriptive drugs or surgery. Through physical therapy, the patient participates in a recovery plan that is specifically tailored to their needs.

Mobility & Motion Improvement

Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of everyday life. Afterall, it impacts your ability to earn an income and enjoy your favourite hobbies and leisure activities. Physiotherapists are professionals specifically trained in improving motion and mobility.

Avoid Surgery and Prescription Medication

Certain diagnoses do rely on surgery and prescription medication but there is increasing evidence proving that conservative treatments like physiotherapy can be as effective for many conditions including:

Lower back pain

Meniscal tears

Knee osteoarthritis

Rotator cuff tears

Spinal stenosis

Degenerative disk disease

Be Active In Your Recovery

Our physiotherapists work collaboratively with our patients. Each treatment plan is designed for the patient’s individual goals, addressing their challenges and needs. Receiving treatment from a physio is not a passive activity and being active in your own recovery can be very empowering.
