Physiotherapy Treatment

What is Physiotherapy Treatment?

Physiotherapists offer exercise, manual joint therapy, soft tissue techniques education, and guidance to people afflicted by disease, injury, or disability. Physiotherapists help people of all ages improve their physical health, control their pain, and avoid illness. Physiotherapists support patients with pain management and injury rehabilitation, allowing them to continue playing sports, working, or doing everyday tasks while remaining functionally independent.

There are several different types of physiotherapy treatment options.

Acute & Sub-Acute Injury Management

  • Sub-Acute Soft Tissue Injury Treatment
  • Early Acute Injury Treatment

Hands-On Physiotherapy Techniques

Hands-on physiotherapy methods, such as massage, are part of the physiotherapist’s preparation.

  • Soft Tissue Techniques
  • Minimal Energy Techniques (METs)
  • Joint Mobilisation (gentle joint gliding techniques)
  • Physiotherapy Instrument Mobilisation (PIM)
  • Joint Manipulation
  • Physiotherapy Instrument Mobilisation (PIM)

Exercise physiologists, remedial massage therapists, osteopaths, acupuncturists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, and occupational therapists are just a few examples.

Physiotherapy Exercises

Depending on your status, your physiotherapist is highly skilled in prescribing the appropriate exercises for you. Your physiotherapist will incorporate critical elements of pilates, yoga, and exercise physiology to achieve the best possible results. They could also use Real-Time Ultrasound Physiotherapy, enabling you to see the muscles contract on a computer while retaking them correctly.

Your physiotherapist possesses good diagnostic skills to detect and ultimately avoid musculoskeletal and sports injuries. One of the most common causes of a reoccurring injury is poor technique or posture.
