What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists are healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, and chronic metabolic and neurological conditions. Physiotherapists are experts in biomechanics and function and help with recovery from injury, and reduce stiffness, pain and risk of further injury.
Physiotherapists use a wide range of education strategies, manual therapy techniques, and individually tailored exercise programs to help manage specific injuries and conditions. As first-contact practitioners, we treat a wide array of patients with multiple conditions and different complexities; plus you don’t need a referral to see a physiotherapist.
Physiotherapists are accredited by Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and have studied at university for a minimum of four years. This includes four clinical placements spread across musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiopulmonary physiotherapy domains in various different environments. Physiotherapists are required to participate in continued professional development to use evidence-based practice when providing treatment to all patients.
Physiotherapy is more than just treating musculoskeletal problems. Different areas of physiotherapy can include.
- Occupational health
- Cancer, palliative care and lymphoedema
- Chronic pain
