How can Physiotherapy help?
Physiotherapy is essential in the early stages of a joint or soft tissue injury to relieve pain, improve movement and aid the healing process.
In the mid stages of an injury, Physiotherapy optimizes function and allows more activity without re-injury.
The later phase of an injury, Physiotherapy is used to retrain overall balance, regain full function and improve physical fitness. The following list contains some of the most common reasons to see a physiotherapist.
- Back and Neck Pain
- Shoulder, arm, wrist or hand problems
