Physiotherapy uses proven techniques to help restore movement and function to anyone affected by an injury, disability or health condition. It's a therapy that can help you achieve movement for life! A physio will use their in-depth knowledge of how the body works, combined with hands-on clinical skills, to assess, diagnose and treat your symptoms. Physiotherapy can help you avoid surgery, reduce your medication, manage your pain and reduce the risk of injury. Physios are highly qualified and can help you with a range of conditions and symptoms, including chronic conditions such as arthritis. Compared with many other treatments, a physio is cost-effective. Electrotherapy uses electrical signals to interfere with the transmission of neural pain signals into the brain. It effectively slows down or distracts the message from the nerve to the brain. Electrotherapy is a very useful resource where conventional medicines are not as affective. Electrotherapy can also involve the use of this electric current to speed tissue healing where tissue damage has also occurred. The two different forms of therapy are, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) and Interferential therapy. A registered physiotherapist may treat a wide array of conditions. Orthopedic cases (this includes sports injuries, fractures, spinal pain and headaches to name a few) are the most common types of patients treated in a clinical setting. Clinical Physiotherapy treatment may involve therapeutic exercises to improve strength and endurance. It will help in correcting postural and muscle imbalance, joint mobilization, manipulation and soft tissue massage and in reducing stiffness and to relieve pain.
