Physiotherapy or Physical Therapy, is a health care profession dedicated to the assessment, maintenance, and restoration of the physical function and performance of the body. We are a first contact profession so you DO NOT require a referral from you doctor to access our services. Physiotherapy is a distinct form of care which can be performed either in isolation or in combination with other types of medical management. Used in conjunction with certain medical or surgical techniques, physiotherapy can complement these modalities to help provide a speedy and complication-free return to normal activity.

OUR PHYSIOTHERAPISTS USE THE FOLLOWING TECHNIQUES:

The passive movement of a joint to restore full function and range of motion.
Ultrasound is the passing of high frequency sound waves through muscle tissues and fibres. Ultrasound is commonly used to reduce nerve irritation, improve blood flow, break up scar tissue, ease muscle spasms and increase mobility.
TAPING AND BRACING
