Physiotherapy is a profession which aims to produce an evidence-based approach to the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
Physiotherapy may be used in acute injuries such as joint sprains and muscle tears, chronic injuries (which last more then three months) and reocurring injuries which may flare up with an increase in work load or training.
These may include neck and shoulder pain, headaches, lower back pain, knee and ankle pain and many others.
The consultation consists of a thorough assessment and treatment.
This will include hands-on techniques, as well as advice and education on relevant exercises for rehabilitation and further injury prevention.
Techniques such as joint mobilisation/manipulation, stretching, strengthening, soft tissue release and postural education may be used.
