Why use a physiotherapist?

why use a physiotherapist

Physiotherapists are highly trained and experienced practitioners helping with all sorts of challenges from treating long-term back pain and sports injuries to arthritic pain, post-baby abdominal weakness and even headaches. That’s why GPs recommend their patients see a physio more than any other allied health profession.

How physiotherapists can help you

Physiotherapy can help you to improve your general health and wellbeing in many ways. Beyond the more commonly known treatments for sports and muscular injuries, physiotherapy can also help with diabetes, bone and joint conditions, obesity, nerve and neurological problems, cancer and other conditions.

Physiotherapists provide tailored exercise and treatment programs for all members of the community—young or old, fit or challenged. Physios can get you feeling well and functioning well!

Trained and skilled Physiotherapists can assist in many areas including the following:

Musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints)
