Physiotherapy is a 'hands on' manual therapy and one of the best proven approaches for the treatment of joints, muscles, nerves and ligaments. It uses a physical approach, to restore, promote and maintain physical, psychological and social well being.
The foundations of Physiotherapy practise are based on a comprehensive knowledge of the body's anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and pathological processes. With this combination of knowledge a Physiotherapist can evaluate pain and dysfunction to determine how best to resolve it.
With more moving parts than any other machine, it is not surprising that the body occasionally cries out in pain or refuses to do what it is told. There are hundreds of different muscles, joints, nerves and soft tissues that can be easily damaged either by stress, disease or disability. Physio Relief aims to restore movement and normal body function to ensure that harmony is returned once more.
Using a variety of techniques physiotherapy is used help muscles and joints work to their full potential. It can help repair damage by speeding up the healing process, reducing pain and stiffness and thus increasing mobility. Physiotherapists also have an important role in rehabilitation, for example, helping people who have had strokes to relearn basic movements. However, at Physio Relief our Physiotherapists don't just offer treatment, their advice can also help prevent problems returning or even happening in the first place.
Physiotherapy, like modern medicine, has constantly evolved over the last century and is now able to treat problems more successfully than ever before. Today, it is undertaken to cure almost every ailment and injuries related to the bones, muscles and joints using hands-on manipulation together with advanced technology such as ultrasound and electrotherapy.
Clinical research has proven that people who seek physiotherapy treatment early after an injury have shorter recovery periods than those who wait.
