Who is a Physiotherapist?
Your physiotherapist is a university-trained medical professional who uses a natural and physical approach to restore, maintain or optimise your physical and psychological well-being. This will enable you to perform and enjoy your chosen sport, work or everyday activities. In simple terms, your physiotherapist is a health mechanic for the human body.
During a physiotherapist’s university training, the study of the human body anatomy, physiology and movement biomechanics, particularly the muscle and joint system. This deep education understanding, helps your physiotherapist to not only diagnose health conditions but also to utilise hands-on techniques, educational advice and exercise prescription to resolve your problem.
Physiotherapy is a science-based methodology that is continually evolving as new research discovers better ways to treat your body. Your physiotherapist will use their extensive knowledge of the human body and highly-trained skills to help restore your aching, stiff and dysfunctional muscles and joints to health.
