What is Physiotherapy
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.
Physiotherapy treatments are an important part of today’s everyday regime. Whether you are young, middle aged or old suffering from sports injuries or undergoing rehabilitation, physiotherapy plays an important part in rehabilitation. Whether it is rehabilitation, cardiac, post-operative rehab assistance, neck and back pain, neurological rehabilitation, osteoporosis etc, physiotherapy helps in elimination or mitigation of pain, treatment of respiratory problems, improvement of joint mobility and much more. However undergoing physiotherapy can be difficult due to time constraint or distance barrier as the patient would have to travel to the therapist or a hospital which can be inconvenient.
