So...What is physiotherapy we hear you ask?
Physiotherapy is about maximising the body’s ability to move and to function in your day to day activities and life. The ability to move is fundamental to our lives and our well-being. The body is a very complex machine with many moving parts. All systems are in some way interconnected and able to influence the way we move and how we feel. Being able to move in a coordinated, smooth, pain free manner is dependent on, not only all of the different components doing their specific tasks properly, but also doing so in the correct sequence, strength, timing etc in coordination with all other components. There are a multitude of things that can affect body movement which can lead to pain, stiffness, uncoordinated movement, loss of strength or even loss of ability to do the things that we once could do. Whether this is caused through sustaining an injury at work, sport or accident, as a result of some inflammatory or disease process, through overuse or even related to stress, or through a disorder that is present from birth, physiotherapy has proven to be an effective way to treat many of the problems affecting movement.
Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function. We have detailed knowledge of anatomy and physiology, of biomechanics, of injury and healing processes, of pain generation and perception, and of exercise prescription.
Physiotherapists use a variety of treatment techniques including manual therapy such as joint mobilisations or manipulations and
neural mobilisation techniques to reduce pain and stiffness; exercise programs to increase flexibility, strength and fitness;
massage for myofacsial release, to affect muscle tension and muscle length, to improve circulation and affect healing;
muscle re-education to improve coordination; heat, cold, electrotherapy or dry needling to relieve pain, reduce swelling and affect healing processes. You may even need some bracing or strapping to help support a joint or to take tension off some soft tissues for a short time. All of these treatments provided by our physiotherapists help to improve your movement, reduce your pain and improve your function.
Physiotherapy can only be provided by a qualified physiotherapist, someone who meets stringent university level qualification standards. In order to practice in Western Australia a physiotherapist must also be registered with APRHA, the national registration body for Health Practitioners.
By choosing a physiotherapist to assist you with your pain, movement or functional issues you are putting yourself in good hands.
