Physiotherapy aims to maintain, rehabilitate and maximise strength, function, and movement in the body. Adelaide Physiotherapists have in-depth knowledge of the human physiology. They use specialised clinical skills to assess, diagnose, and treat symptoms of illness, injury, and disability.
Physiotherapists use a variety of physical treatments to alleviate pain, restore function to the musculosketal system, and improve overall quality of life. These treatments may include joint manipulation, massage, acupuncture, dry needling, and muscle stretching. Typically your physiotherapist will prescribe certain exercises to build strength to certain muscle groups in order to treat you.
Most physiotherapists work in teams with other healthcare professionals to provide a complete treatment plan. This is because the practice takes a holistic approach to your wellness. Physiotherapists also train individuals to effectively use mobility aids when necessary.
