Physiotherapy

 

Physiotherapy

For your muscle or skeletal pain, injury or illness, go to a reputable physiotherapist who can examine, diagnose and treat your impairment.

Our mhealth Physiotherapists combine manual therapy techniques with appropriate exercise therapy, including Clinical Pilates, to ensure your pain, postural weaknesses and dysfunctions are well addressed to reduce their recurrence.

ABOUT PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy utilises specific and specialised techniques that assist in restoring the body to its pre-injured state. Physiotherapy treatment can also ensure that the body is performing at an optimal level to ensure postural weaknesses or muscular imbalances do not occur, which may then lead to pain and injury. This will also directly affect sporting and lifestyle performance.

Your Physiotherapist specifically targets the neuro-musculoskeletal systems of the body. This is ideal as, for instance, pain and injury affecting our muscles and skeleton, can leads us to develop poor neurological patterns and compensating behaviors. This can lead to further injury or re-injury. mhealth Physiotherapy and Pilates assesses the body as a whole.
