Physiotherapy is the assessment, diagnosis & treatment of a wide range of conditions and injuries to the body, through the use of various forms of passive mobilization, manipulations, soft tissue massage, electrotherapy and exercises. At Physiocare, our physiotherapists are highly skilled and experienced in a comprehensive range of treatment techniques using evidence based practice which will help you overcome your pain / injury.
What We Treat
Wrist and Hand
Lower Leg / Ankle / Foot
Vertigo / Dizziness
Most patients are unsure as to the cause of their pain and what treatment they require – this is what we will tell you. With every patient, we carry out a complete assessment of the injury or problem, designed to understand the cause first and then the program of corrective treatment and preventative measures.
As a patient, whether you need a couple of sessions or an extensive rehabilitation program, our highly qualified physiotherapists will tailor a course of treatment specific to you. This will consist of a combination of hands-on treatment, electrotherapy, hydro / gym and therapeutic exercises.
We will teach you the exercise programs and pain prevention techniques which you will undertake at home / pool / gym or work designed to allow you to take control of your condition, speed up your recovery and, most importantly, prevent any re-occurrence.
We understand the implications of not getting the correct treatment for an injury and will always refer you to our network of other healthcare professionals and specialists if need be.
