Physiotherapy plays a very important role in enabling you to recover from injury, illness or disability, by restoring the movement and function of your body. You can also practice physiotherapy regularly to protect yourself from possible injury or illness.
Physiotherapy is useful for the treatment of bones, joints or soft tissue problems, such as back pain, neck pain, or sports injuries. Physiotherapy also forms an important part of the treatment for brain or nervous system related conditions, such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis (MS).
Physiotherapy is important to recover from a heart attack, and lung problems such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. Expert physiotherapists at Medcare form part of the team with specialists from other departments, if required for a patient’s treatment. Your physiotherapist will discuss your posture, lifestyle and occupation, and advise you on changes that you need to make to stay in good health.
Your physiotherapist will also create a tailored plan for you that may include exercises, stretching and movements. Some techniques that your physiotherapist may use are mobilization, kinesio therapy, manual release, myofascial release, trigger point release with dry needling and electro analgesic treatment with modalities.
