ABOUT PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is a four year degree course, with an added one year community service in South Africa. It is also called Physical Therapy and is a treatment approach that aims to eliminate pain and restore mobility through a systematic approach, which includes the following steps:

– Comprehensive Patient Assessment
– Diagnosis
– Appropriate Treatment Regimes
– Correcting the Cause of the Pain
– Maintenance (if needed)

Physiotherapists are medically trained and qualified to assess patients and make diagnoses. You don’t need a referral from a medical practitioner to be treated by a physiotherapist. We aim to work in a multi-disciplinary team with our fellow colleagues. We believe that communication between health care providers is vitally important.

Easy, pain-free movement is an essential component to enjoying quality of life. However, movement can often be restricted through poor posture, injury, muscular tension, inflammation or degenerative changes. The physiotherapist uses many techniques to address these restrictions.

Some of these include:

– Specific Soft Tissue Releases
– Joint Mobilisations
– Neural Mobilisations
– Electrotherapy
– Dry Needling
– Exercise Therapy
– Specific Rehabilitation
– Education
– Cranio Sacral Therapy
