Most people’s traditional view of physiotherapy is that it involves “hands on” treatment. In reality, this is only a small portion of what physiotherapists do to assist with injury management.
Educating you about your condition, identifying contributing factors from your lifestyle, as well as instigating a structured and tailored exercise program, are some of the most important things physiotherapists do.
In this time particularly the ability to reach out for experienced clinical reasoning in a manner that completely works around the patients time schedule is more important than ever.
Over the last 5 to 10 years, physiotherapy has moved away from a reliance on complex machines and simple manual techniques, towards rehabilitation programs carried out under guidance. This puts you in much more control of your own recovery.
If we feel you have an injury that requires “hands on” therapy, we will let you know!
