What is Physiotherapy?
Often referred to as Physio, Physiotherapy is the process of diagnosing the origin of pain (symptoms) in a patient, and the use of a variety of techniques to reduce pain, increase range of motion (helping you move easier) and functional capacity (the ability to do more) as quickly as possible. Treatment usually focuses on trying to reduce symptoms as quickly as possible (usually pain or lack of ability to move) and then to increase the level of capacity of a patient with the usual goal of returning a patient to their pre-injury function.
At Vector Health, our Physiotherapists are all highly trained, skilled and experienced in different forms of assessment, treatment and use the science and the ability to apply this to each patient to suit their specific symptoms. We care about the WHY things happen, and we will try as best as possible to decrease symptoms as quickly as possible, but to look with you at why you experienced the injury in the first place, and what you can do to prevent it from happening again.
