Physiotherapists are qualified professionals who are trained to assess and diagnose certain conditions, and to provide education and advice on the problem and how it can be managed. They also help develop personalised treatment plans that focus on physical activity and a range of techniques such as adapted exercises, massage and manipulation.2
Physiotherapy can help treat a wide range of conditions, including back pain, incontinence, delays in childhood development, sports injuries and neurological issues such as Parkinson’s disease. Below are five common examples:
- Back pain
- Chronic pain
- Before and after surgery
Physiotherapy may increase your quality of life by focusing on important aspects of health and well-being, so talk to your GP about a referral to one of the specialist Physiotherapists onsite here at the Coffs GP Superclinic.
