Physical Therapy - what it can do for  you

We believe physical therapy plays an important role in helping and restoring strength, endurance, movement and physical abilities to our clients whohave been affected by an injury, disability or disease.
Physical therapycan be instrumental  in aiding you to a full recovery from discomfort and pain that affects your daily life and your lifestyle. Physical therapy treatments can prevent or address a wide range of physical challenges that otherwise could be incapacitating if left untreated.

A lot of patients wait until they are incapacitated by severe pain before they seek physical therapy treatment. However physical therapy can be beneficial at the first sign of a problem and can stop a minor issue developing into a major problem which leaves you unable to carry out normal daily activities work and sport. If you are in severe pain, contact us and we will work towards an appropriate course of action.

Physical therapy can also be applied to sports injuries, recovery from surgery, recovery from injuries sustained in car accidents and other mishaps.

At your first appointment our physical therapist will carry out an in depth assessment of your symptoms to ensure that a proper treatment is chosen to get to the root of the problem quickly and efficiently. Treatment is geared towards restoring normal movement as quickly as possible - pain relieving techniques, soft tissue and joint mobilization, electro therapy, other treatments and advise you on how to get back to normal activities or your level of lifestyle as soon as possible

You will be kept informed at all times about the management and progress of your condition and we will organize further appropriate treatments.
