Physical therapy is a patient-centered approach focusing on the manual treatment of the soft tissue - muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia. Therapists use highly skilled, hands-on techniques to diagnose, prevent or treat underlying conditions and problems. It is based on health science principles and works alongside other health care practices.
Physical therapy is founded on a tradition which recognises and values the healing properties of touch. It is proven as being very safe, non-invasive and is of course, drug free. Each treatment is individually tailored to your needs. The therapist, after carefully noting your history and completing a thorough physical examination will devise a treatment plan which may include suggesting appropriate changes to lifestyle, work practice or exercise
