As physiotherapists we talk about the muscular system and the skeletal system (bones and joints). An injury to either or both of these systems is known as a musculoskeletal injury and can be treated successfully with physiotherapy.
How we can help;
The physiotherapist will complete a thorough assessment of the area of concern and present a diagnosis. The ensuing treatment will fix the problem. Treatment may include some of the following:
- Joint mobilisations
- Muscle release techniques
- Targeted exercises
- Motion analysis
- Workplace rehabilitation
- Postural analysis and modification
This is a standard consultation which takes 30 minutes. Ensure that you wear suitable clothing so that the body part can be seen by the therapist.
