What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a health care service that treats, rehabilitates and prevents movement disorders.  The aim is restoration of the highest level of functioning, minimising the constraints of the physical impairment and pain, and preventing any future recurrence of the injury. 
Physiotherapy is a first line profession, meaning that you do not need a referral from a doctor to consult a physiotherapist.  Highly trained in assessment and evaluation of the human body, the physiotherapist can often identify the source of the pain or injury.
Why see a physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are one of the only medical professions to provide conservative pain relief, relief of pain without the use of drugs and surgery. Through hands on techniques and, if necessary, the use of machines the physiotherapist can reduce inflammation, release muscle spasm and tension and restore movement to stiff joints. Physiotherapists are also trained to administer individualised exercise programmes to improve posture, strengthened weakened muscles, stretch tight structures and restore normal movement.
