Local Physiotherapists in Carnegie
WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY:
Physiotherapy aims to treat muscular, joint and nerve disorders to ensure your musculoskeletal health is at an optimal level. Striving to restore function and mobility, physiotherapists provide long term solutions to acute and chronic conditions through proven assessment, treatment, and management techniques. Physiotherapists possess extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal conditions and relevant therapies which enables them to formulate a treatment plan tailored to your particular needs.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Physiotherapists are specialised in the musculoskeletal system, and are often recommended by GP’s due to their expertise in reducing damage, stiffness and pain caused by various conditions. An initial consultation involves a thorough assessment and informed diagnosis which considers relevant symptoms and your medical history. Your treatment options are diverse and will be discussed with you before treatment commences. Physiotherapists can develop treatment and management plans that suit your needs and will most effectively address the specific diagnosis.
Physiotherapists use a range of techniques which include but are not limited to, joint mobilisation, manipulation, muscular and myofascial release, trigger point release, massage therapy, dry needling, exercise therapy and recommended active treatments such as rebalancing exercises, clinical Pilates, orthotics, taping, hydrotherapy and electrotherapy (for example ultrasound).
