Physiotherapy can treat more health conditions than you could probably imagine.

A common misconception about physiotherapy is that we only treat sports related injuries or injuries sustained following a traumatic event, for example, a car accident.

This however is just one aspect of physiotherapy. Regardless of what some people believe, physiotherapy is also a great treatment option to alleviate and manage the symptoms of a diverse range of symptoms.

Physiotherapy can treat back pain, asthma, severe pain, and vertigo. Pregnant women and first-time mothers can also benefit from a string of physiotherapy when preparing their bodies for childbirth.

Physiotherapy can also be a recommended treatment for the following conditions:

  • Neurological conditions: Strokes, Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
  • Cardiovascular conditions: Heart disease and rehabilitation strategies for heart attack.
  • Cardiopulmonary conditions: COPD, Asthma and Cystic Fibrosis.
  • Paediatrics conditions.
  • Amputee rehabilitation.
