Physiotherapy, commonly known as physical therapy, uses proven techniques and exercise to help restore function and movement after an injury. The goal of physiotherapy is to teach people how to balance, move and function safely, as those who are injured often become stiff from not moving around for a while. Physiotherapy will help people become stronger and reduce suffering.
Physiotherapy can help you avoid surgery, reduce your medication, manage your pain and reduce the risk of injury. At The Brooks Clinic, our physiotherapists will combine hands-on clinical skills with their in-depth knowledge of how the body works, to assess, diagnose and treat your symptoms.
As Physiotherapy covers a wide range of health problems, our therapists often design a customized care plan for each patient, concentrating their expertise on the particular injured area. A therapist works with each patient to understand the issues you are experiencing before a customized exercise routine is developed.
Physiotherapy is proven to be highly effective in alleviating symptoms of many different musculoskeletal and neuropathic conditions, including:
- Cervical Pain
- Lumbar Pain
- Radicular Pain Syndrome
- Occipital Neuralgia
- Peripheral Nerve Injury
- Nerve Root Injury
- Knee Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Chronic headaches
- Neuropathic pain (pain caused by injury to tissues or nerves)
- Physiotherapy tackles the physical side of inflammation, stiffness, and soreness with exercise, manipulation, and massage. It also works to help the body heal itself, by stimulating the production of the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals.
