What Is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy uses a variety of techniques to help your muscles and joints work to their full potential. It can help repair damage by speeding up the healing process and reducing pain and stiffness. Physiotherapists also have an important role in rehabilitation, for example, helping people who have had strokes to relearn basic movements. However, physiotherapists don’t just offer treatment; their advice can help you prevent problems from returning or even from happening in the first place.1
What types of problems can physiotherapy help?
Virtually any condition that affects your muscles, joints, or nerves can be helped by physiotherapy. Common problems include:
- Painful conditions such as arthritis
- Back and neck pain, including whiplash
- Pregnancy-related symptoms such as back pain and stress incontinence
- Upper limb work-related problems, also known as repetitive strain injury (RSI)
