Physiotherapy Midland

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is the assessment and treatment of the musculoskeletal (muscles, ligaments and bones) system of our body in the event of pain, stiffness and/or loss of function.  Physiotherapists undertake a four year University qualification with many also continuing on to Postgraduate studies in their specific area of interest.  It has a strong scientific background and clinical research efficacy.

Physiotherapists will gain a history of your injury or condition and then perform a thorough physical examination to determine the cause of your symptoms.  Treatment is aimed at reducing pain; restoring normal movement and prevention of recurrence of the same pathology.

Treatment techniques utilised by Physiotherapists are varied and may differ from therapist to therapist.  Most techniques can be classified as either manual therapy or exercise therapy.

Manual therapy describes techniques performed by the Physiotherapist on the patient directly.  This includes joint mobilisation and manipulation; massage; and stretching.  The origin of Physiotherapy lies in the development of massage techniques and as such, we are a “hands on” profession who prides itself on it’s expert knowledge of the human body and our specialised skills.

Exercise therapy is the prescription and performance of appropriate exercises in the management and prevention of injuries.  Exercise has strong scientific research to support its role in the management of many different types of diseases and medical conditions, including chronic low back pain; diabetes; osteoporosis; arthritis; lung and heart disease.  Physiotherapists are experts in the field of exercise therapy and as such, are also important providers of medical care in sporting clubs and sporting events and many other community groups.
