A common misconception in our profession is that we only treat sports related or musculoskeletal injuries sustained following a traumatic event.
This however is just one aspect of physiotherapy. Regardless of what some people believe, physiotherapy is also a great treatment option to help alleviate or manage a diverse range of conditions or presentations:
- Neurological conditions including Strokes, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome
- Cardiovascular conditions including those who have heart disease, or those at risk, to reduce the incidence of future cardiovascular episodes
- Cardiopulmonary conditions including COPD, Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, or post Covid or Pneumonia recovery
- Pediatric conditions including Torticollis (wry neck), postural foot conditions, fractures, or gross motor skill re-learning for developmental delay
- Amputee rehabilitation.
