restoration of the physical function and performance of the body.

these techniques to help provide a speedy return to normal activity.

understanding of the sport in which the patient participates.
How can Physiotherapy help me?
Physiotherapy can be useful in the diagnosis and management of a range of injuries, disease
processes and other conditions by identifying the problem, the causes and predisposing factors.
Identifying factors such as poor posture, improper techniques, muscle imbalance, poor work
practices or other bad habits, allow interventions to be made to correct these factors.
Injuries - physiotherapy can help you get back to work and sport more quickly by providing
rehabilitation programs. After surgery physiotherapy guides patients immediately post-operative
to full recovery.
