Its regarded by doctors as one of the primary treatments for muscular skeletal condition, it comes from a long history of physical therapy modules and is concerned about the way the body functions, and using a physical therapy based approach, look to restore physical and functional balance.
Today physiotherapy has developed many approaches to the treatment. Physio’s as there commonly called will consider why the injury came about, the maintaining factors such as work practise, posture or disability, a treatment plan is then formulated.
Physiotherapist uses various physical approaches such as mobility, soft tissue work and exercises for rehabilitation.
