Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem, help you understand what’s wrong, and assist you in implementing a treatment plan that takes into account your physical abilities, pain, lifestyle, general health, and health and fitness goals.

The following are common treatment methods used by physiotherapists:

  • Exercise programs to improve joint mobility, strengthen muscles and improve motor control
  • Joint manipulation and mobilisation to reduce pain and stiffness
  • Taping, bracing and orthotics
  • Airway clearance techniques and breathing exercises
  • Soft tissue release (e.g. massage, dry needling, foam rolling, spikey massage balls)
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Assistance with use of aids, splints, crutches, walking sticks and wheelchairs to help you move around
  • Advice and education to help you better understand and manage your condition

Individual physiotherapists tend to specialise in a particular field and often gain membership with a professional group to keep up with the latest research, courses and developments. These groups include, but are not limited to, Cancer, Palliative Care and Lymphoedema; Cardiorespiratory; Gerontology; Musculoskeletal; Neurological; Paediatric; Sports and Exercise; and Women’s Health.
