    Everything you need to know about physio

    Benefits of Physio

    Physiotherapist assess, diagnose, treat, and works to prevent disease and injury through hands on care. Physiotherapists are experts in functional movement and injury rehab and prevention who work in partnership with their clients, in assisting them to overcome pain, loss in range of motion and function, which may have been present from being born, acquired through school, work or sport accident/injury, or are the result of ageing or life-changing events.

    A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to help you understand the most appropriate treatment for your situation, including accountability and treatment outcomes.

    A doctor's referral is not necessary to see a physio. Health professionals will often work as part of a team to manage treatment for a condition.
