Suffering from a sports injury? Call now to schedule an appointment with your a physiotherapist.
Physiotherapy is a branch of medicine that deals with helping patients recover physical activity. If you’ve suffered an injury or a condition that causes physical impairment, physiotherapy can help you regain mobility and strength.
The Allied Health physiotherapists consulting from Lotus Medical Centre Brunswick provide comprehensive treatment that takes their patient’s needs and desires into account.
Who Should Visit a Physio?
If you’ve sustained a physical injury, or suffer from chronic pain, physiotherapy may treat your condition. Some of the most common ailments physiotherapists treat include:
- Spine and joint conditions
- Post-surgery rehabilitation
- Back and neck pain
- Strains and sprains
- Sports injuries
How Will Physiotherapy Help?
Physiotherapy is a multi-faceted approach that uses a combination of manual therapy such as massage, exercise programs, stretching, and homework to encourage tissue healing and reduce inflammation. However, if you only feel the pain in your feet and ankles, you may instead need to visit a podiatrist.
Physiotherapy can assist to help restore a normal range of motion by simultaneously treating the muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems.
If you’re an athlete, your physiotherapist can also advise you on how to avoid injury while training. Since ligament and tendon injuries can take months to heal, avoiding injury is the best way to remain race-ready until the big day.
What to Expect from Your Appointment with your Physiotherapist
Generally an appointment with the physiotherapists we support, starts with a conversation about your concerns and a short test to pinpoint the origin of your pain. Your physio will discuss your expectations and what you’d like to achieve. Then, they will provide treatment aimed at those goals.
At a regular physio session, your physio will use several manual treatment options to relieve pain and address your injury. They will also provide you with a personalised exercise plan to prevent the injury from reoccurring or getting worse. Your therapists will also provide you with an estimated recovery time and self-management plan to help you get back on track as soon as possible.
