Physiotherapy treatment and exercises are the world’s premier modalities for fixing and preventing physical health problems. Physiotherapy treatment changes lives for the better by providing solutions for any and all movement problems.
From babies to the elderly, physiotherapy treatment and physiotherapy exercises can make every aspect of your life better. Whether it is how you work, how you play or even how you sleep, physiotherapy exercises can help you perform all of these functions better.
Everything you do involves a complex interaction of the joints, muscles and nervous system control of your whole body. It stands to reason, therefore, that all injuries which involve performing a certain function, must involve an assessment of each component of the movement as well as addressing the performance of the function as a whole.
This is the physiotherapist treatment advantage. Because physiotherapists have many more treatment techniques and can treat a problem from many different angles, you have the possibility of experiencing better, faster results.
Physiotherapy Melbourne includes many physiotherapy clinics in Melbourne which work across different areas of medicine including orthopaedic (muscles, bones), cardio-thoracic (heart and lungs), neurology (brain and spinal cord), paediatric (babies and children), and even pre and post-natal (pregnancy and childbirth). Physiotherapists also form part of a medical team that can work with your doctor or other health professionals to ensure that your care is coordinated and maximally effective.
The best physiotherapist is the one who can analyze how each component movement contributes to your function as a whole and then is able to treat, train and automate these components to produce optimal performance.
The best physiotherapist is the one who assesses the mobility of your joints, the strength of your muscles and the control of your movements to determine deficits and identify causes. The best physiotherapists then use “hands on” techniques to free up specific joints, loosen specific muscles and mobilize the nervous system to create the optimal environment for healing.
These techniques also make rehabilitative exercise more effective, which makes postural and movement correction more effective. Consequently, all the treatment that we perform at Bodywise Health is not just directed at healing your problem, but importantly directed at getting you back doing the things you love to do whether it be playing with the kids, going for a run or playing tennis.
