Physiotherapists are graduates of a recognized university-based school of physiotherapy and are qualified to provide preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic services aimed at restoring function and preventing disability arising from disease, trauma or injury. With their applied knowledge and understanding of the human body in action, Physiotherapists are able to help you to increase your mobility, relieve pain, build strength and improve balance and cardiovascular function. Physiotherapists not only treat injuries, they also teach you how to prevent the onset of pain or injury that can limit your activity.

Orthopaedics is defined as the branch of medicine devoted to the study and treatment of the skeletal system, its joints, muscles and associated structures. Physiotherapists specializing in this field have extensive knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology which is the basis for the assessment and treatment of orthopaedic problems.

Orthopaedic Physiotherapy commonly involves pain management, mobilization of soft tissue and joints and the selective stretching and strengthening of muscles. Gains in range of motion and strength are then applied to functional activity.
