The main aim of physiotherapy is to restore function. Assess and diagnose the problem, then plan and administer treatment programs that aim to restore function or minimise dysfunction after disease or injury. A combination of manual and exercise therapies is used to achieve this. Advice on posture and ergonomics is always provided aiming for the prevention of further injury or dysfunction.

Where necessary, patients are referred to local GP's and specialists for further assessment. Some physiotherapy patients have recurrent problems and other may present with injuries that are more acute.
At Medipod Clinics patients undergo a thorough assessment prior to physiotherapy treatment to identify the exact nature of the injury and what underlying factors could contribute to the pain.
Treatment is based on accurate manipulation of the affected area to gain rapid pain relief.
Re-training of muscles following an injury is essential, and we provide exercises aimed at restoring good posture to minimise the risk of re-occurrence.
A good posture also helps you to achieve the look of a healthy and well-balanced body.
