FAQ

  1. How can physiotherapy help me recover from an illness or injury?

    Physiotherapy uses a variety of methods and exercises to enhance movement, lessen pain, and accelerate healing. We will evaluate your particular injury or condition and create a specialised treatment plan to suit your requirements. Physiotherapy works to regain function, improve mobility, and speed up your recovery through manual therapy, exercises, stretches, and other techniques.

  2. Does physiotherapy work for people of all ages?

    Yes, physiotherapy can help people of all ages, from young children to senior citizens. Physiotherapy can be customized to meet the specific needs of each age group, whether it be treating developmental delays in children, managing sports injuries in teenagers, or providing rehabilitation for seniors.

  3. How long will recovery from physiotherapy take?

    Your condition or injury’s nature and severity, as well as personal aspects like general health and adherence to the treatment plan, all influence how long recovery takes. To establish reasonable expectations and provide an estimated timetable for your recovery, we will work closely with you. It’s crucial to remember that regular attendance at physiotherapy sessions and adherence to home exercise regimens can greatly accelerate your recovery.

  4. What kind of methods are employed in physiotherapy?

    Physiotherapy uses a range of methods that are adapted to your particular needs. These might include manual therapy, soft tissue and joint mobilization, therapeutic exercises, electrotherapy modalities (like electrical stimulation or ultrasound), heat or cold therapy, and instruction in posture and body mechanics. Your condition and treatment objectives will determine the combination of techniques used.

  5. Do I require a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist?

    To see a physiotherapist, you frequently do not need a doctor’s referral. Physiotherapists are primary healthcare providers, so you can frequently approach them directly for assistance. However, it’s best to check with your insurance company or healthcare network because some insurance plans or healthcare systems might need a referral or pre-authorization.

  6. Can physiotherapy help with chronic pain conditions?

    Yes, physiotherapy can play a crucial role in managing chronic pain conditions. By addressing underlying issues such as muscle imbalances, joint dysfunctions, or movement compensations, physiotherapy aims to reduce pain, improve function, and enhance your quality of life. Through a multimodal approach, we will work together to develop strategies for pain management and long-term symptom relief.
