Our Approach to Therapy

Physiotherapy is a medical profession that takes a holistic approach to prevention, diagnosis, and management of a range of problems within the body. With their deep understanding and knowledge, combined with specialized hands-on techniques, physiotherapists are able to assess, diagnose and treat the various symptoms of injury, disability, and illness. Their focus centers around preventing and rehabilitating injuries, as well as the promotion of overall health and fitness.
