Physiotherapy- What is it?
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy in Australia (as quoted by the Australian Physiotherapy Association-APA) Using advanced techniques and evidence-based care, Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of health conditions and movement disorders. Physiotherapy helps to repair damage, reduce stiffness and pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life.
Many people may be of the opinion that physiotherapists mainly work with sports related injuries. However, this is not the case. At Medowie Family & Sports Physio we have the ability and knowledge to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of not just injuries but also movement disorders, stiffness, aches and pains, mobility, post surgery recovery Mike is dedicated to continuous development so that he can offer all of his patients the best, most up to date and individualised care possible. To achieve this, Mike is continually attending seminars, conferences, lectures and courses to gain the best knowledge for all areas of Physiotherapy. Recently Mike attended a Hip and Groin 3 days course in Melbourne. This was presented by international and Australian experts.
This week, Tuesday 23rd May, Mike is attending an Orthopaedic and Radiology Update of Shoulder and Hip Presentations, to be presented by local Orthopaedic Surgeon and Radiologist.
Next week, Monday 29th May, Mike will stand in on a foot and ankle surgery with a local surgeon. Mike has attended a knee surgery earlier this year.
This all helps Mike to gain further information and knowledge that can then be transferred to his patients.
