What is musculoskeletal physiotherapy?

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is a specialised area of physiotherapy treating injuries and conditions which affect muscles, joints, and soft tissues.

Where can Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy be beneficial?

Some injuries that can be treated include:

  • Ligament sprains

  • Muscular strains

  • Arthritis and Osteoarthritis

  • Neck and back pain

  • Pre and Post-surgical rehabilitation

  • Chronic pain and chronic muscular injuries

These injuries will require an assessment and treatment session to assist with recovery by optimising the healing process. Goals will also be developed and set to further facilitate a rehabilitation plan between therapist and patient. This collaboration is fundamental to a quicker recovery and is key to overall well-being.

Some examples of treatment include:

  • Manipulation and manual therapy

  • Massage

  • Self-management strategies

  • Exercise programs

How does treatment and rehabilitation planning help? 

As mentioned above we are trying to optimise your recovery process and allow you to return to normal activities by:

  • Improving muscle strength and flexibility

  • Improving range of motion, ease and quality of movement

  • Improving coordination and control of movement

  • Relieving pain and eliminating it

  • Decreasing swelling and inflammation

  • Helping patients to develop coping strategies with chronic pain to enable normal movement patterns

  • Programming exercise plans to assist with recovery and prehabilitation to eliminate re-injuring yourself, either home or gym based

  • Improving patient's day to day level of independence and self-sufficiency
