PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a healthcare profession that uses a variety of techniques, such as exercise, manual therapy, and electrotherapy, to help individuals recover from injuries, illnesses, and surgeries, and to manage chronic conditions. The goal of physiotherapy is to help patients achieve optimal movement and function, and to reduce pain and disability.

Physiotherapists work with patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly, and they treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Musculoskeletal conditions, such as back and neck pain, arthritis, and sports injuries
  • Neurological conditions, such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis
  • Respiratory conditions, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Cardiovascular conditions, such as chronic heart failure and rehabilitation after a heart attack

Physiotherapists use a combination of assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention strategies to help their patients. They also work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as doctors, nurses, and occupational therapists, to ensure that patients receive the most appropriate care.

Overall, physiotherapy is a hands-on approach of healing, by targeting the physical aspects of a patient’s well-being.

Exercise Physiology

EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGY

Exercise physiology is a branch of medicine that studies the effects of exercise on the human body, and how physical activity can be used to prevent and treat a wide range of chronic health conditions. It’s an interdisciplinary field that draws on knowledge from various disciplines such as sport science, kinesiology, physiology, and internal medicine.

Exercise physiologists and physicians who specialize in exercise psychiatry develop exercise programs and prescriptions for individuals with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, depression, anxiety, and obesity, just to mention a few. They also work with healthy individuals to improve their overall fitness level, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and promote healthy aging.

Exercise physiology combines the knowledge of physical activity and its effects on the body with an understanding of the pathophysiology of chronic diseases. This allows for a more comprehensive approach to the treatment of these conditions. They also provide education on the importance of physical activity, and help clients to understand how to safely and effectively incorporate regular physical activity into their lives.

Exercise physiology is becoming a more important field as the prevalence of chronic diseases increases and the importance of physical activity in preventing and managing these conditions becomes more widely recognised.

REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Remedial massage is a type of therapeutic massage that is specifically designed to target areas of the body that are experiencing pain, discomfort, or dysfunction. The massage therapist uses a variety of techniques, such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and stretching, to release tension and restore proper function to the affected muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue structures. The therapist will also typically use a range of assessment techniques to identify the source of the pain or dysfunction and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to the individual’s needs.

Remedial massage can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, injuries, muscle strains and sprains, and post-surgical recovery. It can help to improve range of motion, reduce muscle tension, increase circulation and promote the healing process of soft tissue. The therapist will also educate the patient on posture, ergonomics, and self-care techniques to aid in the recovery process.

Remedial massage is typically performed by trained and accredited massage therapists and can be done in a massage clinic or as part of a rehabilitation program. It’s also commonly covered by private health insurance as it’s an evidence-based practice with a positive outcome on treating musculoskeletal injuries, pain and discomfort.

THERAPEUTIC EXERCISE

Therapeutic exercise refers to the use of specific, targeted physical activities to aid in the rehabilitation and management of physical injuries or conditions. These exercises are typically prescribed and supervised by a healthcare professional, such as a physical therapist or physician, and are tailored to meet the specific needs of the individual. The exercises may include a combination of strength training, range-of-motion exercises, balance and coordination training, and cardiovascular activities. The goal of therapeutic exercise is to help individuals regain strength, flexibility, and function, while reducing pain and risk of further injury. It also improve overall physical fitness, better ability to perform daily activities and prevent further deterioration of the condition. Additionally, therapeutic exercise can provide a sense of accomplishment and help boost the individual’s motivation to continue the rehabilitation process.
