Reclaim Your Mobility and Independence with Fizzio Clinics

Physiotherapy

What is Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a healthcare profession dedicated to enhancing and restoring the physical function and mobility of individuals who are affected by injury, illness, or disability. Through a combination of manual therapy, exercises, education, and advice, physiotherapists work to alleviate pain, improve movement, and prevent further injury.

Physiotherapy involves the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of physical conditions using non-invasive techniques. It focuses on the musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiopulmonary systems to help patients recover from physical setbacks. Physiotherapists are trained to understand the body’s movements and functions, allowing them to create personalised treatment plans tailored to each individual’s needs.

Different types of Physiotherapy relevant to Older Adults

As we age, maintaining physical health and mobility becomes increasingly important to ensure a high quality of life. Physiotherapy offers a range of specialized treatments designed to address the unique needs of older adults, helping to manage chronic conditions, alleviate pain, improve mobility, and prevent injuries. Here are some key types of physiotherapy that are particularly beneficial for older adults

musculoskeltal Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy working with a client

Focuses on the musculoskeletal system, addressing issues such as fractures, sprains, strains, arthritis, and post-surgery rehabilitation. This type of therapy helps patients restore mobility, strength, and function, allowing them to return to their daily activities and improve their quality of life.

Neurological Physiotherapy

Hydrotherapy Physiotherapy
