Musculoskeletal physiotherapy will focus on the biomechanical and structural rehabilitation of the client. With targeted goals to maximise the individual’s functional movement so they can return to normal daily activities. This type of therapy is most commonly used to address accidental injuries, sports injuries and resolving physical impairment due to lifestyle and ageing.
The therapist will focus on the bodies’ main structures of bone, muscle, ligaments and tendons along with the connected systems of the heart, circulation and lungs. Treatment is tailored to the individual based on their initial assessment. Exercise plans and advice are routinely given following treatment and the number of treatments will vary depending on the clients’s progress in recovery.
