Physiotherapy can involve a number of different techniques depending on the nature of the specific problem. These may involve treatments such as joint mobilisation, massage, ultrasound therapy or acupuncture to give a few examples. Your physiotherapist will assess, diagnose, treat and give appropriate rehabilitation advice tailored to your individual needs. You may also be referred to a different specialist if this is indicated.
It is often important to look beyond the issue too, into surrounding circumstances and lifestyle habits so that appropriate rehabilitation advice can be given.
