What is a Physiotherapist?
A physiotherapist is a licensed clinician who studies the body's movement. They can pinpoint an injury's root cause. If you have an injury or suffer from chronic pain, and it affects your day-to-day life, a physiotherapist could help.
People who've gone through a hip or knee replacement surgery, people with sprained ankles, and even those who have had a heart attack or stroke can benefit from treatment with a physiotherapist. Your physiotherapist will help with both the treatment and prevention of injuries.
Not only can they help with neck and back pain, problems in the bones and joints, muscles and ligaments, but a physiotherapist can also aid with lung problems, cardiovascular fitness and even digestive discomfort.
Any health professional, including doctors can refer to a physiotherapist however a referral isn't necessary as Physiotherapists are first-contact practitioners. They will require a detailed medical history including previous diagnoses, injuries or trauma, as well as your movement history growing up. This helps them understand the life your physical body has lived. After that, the physiotherapist will assess your condition and give you a diagnosis. Your treatment plan is devised based on your goals and assessment findings. It will involve education to help you understand your body, prescribed exercises to support your body and any relevant hands-on treatment.
