Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

These injuries require a musculoskeletal physiotherapy assessment and a treatment session to optimise healing and speed the recovery process. Upon assessment the physiotherapist will set goals and develop an appropriate rehabilitation plan. Some of the treatments which the musculoskeletal physiotherapist may use can include:
• Exercise therapy 
• Manual therapy 
• Electrotherapy
• Self-management strategies.
The most appropriate treatments will be selected upon the clinical judgement and the experience of the Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist on the findings from the initial assessment. Treatments for musculoskeletal injuries aim to:
• Optimise healing 
• Speed the recovery process 
• Increase strength 
• Restore normal movement 
• Decrease pain 
• Decrease swelling and inflammation 
• Increase independence
