Physiotherapists have specific expertise in treating issues arising in the musculoskeletal system – that is, your nerves, bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The goal of the physiotherapist is to assist in recovery and maximise the potential for healing, which helps patients to return to optimal daily function and their chosen sporting activity as quickly as possible. The highly trained and experienced physiotherapists at Monteith Physiotherapy aim to provide their patients with the most positive experience possible within their new modern facilities.
People will usually arrange to consult a physiotherapist when they are experiencing pain, weakness, limited movement, or changes in sensation (such as numbness or pins and needles) which is impacting upon their daily activities. Common presenting issues are acute sporting injuries, headaches, neck and back pain, shoulder pain, workplace injuries, and post-operative shoulders, hips, knees and ankles.
Following a thorough assessment process, the physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan to address your specific needs. A wide variety of treatment techniques are offered by physiotherapists, including joint mobilisation and manipulation, massage, taping, and dry needling. Another vital component of a physiotherapist’s treatment plan is exercise therapy which incorporates strength training, postural re-education, balance training, stretching, neural stretching, and core stability/Pilates exercises.
