Physiotherapy has an important role in reducing pain and restoring function in a range of conditions such as sport and work injuries, arthritis, post surgery and motor vehicle accidents. Following a detailed assessment, problem areas are identified and appropriate treatment and exercises are provided. The goal is not only to resolve pain but also treat the underlying causes, preventing the pain from returning.
