Physiotherapy (Physical Therapy) is as old as medicine itself, dating back to Ancient Greece in the era of Hippocrates. Since then, physiotherapy has evolved from a simple massage to a complex portfolio of therapies with many specialized applications. Physiotherapy is a safe, effective and medically based approach to health care which aims to increase a patient’s overall health. Physiotherapy treatments can assist seniors, athletes, auto injury victims, workplace injuries, those recovering from childbirth and surgery. In addition, common age-related issues such as arthritis, stroke, heart conditions, lung diseases, neurological conditions, spina bifida and cerebral palsy can be successfully treated by physiotherapists.
Through physiotherapy, many patients are able to gain unrestricted movement and physical independence to carry out our normal lifestyle or work.
