Physiotherapy can help just about anyone with almost any injury - regardless of healing stage. The main focus of all physiotherapy treatments is to reduce pain, improve range of motion and reteach the activities of daily living. All of this is designed to reduce the risk of re-injury which will lead to a fuller and more independent life.
Physiotherapy isn't only for new injuries. In fact, it can be used as a great preventative tool for athletes, individuals who have a lot of manual labour or consistent repetitive tasks as part of their day to day job. Physiotherapy will be able to teach the proper alignment of your muscles, so you can avoid injury before it happens.
