What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a therapeutic health profession concerned with enhancing mobility and quality of life by using clinical reasoning with evidence-based research to deliver the most suitable treatment for an injury or condition.
Physiotherapists take a holistic approach, looking at the body as a whole rather than focusing on the individual factors of an injury or an illness. The person being treated is directly involved in their own care. Physiotherapists look at a person’s individual situation in formulating appropriate treatment techniques. Physiotherapy can be used to help manage health conditions that affect bones, joints and soft tissues (musculoskeletal), and the heart and the blood circulation (cardiovascular).

How does it work ?
Physiotherapists are trained to assess and treat the underlying causes of joint, muscle and nerve disorder, educate patients about managing their condition, and advise ways to prevent pain and injury. Often, a personal exercise program is prescribed.
We use a wide range of drug-free techniques to relieve pain, restore function and movement, and prevent further problems. These techniques include:
• Joint mobilisation – a manual therapy where therapists apply “a continuum of skilled passive movements to the joint complex” at varying speeds.
• Therapeutic exercise and stretches – physical activities prescribed to achieve improved respiratory capacity, improved coordination, improved mobilisation of joints, improved balance, improved circulation, improved muscle strength and to release contracted muscles, tendons and fascia.
• Soft tissue massage – technique that involve direct physical action on muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia or other soft tissues on the body. It helps improve blood circulation, quicken healing time of muscular tissues and strained ligaments, and helps in relaxing muscles.
• Taping – Strapping tape and Supportive taping is commonly used by physiotherapists to:
- Relieve your pain
- Improve joint stability
- Enhance athlete confidence
- Reduce injury recurrence
- Prevent injury
Aims of Strapping Tape
After your assessment, your physiotherapist will design your optimal taping to best meet your current needs, These can include:
- stabilise or support the injury
- pain-relief via a de-loading of the vulnerable or painful structures
