Physiotherapy is not only for athletes or people who play sports.
Physiotherapists are experts in human movement, and they specialise in diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating musculoskeletal injuries and nerve pain. They cover all muscles, ligaments, tendons and skeletal-associated problems including posture, osteoarthritic issues, nerve issues, pelvic floor and continence control, and the monitoring and prevention of heart and lung conditions and so much more.
Why might you need Physiotherapy?
If you have an injury.
You may not even know you have an injury; most people associate injuries with bruising and swelling, but this is not always the case. An injury can appear through a sharp pain, dull ache or reduction of movement you once had or have in the opposite limb (eg right arm compared to injured left arm).
If you experience chronic pain.
You may be surprised that physiotherapists can improve and prevent further chronic illnesses. So if you have any recurring pain or aches relating to anything osteopathic (arthritis and posture), nerve pain or breathing difficulties, our Sydney physios can help you.
What can we do?
Manual massage is the most common physiotherapy treatment and usually the go-to for musculoskeletal and sports injuries. It can involve joint mobilisations, manipulations (not as bad as it sounds!), muscle massage, stretching and specialised shoulder and knee physiotherapy.
We also have a range of state of the art machines that we use to help reduce pain and speed up your recovery.
We utilise a range of electrotherapy modalities (devices that use electrical signals to reduce swelling and promote healing). We incorporate ultrasound, TENS machines, interferential and laser therapy to help achieve the best results for your individual needs.
Dry needling and acupuncture can be used in support of our other treatments to help get you get back in shape as soon possible.
Long-term injuries and prevention strategies.
We don’t only treat injuries; we provide education and training and advice on stretches and warm ups to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place. Remember, prevention is much better (and easier) than rehabilitation.
At CBD Physio our team of experienced professionals will thoroughly investigate, diagnose and treat your injuries to get you back up and moving no matter how old, young, athletic or not you are.
