What are physiotherapists trained to do?
Physiotherapists are trained to diagnose and treat many different conditions. There are broadly four types of complaint:
Neurological- these are conditions relating to the brain or nervous system.
Neuromuscular- any problems with joints, the skeleton or muscles or tendons.
Respiratory- this includes sufferers of cystic fibrosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and asthma.
What will my first treatments consist of?
As a physiotherapist would look at a patient holistically, their focus would be to educate and advise them how to avoid the problem reoccurring. They would inform the patient of the correct way to lift and carry, how to modify their diet and how to function in a way that avoids pain and injury. The posture will be examined to see if it is affecting the problem. The aim is to improve the overall wellbeing of their patient. They may suggest an exercise regime to improve health and mobility, and to strengthen the body.
How long will it take to recover?
As with most conditions that depends on a large number of factors. The physiotherapistwill put a treatment plan together which should take you well on your way to recovery.
Is it affordable?
