Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists focus on both prevention and rehabilitation. Physiotherapists are experts in anatomy, movement and function that treat a wide range of injuries, diseases and disorders.

At Woolwich Physiotherapy, our primary focus is on orthopaedic injuries and conditions. Orthopaedic physiotherapy is an active form of therapy that focuses on restoring or improving movement patterns, strength and overall function of the musculoskeletal system.

The physiotherapist will:

  • Assess and work towards a diagnosis of your condition
  • Create a treatment plan that sets goals with you
  • Prescribe exercises, modify exercises and any assistive devices you may need
  • Educate you on ways to manage your condition and maximize your mobility
  • Use manual therapy, modalities (ultrasound, TENS, Acupuncture etc.), and exercise progressions during your treatment as per their discretion
