Why physio is important for injury treatment?

July 04, 20242 min read

Physiotherapy stands as a vital component in the recovery journey from injuries, pain and limited movement, playing a crucial role beyond mere symptom management. Let's have a look at why physiotherapy is important for effective injury treatment:

1. Individualised Care and Monitoring:

We provide personalised care plans based on the specific injury, its severity, and the patient's overall health status. We monitor progress closely, adjusting treatment strategies as needed to ensure optimal recovery.

2. Pain Management:

Physiotherapy employs various evidence-based techniques to alleviate pain associated with injuries. Through targeted interventions such as hands-on therapy, shockwave therapy, exercise rehab, and acupuncture we aim to reduce pain levels and improve overall comfort.

Physiotherapy does not need to be painful to be effective. Some physical conditions may be uncomfortable. Slow gentle movements can assist in reducing the discomfort.

3. Specialised care

Physiotherapists provide personaliszed care plans based on the specific injury, its severity, and the patient's overall health status. We work with you to manage your injury till it heals and strengthens the body which may prevent the injury from occurring again.

4. Movement correction

We are trained as movement specialists and problem solvers. This enables us to assess movement patterns that may make it more likely for you to be injured. We strengthen and teach you to move efficiently!

5. Restoring Range of Motion and Function:

Injuries often lead to reduced range of motion and limit your functions. Physio interventions focus on improving flexibility, joint mobility, and overall physical function. We like to work with you to gain function so you can return to activities you did before the injury.

6. Referrals

Physiotherapists are the first providers and can assess and treat your injury and refer you for further investigation if this is required, such as x-rays or ultrasounds. Physios can also refer you to a GP or other specialists as necessary. 

YOU DO NOT need a referral to see us. If it is an ACC injury, we can register the claim for you during your session with us.

7. Physio is for everyone

Physiotherapy is for everyone from mums and babies to the elderly. Movement is one of the key factors to stay healthy.

Physiotherapy’s significance in injury treatment extends far beyond rehabilitation.
