What is Physiotherapy?

What often comes to mind whenever Physiotherapy is mentioned, is that it’s only a treatment that’s sought after when a person has suffered a sports or back-related injury.

However, what most people may not realise about Physiotherapy, or Physical Therapy as it is sometimes referred to, is that it can be used to aid in the recovery of a wide range of ailments – even improving a person’s quality of life in the absence of any injuries. Physiotherapy is most commonly used to treat a patient’s physical problems to do with mobility. These mobility issues commonly stem from everyday injuries, diseases or illnesses, and aging. Regardless, Physiotherapy has also been proven to be as effective for the promotion of a person’s general well-being and longevity – especially in the case of active individuals who want to mitigate any risk of strain or injury that could come from playing sports, or when engaged in other strenuous activities.

At The Glen Back Care and Sports Therapy, our certified team of Physiotherapists conducts regular Physiotherapy sessions for patients, helping them alleviate any pain, and restore any lost or impaired function to affected areas of the body. We work hand-in-hand with our patients to develop specifically tailored Physiotherapy plans that help them attain the fullest potential of their health.

How Does it Work?

While the issues of a person’s health and level of mobility may vary from one patient to the next, our Physiotherapists provide personalised therapy plans that specifically caters to individual needs. Much like how every patient is different, no one day is the same when considering the numerous roles and treatments performed by Physiotherapists at The Glen Back Care and Sports Therapy.

Our Physiotherapists engage patients through a number of roles throughout the duration of their treatment. These roles range from diagnosis of a patient’s health objectives, to rehabilitation, training, and education. We treat patients of all age groups, and lifestyle categories. Since Physiotherapy can be prescribed for a wide range of patient profiles, our Physiotherapists are confident in addressing a breadth of issues to do with pediatrics, sports medicine, chronic disease management, and elderly care.

Depending on a patient’s age profile, and desired health outcome, Physiotherapy sessions at The Glen Back Care and Sports Therapy see our certified Physiotherapists recommending a variety of treatments that involve manual therapy, exercise regimens, and even electrotherapy techniques. As Physiotherapy is an effectively prescribed treatment for a wide range of conditions, it often encompasses three main areas of rehabilitation and recovery, through musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiothoracic treatments.

How Physiotherapy Can Help You

A typical Physiotherapy session at The Glen Back Care and Sports Therapy usually begins with an assessment by one of our qualified Physiotherapists. Through the verbal and physical assessment, a treatment plan can be formulated in order to help a patient achieve their desired health outcomes in the shortest amount of time necessary.

Once the assessment phase of a consultation is completed, regular Physiotherapy sessions are scheduled and conducted within the privacy of your own treatment room within our facilities in Glen Waverley. We take our personalised treatments seriously, and patients can rest assured that they will be cared for throughout the course of their treatment, with utmost professionalism and compassion by our Physiotherapists and healthcare practitioners.

Whether it’s to help elderly members of our community maintain their mobility and independence, or to assist competitive athletes in staying at their best level of physical ability, The Glen Back Care and Sports Therapy focuses on hands-on approaches to assisting in your recovery, and prolonging the health and well-being of our clients.
