What does a Physiotherapist do?
The purpose of the physiotherapist is to improve the quality of life of any person that comes for an appointment by using a variety of treatments to alleviate pain and restore function or, in the case of permanent injury or disease, to lessen the effects of any dysfunction.
Adelaide Physiotherapist Qualifications?
Physiotherapists in Adelaide (And across all states in Australia) must complete a minimum of 4 years specialised education at University and are also registered by the Australian government as health care professionals.

A referral by a doctor is not a requirement to visit a physiotherapist; however,  medical doctors usually recommend a course of physiotherapy to help treat an injury or condition.

What types of Treatments does a Physiotherapist Offer?
Any treatment is tailored to suit each individual’s specific requirements, and our  physiotherapists will choose from a wide range of therapies, including:

·   Manual therapies – These can include joint manipulation and mobilisation (which provides for spinal mobilisation), manual resistance training, and stretching.

·   Exercise programmes – Such as muscle strengthening, posture re-training, cardiovascular stretching and training.

·   Electrotherapy techniques – Consists of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), laser therapy, diathermy, and ultrasound therapy.

In many cases, there are other underlying factors causing an injury. For example, it could be that constant back pain is caused by bad posture, repetitive work-related activities, adopting the wrong technique when playing a sport or even being overweight. Accordingly, the physiotherapist not only treats the back pain but addresses the other factors too. This holistic approach aims to reduce the risk of the injury happening again.
