Physiotherapy at Synergy Healthcare

Physical therapist working with clientPhysiotherapy is a science that is primarily concerned with the recovery or rehabilitation of impairments or disabilities caused by injury or illness. It helps to promote mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential. These benefits are created through specific examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention.

This specialty is a holistic approach that focuses on the science of movement. It helps people to restore, maintain and maximise their physical strength, function, mobility and overall wellbeing by addressing the underlying physical issues.

Common Symptoms

The most common symptom that a physiotherapist addresses is pain. This pain is usually musculoskeletal; it’s often accompanied by restricted movement and weakness.

The most important part of care at Synergy Healthcare is making sure that the patient knows that they’re in control of their recovery. Second in importance is doing the correct type of exercise. Massage, joint mobilisation and electrotherapy are also helpful in reducing tightness and stiffness.
