What is Physiotherapy?
The practice of physiotherapy is the assessment of neuromuscular, musculoskeletal and cardiorespiratory systems, the diagnosis of diseases or disorders associated with physical dysfunction, injury or pain and the treatment, rehabilitation and prevention or relief of physical dysfunction, injury or pain to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment function and promote mobility.
Why Physio - Pilates Exercise for Rehab?
By teaching the client the basic principles of core strength under the "Therapeutic Exercise" program ensures that clients will become aware of how their bodies function. This is key with clients who have chronic neck, shoulder, joint and/or back issues and/or recovering from an injury or surgery. It ensures that clients reactivate and mobilize with accurate muscle patterning and balanced muscle strength, avoiding future injury and helping clients to get back to normal movement and staying that way.
