followed by an objective assessment. The Physiotherapist will then able
to discuss with you, your diagnosis and prognosis.

their condition and rehabilitation. The physiotherapist may use a number
of manual techniques, electrotherapy and complimentary therapies to help
restore or alleviate symptoms.

and advice to help rehabilitate each individual to full physical function. Physiotherapy bases it's skills around manual techniques which involve
the therapist mobilizing certain joints and soft tissue structures to alleviate
symptoms and restore balance to the body.

to assess the performance of the body during specific movements for dysfunction
and or weakness.
