Prevention: Maintain A Toned Physique.
Prevention is a key role for Physiotherapists. Physiotherapy promotes toned muscles and most physiotherapy patients find they have gained strength and muscle and lost fat after a few weeks of consistently going to their therapy sessions and performing their home exercises regularly.
Personal Independence and the pursuit of the perfect posture.
njury can easily effect activities of daily living and occupational performance. Pain can be a major barrier inhibiting personal independence, through limitation in movement and function. Would you like to be one of those people who seem to naturally have great posture? Physiotherapy can help you get there. While good posture requires thought and effort at first, over time it gets easier. It also becomes more natural as you strengthen your core muscles, which a physiotherapist can help you do.
