Our physiotherapy sessions incorporate both physical exercise and/or manual therapy to facilitate maximum recovery. Our aim is to resume functionality and movement. Our main treatment goals are to provide pain relief, restoration of normal function and strength, prevention of further injury and promotion of an active lifestyle.

If you are having problems moving around or have been falling over, please seek help from our physiotherapists .Injuries due to falls is a common problem amongst older adults above age 65. Falls may be prevented with the right intervention. Our physiotherapists will assess your physical condition and identify the causes of these falls.
