Physiotherapy uses a rounded approach in the prevention, diagnosis and therapeutic management of spinal and joint disorders. It is concerned with maximising mobility and quality of life.
Physiotherapists have a wide scope of practice, from the acute care of injuries (for example neck and sporting conditions), through to rehabilitation following surgery or bony fractures. Physiotherapists often have an educational role in injury prevention and occupational health and safety.
At Brighton Spine and Sports Clinic, all physiotherapists are members of the Australian Physiotherapy Association and have areas of special interest and expertise, providing manipulation and manual therapy, Pilates, exercise prescription and gym based rehabilitation.
