Physiotherapy at Origin Health
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury or illness by using a variety of techniques such as movement and exercise, manual hands-on therapy, education and advice.
At Origin Health, our practitioners work collaboratively to help provide the best care for our patients. For example, our osteopaths can support, or be supported by, our physiotherapist, sports therapists, or our nutritionist, if required.
How Can Physiotherapy Help?
Some of the main approaches used by physiotherapists include:
- Education and advice – physiotherapists can give general advice about things that can affect patients’ daily lives, such as posture and correct lifting, or carrying techniques to help prevent injuries
- Movement, tailored exercise and physical rehab advice – exercises may be recommended to improve your general health and mobility, and to strengthen specific parts of your body, and to help people get back to sport.
- Manual therapy – where the physiotherapist uses their hands to help relieve pain and stiffness, and to encourage better movement of the body
