Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department

Neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy
The treatment of musculoskeletal condition is a specialised area of physiotherapy. As clinical specialists in Neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy, we use musculoskeletal evaluation techniques that help identify the specific problem creating pain and disability. Our therapists utilise current, research-based protocols and treatment plans that are customised to your individual goals. In addition, we keep close communication with you and your physician to ensure that appropriate progress and recovery is achieved.
The best results require a partnership between therapist and patient.
