Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is an area of physiotherapy treating conditions and injuries which affect the muscles, joints and soft tissues. Treatment can include manual therapy, exercise therapy and self-management strategies.
Manual Therapy is a term used to describe how the therapist manually works on the structures causing the problem for the patient. The therapist uses his or her hands to assess the tissues, muscles, ligaments causing the pain and will manually mobilize the area until tension and adhesion is gone or at least eased. As soon as tension and pain is diminished a more natural movement pattern will take place and the recovery process will speed up.
Pediatric physiotherapy is for ALL children. Through a thorough assessment, the child’s strengths and difficulties are found. Together with the child and their family, goals and objectives are set for the treatment plan. Physiotherapy treatment can, amongst other things, help the child to improve their balance and coordination, their body awareness and their ability to play and explore.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (also called lymphatic drainage and lymph massage) is a very gentle massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart.
Lymph drainage massage is done in a specific rhythm and direction to increase the flow of the lymphatic system in the body. People with medical needs and those who are healthy can both benefit from this type of massage.
