Physiotherapists help people of all ages who have physical problems that are caused by illness, accident, or ageing.

Physiotherapy, sometimes referred to as physio, helps people to improve their range of movement in order to promote health and well-being and recover use of their muscles and tendons.

Physiotherapists concentrate on problems that affect muscles, bones, the heart, circulation and lungs.

Physiotherapy involves a range of treatments, including:

  • Manipulation;
  • Massage;
  • Exercise;
  • Electrotherapy; and
  • Hydrotherapy.

Physiotherapy negligence claims

Physiotherapists are often overstretched, their resources are tight and the calls on their expertise are great.

Unfortunately physiotherapy could be performed negligently or the wrong type of physiotherapy may be performed both causing even more problems.

When mistakes are made it is the patients who suffer. This results in more pain, heartache and frustration for you and your families.
