WHY PHYSIOTHERAPY

 

Physiotherapy aims to reduce pain, improve your movement and aid in return to sport after an injury. 

This is done  through increasing flexibility, range of motion, building strength and through postural correction. 

 

Physiotherapy is often prescribed for patients following spine surgery, to treat soft tissue trauma, nerve injury, muscle spasms, fractures, arthritis, and many other problems.

Physiotherapy is also provided for in-patients to encourage early mobilization, improve  cardiovascular endurance and promote independence.

Do I need to be referred?

The short answer is NO.

Physiotherapists are a regulated, primary health care provider. This means that one does not require a referral to see a physiotherapist.

 

In some instances, certain medical aids may require a referral letter in order to assist in the claim process. This however is very rare and is only in cases of more severe injuries, conditions or trauma.

 

Overall, it is said that doctors refer more to physiotherapists than any other health profession.
