WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy is concerned with human function and movement and maximising quality of life
What should I expect Physiotherapy to involve?
Physiotherapy involves a thorough physical assessment of the patient. This is followed by the implementation of a range of treatment modalities specific to the individual. Treatments are often 'hands on' in nature and are aimed at restoring optimal joint movement and tissue function. Patients are usually prescribed appropriate exercises or stretches to do in the clinic and at home.
What sort of treatment do physiotherapists use?
Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem, and help you understand the condition and manage your health.

They will also give you an exercise program to maintain movement and strength in the unaffected joints and muscles in the arm. Once the bone has healed, the physiotherapist is there to provide you with treatment to restore movement, reduce stiffness and increase strength.
