Physical therapy helps people of all ages who have medical conditions, illnesses or injuries that limit their regular ability to move and function.
Exercise is proven to be beneficial in the management of a number of musculoskeletal and health conditions.
Improper exercise prescription or incorrect technique can easily aggravate injuries. Physiotherapists have a strong understanding of injury pathology, are trained in identifying weaknesses or imbalances in the body, and can prescribe evidence based individualised exercise programs specifically tailored to your complaint.
The physiotherapists at 'V Care Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Care' routinely prescribe home exercises to complement your treatment and help improve your recovery from injury.
