What is Orthopaedic / Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy?
This is the branch of physiotherapy concerned with the treatment of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints and ligaments. Orthopedic Physiotherapy also includes pre and post operative rehabilitation of hip, shoulder and knee. Orthopedic Physiotherapy is a scientific approach to treatment following Evidence Based Guidelines.
Initially the physiotherapist will carry out a clinical assessment and this is followed by appropriate treatments. It is important to get to the source of the problem and prevent a re-occurrence.
