There are similarities in all three allied health professionals when treating musculoskeletal pain conditions. The techniques we use can be similar, but have differences as well.

 

Physiotherapy uses evidenced based assessments and treatment options such as joint and soft tissue, nerve mobilizations and manipulation, as well as exercise therapy to help you be on the mend from most musculoskeletal pain disorders. Physiotherapy focuses on patient empowerment for the long term through awareness, education and positive dispositions.
