What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a health profession that is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions that affect movement and function of the body. We treat under an evidence-based, medical model of care, and we take a bio-psycho-social to pain and injury. This means that we consider you as a person with complex inter-related systems at play, not just a bunch of isolated tissues, and this model is the gold standard way of managing pain and movement dysfunction.

In musculoskeletal physiotherapy, we focus on problems of pain, injury and movement dysfunction.

At Stack Physio, we strive to provide gold-standard care for our patients. You can read more about our approach here
