Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

What is musculoskeletal physiotherapy?

It means treatment of the musculoskeletal system, which includes muscles, bones, joints, nerves, ligaments, cartilage and discs in the spine.

Physiotherapists have undergone years of training to learn techniques which work on the joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons within the body. After an injury, operation or just through lack of use joints can become stiff, muscles can become tight and ligaments/tendons less mobile. Also nerves can become less mobile due to scar tissue that may have settled around them. Manual therapy and massage can address these problems restoring movement in joints, length of muscles and mobility of nerves. Along with setting you exercises this treatment can help prepare your body to resist the stresses of daily activities and sport.

What does musculoskeletal physiotherapy involve?

The assessment by the physiotherapist will determine which techniques they feel will benefit the most. This can be a combination of exercise, mobilising the joints, massage of muscles and soft tissues, advice and education, postural awareness and acupuncture.
