Physical Health
Physical therapy (physiotherapy) is holistically tailored to individuals to help them restore movement and function following injury, illness, surgery or disability.

Physiotherapy can be helpful for a wide range of conditions including such as,

  • pain due to injury or repetitive strain such as back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain
  • herniated and degenerative spinal disc
  • movement problems following injury or surgery, stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease

  • breathing problems due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis
