Injury Prevention and the role of a Physiotherapist
In an age where we can track most daily occurrences and habits through technology the role of a physiotherapist is changing from an injury management perspective to an injury prevention perspective.
As highly trained health professionals, physiotherapists have the skills and knowledge to be able to empower and educate patients on how to prevent injuries.
Listen to your body
Waiting for an injury to occur before taking notice may turn what could be a quick fix into a longer rehabilitation program. Those little aches, niggles, pains and stiffness you experience are the first signs something may need to be addressed. Being proactive and addressing these niggles and potential weaknesses in your body may help prevent an injury.
