Waterfall Health Centre, Country Estate Drive, Johannesburg, 2090
Physiotherapy refers to the practice where an evaluation is used to diagnose and treat an injury, to improve a person abilit y to do all daily activities of living. We use our scientific knowledge of the human body to educate patients in an effort to prevent any recurring injuries or chronic pain.Physiotherapy focuses mainly on PAIN, STIFFNESS, INSTABILITY, WEAKNESS and LOSS OF FUNCTION of the muscles, joints and neural structures.I believe in the use of 'hands on' treatment techniques combined with dry needling, taping, exercise and electro therapy modalities to get the best possible result for your recovery.
