How We Can help
Physiotherapy is the treatment of pain, injury or deformity in the body by physical methods such as massage, taping, joint mobilisations, and exercise rather than by the use of drugs or surgery.
Different therapists bring different skills and training to physiotherapy therapy. All depending on the approach, therapists will use a variety of tools and techniques.
We have multiple companies that work within Cherry Tree Therapy Centre that provide physiotherapy services.

An initial Physiotherapy session includes a detailed subjective and objective assessment of the problematic area. Treatment and advice then follow, as well as the teaching of some exercises to do at home which helps with recovery. Further appointments for treatment can follow until the injury improves.
Treatment modalities include joint mobilisations, massage, soft tissue release, acupuncture, taping, strengthening exercises, postural re-education and many more options depending on the nature of the injury.
The amount of sessions needed varies for different people, some only need a few sessions, whereas others use Physiotherapy over a longer period of time.
If subsequent sessions are needed, these sessions will be used to reflect, discuss, and then conduct further Physiotherapy techniques.
During your final session, the therapist will discuss with you your progress and thoughts. At this stage, the therapist can provide you with techniques and tasks you can use to help sustain the progress you have made in sessions.
