Treatment list

 

For greater clarity to patients we decided to list the professional services provided by PHYSIOTHERAPY not in terms of the wide array of treatment modalities used, but rather in terms of general conditions/ailments this profession can effectively treat.

Please click on link "Treatment list" for a synopsis in Lay terms of these general conditions/ailments.

Did you know . . .

Physiotherapists are health and movement scientists 
and clinicians who make use of their PROFESSIONAL 
KNOWLEDGE, OBSERVATIONAL AND HANDS-ON SKILLS, 
EXPERIENCE, HI-TECH EQUIPMENT AND SPECIFIC EXERCISE 
THERAPY to, after careful assesment/evaluation, 
give you the right information, advice(referral if necessary), 
specific training and physical treatment for your individual
health needs.


Most Physiotherapists have 4 years of tertiary education, and 
continue their professional education through post-graduate 
courses, workshops, symposiums, lectures etc.


All practising Physiotherapists are registered with the HPCSA 
(Health Professions Council of SA).


Although Physiotherapists work in close collaboration with 
other medical practitioners, Physiotherapists are first line
practitioners. You may therefore consult a Physiotherapist 
without the need of a referral. Physiotherapy is usually 
covered by all good Medical Aid Schemes.
