How Is Your Health?

5 Types Of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can greatly help those with physical impairments, pain and mobility issues. However, not everyone knows exactly what physiotherapy is or the different types of physiotherapy available. This blog post explores five of the main types of physiotherapy so that you can better understand how it can help you or your loved one.

Orthopedic Physiotherapy

Orthopedic physiotherapy focuses on musculoskeletal injuries such as sprains, strains, broken bones and joint pain. Orthopedic physiotherapists will assess the injury and create a treatment plan to help reduce pain, improve movement and strengthen muscles. These treatments may include exercises, manual therapy techniques (such as massage), ultrasound or electrotherapy.

Neurological Physiotherapy

This type of physiotherapy focuses on helping people with neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy or those recovering from a stroke. Neurological physiotherapists improve strength, balance and coordination while also helping reduce pain associated with these conditions.

Cardiovascular/Pulmonary Physiotherapy

Cardiovascular/pulmonary physio helps people who have heart or lung conditions such as COPD or asthma. This type of physio works on improving overall cardiovascular fitness by focusing on endurance exercises as well as breathing techniques that are specifically designed for each individual patient.

Geriatric Physiotherapy

Geriatric physio is designed for seniors who are experiencing age-related problems such as arthritis, poor balance or fall prevention. Geriatric physiotherapists will focus on developing programs that help seniors stay active while also promoting independence through strengthening exercises tailored to each person's individual needs and abilities. The goals are typically centred around helping seniors maintain their mobility in order to continue living independently.

Pediatric Physiotherapy

Pediatric physio is designed specifically for children who have physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy or spina bifida. Pediatric physios work with children from birth up until adolescence in order to help them reach their full potential and live life as independently as possible despite any physical impairments they may have. Treatment plans may involve therapeutic exercise programs tailored specifically for each child's needs in order to develop muscle strength and improve balance while reducing any discomfort they may be experiencing due to their condition.


There are many types of physiotherapy available depending on your particular needs or those of your loved one's needs. It's important that you find a qualified professional who specialises in the type of therapy you need so that you get the best results possible from your treatment plan. For further advice and info, contact a local physiotherapist today.

About Me

How is Your Health?

How is your health? This may seem like a simple question but it is, in fact, a potentially complex one. A lot of things can go wrong with the human body and unfortunately, a lot of those things may be hidden from sight. I thought that everything was great. But it turns out that I had super high blood pressure, I was overweight and I also had a problem with my knees. Thankfully, when I finally went to see a doctor, he was able to help me out! I decided to start this blog so I could encourage others to look after their health.
