Physiotherapy is the largest group of practitioners at LifeCare Croydon. Physiotherapists are experts in the prevention, diagnosis and rehabilitation of sporting injuries, as well as on advice for maintaining a healthy and injury-free lifestyle.
Physiotherapy is a profession focused on assessment, diagnosis, treatment and re-assessment to show improvements in function. Physio's use evidence based medicine when possible to rehabilitate your dysfunction/injury.
Our physiotherapists use a multidisciplinary treatment model to assist your rehabilitation and help you return to your highest possible level of function.
Physiotherapists are trained to assess the underlying causes of joint, muscle and nerve disorder, educate patients about managing their condition, and advise ways to prevent pain and injury.
We pride ourselves on being up to date with the latest physiotherapy research, treatment techniques and technologies. This allows us to assist our patients to return to work and sporting activities as soon as possible.
Physiotherapists are university educated health practitioners, with entry to the profession being at either Bachelor, Masters Degree or Doctorate level
The Australian Physiotherapy Association awards titles for further educated therapists. Our team includes one APA Sports & Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, as well as one Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist. These titles are protected and represent a level of post-graduate tertiary study of at least 2 years, as well as a level of clinical practice which is reviewed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
