Physical Therapy is a private practice setting where each therapist has the freedom and time to commit to each patient individually. It is a hands-on, bio-mechanical treatment of all aspects of the workings of the human body from physical elements to the cellular. Using deep tissue manipulation, ultra-sound, dry-needling (Orthopaedic acupuncture) and rehabilitative exercise based on the teachings of Yoga for all-over body wellness to help prevent the injury from returning.
A Chartered Physiotherapist, also a scientific approach, will be a more hospitalised setting. Using Rehabilitative exercises to repair damaged tissue and complimentary modalities such as electrotherapy and exercise machines or gym-work and pilates to strenghten core muscular structures. This is normally in a group setting in a hospital although can now be found in more private practice settings in the community.
