Physiotherapists are principally concerned with the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of muscular and spinal disorders.
At Echuca Moama Physiotherapy, we utilise our knowledge of the normal movement and function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments to determine if they are performing effectively.
The use of manual (hands on) treatments including joint mobilisation and manipulation, massage, targeted exercises and advice aims to restore normal movement and function.
Physiotherapy can provide benefit to a range of people, from elite athletes to weekend warriors, from manual workers to older persons coping with the ageing process.
