The World Health Organization (WHO) defined it in 1958 as "the art and science of treatment through therapeutic exercise, heat, cold, light, water, massage and electricity ".
The physiotherapist's job is, therefore, to develop, restore and maintain optimal health. physiotherapy Newcastle is an integral part of all areas of health and well-being and includes physical, psychological, emotional and social factors. It is a science-based profession, with a holistic approach that takes into account the patient's lifestyle.
You can benefit from the benefits of physiotherapy at any time in your life: in case of back pain, during sudden injuries, to control long-term medical conditions such as asthma, in preparation for childbirth and also during the sports activities.

  • Geriatric physiotherapy: it focuses on limiting the effects of aging. It is intended for people who are at risk of injuring themselves after a fall, those whose state of health limits their mobility and their ability to perform activities, or even sick seniors who need hospital care or rehabilitation after surgery. It also treats fractures, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, overweight and diabetes.
  • Orthopedic physiotherapy: it concerns people suffering from disorders or dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system (concretely, everything that allows you to move). It can help with better movement with less pain. Some of the conditions she treats include back pain, plantar fasciitis, muscle tension, sprains, postoperative rehabilitation of orthopedic surgeries, chronic pain and carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Neurological physiotherapy: this includes the evaluation and treatment of people with movement problems related to a disease or injury to the nervous system. The most commonly treated conditions are stroke, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury, and tumors of the central and peripheral nervous systems.
  • Cardiovascular and pulmonary physiotherapy: it is aimed at people of all ages at risk or who have been diagnosed with cardiovascular or pulmonary impairment. The most commonly treated diseases are chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), acute and chronic respiratory disorders, diabetes, vascular disease, arterial disease, cystic fibrosis, hypertension, and heart disease.
  • pediatric physiotherapy: it provides support for infants and children with disabilities. It mainly treats spina bifida, neuromuscular disorders, orthopedic diseases or injuries, pulmonary disorders, brain injuries, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and autism spectrum disorders.

 physiotherapy Newcastle techniques

 Some of the main techniques of physiotherapy are:
  • Therapeutic massage: the mobilization of soft tissue can help relax the muscles and reduce swelling in certain areas. It is an effective treatment to relieve the pain associated with sports injuries. Massage also promotes blood and lymphatic circulation and reduces inflammation of the tissues around the joints.
  • Electrical stimulation: the physiotherapy Newcastle delivers an electrical current to the affected area using electrodes attached to the skin to relieve pain. The electrodes shorten the muscles. This technique can be used with laser and ultrasound therapy.
  • Cryotherapy and thermotherapy: the application of heat or cold can be useful in the event of muscular stiffness. Thermotherapy includes the application of warm compresses and cryotherapy may include the application of ice packs or a massage with ice.

  • improve movement.
  • to recover better after an injury or stroke.
  • to prevent possible falls.
  • improve balance.
