What do we treat? 

Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. 
They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible. 
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and well being, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment. 
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical condition such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event. 
Physiotherapy is a degree-based health care profession. Physiotherapists use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, 
such as:

Stroke Rehabilitation 
A stroke is caused when a blood clot or haemorrhage in the brain causes the blood supply to a part of the brain to cut off. This is a very serious medical condition and it needs to be treated immediately. 
If you have recently had a stroke, you will have a better chance of a good recovery if you commence physiotherapy rehabilitation as soon as possible after returning home from the hospital. You will find that your movement will be affected and you may experience numbness or weakness in your arm and/or leg or face. The affected side may feel very different, with the limbs feeling heavy and possibly painful and you may also have issues with your posture and balance. 
Physiotherapy is an important part of your recovery and it will help you learn how to use both sides of your body again and gain back as much muscle strength and range of movement as possible. At Bodyworks we have a neuro-physiotherapist who specialises in strokes, Lois Bloomfield, who can help you regain your mobility and independence. 
A stroke can have a huge impact on someone's life and it can affect them in many different ways. Lois is very aware that rehabilitation for stroke survivors is very personal to each individual and so aims for her assessments and treatments to reflect this. Lois can also advise your family or your carer on how to help you with mobility on a daily basis.
