Why you need our help?
The top reason why healing takes longer than expected is not knowing what’s the real problem. This is the core reason why people neglect their pain and just try to ignore it. Unfortunately this creates more problems as surrounding tissues in an injured site spills over to involve other structures. For example, a minor muscle tear starts affecting a nearby nerve or joint, and you’ll feel that its actually getting worse (sharper pain, larger area, even more stiff).
This leaves the tissue to fend for itself, leading to abuse and overload on structures that’s not supposed to be taking so much strain. In the end you’ll end up with chronic compensation patterns or even chronic pain. A physiotherapist’s role is to assess and diagnose all the factors relating to your problem. Clearly defining the scope & severity of your problem. We’ll develop a treatment and management plan after we have given you a diagnosis.
At Cilliers & Swart Physiotherapy, we help you understand what is going on in your body and how we can help relieve your pain. While physiotherapy can be effective, we realize there are some cases it’s past the point of no return. In these cases where our physiotherapy treatment isn’t the appropriate for your problem, we will refer you to some of South Africa’s leading Medical Specialists and Allied Health Professionals.
