Cilliers & Swart Physiotherapist
Physiotherapists are human body mechanics. Similar to how you would service your car, we understand the way your body is put together and what is necessary for it to perform at its best. Our team of Physiotherapists are highly experienced at dealing with any type of pain, ache, niggle, stiffness, or weakness through a process of clinical reasoning. This process helps to establish the structure in your body that might be causing pain.
Whether you are suffering from a pulled muscle, overloaded tendon, dislocated joint, sprained ligament or a pinched nerve – you just have to point where the pain is and we’ll investigate. We will talk you through our process of stressing and testing these muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints or nerves to get a clear picture of the problem. After testing, we explain to you our findings and explain our diagnosis of the problem.
After diagnosis, we will guide you through a process to restore your body’s tissue to normal. This can take the form of injury treatment, exercises, modifying your activity, etc. – there are endless options how to treat a problem. We use the newest technologies (machines), techniques and research studies to give you the best possible treatment for your specific problem.
Physiotherapist schedule one hour sessions to give enough time to cover the assessment, diagnosis and treatment.
The physiotherapist will firstly ask you detailed questions about the pain, then we will perform tests and ask you more specifics about the pain and feedback what you feel during certain movements. We will touch, stress and move certain structures to test where the problem might be coming from.
During the assessment process we explain the results of the tests we are performing and facilitate an understanding of our diagnosis of the problem.
We will then continue to treat the tissue according to what’s necessary for repair. Physiotherapist use their hands, machines, movements, and many other types of treatment to repair soft tissue. The physiotherapist will give you instructions to follow and warn you of dangers that might have caused the problem.
It is very important that you understand what is going on in your own body. We are here to guide you through the process of healing. Our patients are like family to us, be part of it.
