What are the 3 Main Types of Physiotherapy?

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

MSK physiotherapy is the most common type of physiotherapy and focuses on the musculoskeletal system, which includes the bones, muscles, and joints. At Perfect Balance Clinic, our MSK physiotherapists can help with conditions such as back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, and post-surgical rehabilitation. They use a variety of techniques such as manual therapy, exercise, and electrotherapy to reduce pain and improve function.

Neurological physiotherapy focuses on the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. At Perfect Balance Clinic, our neurological physiotherapists work with patients who have suffered from conditions such as stroke, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injuries. They use specialized techniques to improve motor function, balance, and coordination.

Cardiothoracic physiotherapy focuses on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. At Perfect Balance Clinic, our cardiothoracic physiotherapists help patients with conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and heart disease. They use breathing exercises, airway clearance techniques, and exercise to improve lung function and cardiovascular health.
