For Your Reference
Osteoarthritis of the knee can be debilitating - affecting your ability to do normal every day activities - but it doesn't have to be this way. Physiotherapy has been shown to be an effective first line of treatment for osteoarthritis and may help prevent the need for surgery.
WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapists help you get the most out of life. They help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, increase mobility and prevent further injury. They listen to your needs to tailor a treatment specific to your condition. As first contact practitioners, you don’t need a doctor's referral to see a physiotherapist. Physiotherapists, doctors, and other health professionals will often work as part of a team to plan and manage treatment for a specific condition.
