    Physiotherapists are trained to analyze the movement and understanding the biomechanics of movement. We are able to identify what is limiting your mobility which may be muscular, neuro, or joint related.
    From this we can devise a treatment strategy and plan to get you back on track with your goals.
    If your goal is for mobility, we are also trained in working towards building up your mobility so that you get back on your feet.

    Physiotherapists are experts in getting people back to full physical function.  However, you must remember there are all differents types of physio.  I would recommend active treatment where you are shown specific exercises and things to do.  Sometimes, passive physio treatment is given and this will probably give you temporary relief if any. 

    So seek a therapist trained in Active Treatment.  I would recommend a MDT (McKenzie Method) therapist because there philosophy is showing you how to get rid of the pain and stop it from coming back.
