Signs You Need Physiotherapy in Darwin

If you are someone who has been struggling with the leftover signs and effects of an old injury that just won’t seem to go away, then you could be an ideal candidate for physiotherapy. On the other side of the coin, physiotherapy should also be seen as the first course of action for someone who is just starting to get over a new injury that was sustained recently. Here at Stepping Stones in Life Therapy Service, we see patients every single day who are dealing with a plethora of different issues and symptoms. With that in mind, here are some of the classic signs that you might need to undergo physiotherapy in Darwin.

Loss Of Balance

Even if you are not experiencing any kind of pain, a loss of balance over time can suggest that there is a physical problem that needs to be addressed. This could be something wrong with your neck, your head, even your eyes, and all of these areas can be approached and treated by a good physiotherapist.

Desk Pain

You might think it is normal, but people should actually have to contend with pain when doing nothing more than sitting at a desk for an extended period of time. You have probably slipped into bad posture habits within even realising it, and a physio can help to heal the damage along with teaching you how to sit properly to prevent a relapse.

Chronic Pain

If you suffer from chronic pain in a part of your body that doctors can’t seem to find an immediate cause for, then a trip to a physio can be a great way to start both elimination and identification of areas of concern. Strengthening your body is the best way to start fighting against unidentified chronic pain.

Mobility Struggles

If you find yourself not being as flexible and mobile as you used to be, whether due to age or a condition such as arthritis, a visit to a physio can help to unlock that movement that for one reason or another has been limited.

So, if you think that physiotherapy is something that you might benefit from, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here in Darwin and Katherine. Don’t be nervous about finally seeking treatment for something that has been bothering you for a long time. There is no reason to suffer in silence when we can do the work to help you feel much better. We very much look forward to being able to ease any struggles that you have been having.
