Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is the treatment of disorders that affect how you move – how your muscles and joints work together. Whether it’s your feet, ankles and legs, your hands, arms and shoulders, or your backs and necks – an injury that makes it painful or difficult to move can have a big impact on your life. At Extend Physiotherapy, we feel that effective Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is the key to recovery.

Physiotherapists are specialists in the management of movement disorders. We will talk with you, observe your movement and use a hands-on assessment to evaluate your problem. We will take the time to explain your diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. This includes all joints – even hands and feet.
