Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.
They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
Techniques that physiotherapists may use include exercise advice, joint mobilisations, soft tissue techniques, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and ultrasound therapy.
Your physiotherapist would first undertake a detailed assessment of you. This would involve questioning you about your problem and your general health, life style and expectations. From this they would formulate what clinical tests they would need to do to further understand your problem.
Following your assessment they would discuss the treatment options with you.
We offer home visits by arrangement for those people who would find it difficult to come to our clinic.
