Physiotherapy

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. The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.

Treatments include: Soft tissue therapy, Joint manipulation, Joint mobilisation, Strapping and Kinesio taping, Core strengthening, Home exercise programme, Bio-mechanical assessment, Advice and Acupuncture.

A treatment session includes a thorough assessment to accurately identify and diagnose a problem and importantly it's cause. Advice and analysis as to the cause of the problem is key to successfully aiding recovery and not just treatment to manage a symptom. 

Commonly treated problems are: 

  • Shoulder pain including frozen shoulder 

  • Neck pain

  • Whiplash

  • Tendon injuries

  • Repetitive strain injuries

  • Muscular imbalances

  • Muscular pain

  • Fractures

  • Knee pain
