What is Physiotherapy?

 

Physiotherapy

 

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

We help people affected by injury through movement, manual therapy, acupuncture, taping, exercise and advice. We help to maintain health and facilitate recovery, enabling you to return to your normal activites.

 

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a 'whole person' approach to health and wellbeing, which includes a patient's general lifestyle.

At the core is the patient's involvement in their own care and recovery.

 

Physiotherapy can help anyone of any age, whether this is with back pain or sudden injury, after an operation or to ease niggling pains that are stopping you doing what you want to do.

 

Following an initial assessment with your physiotherapist (see 'What to Expect' page on this website) you will discuss and agree on a treatment plan. This will consist of sessions to ease your symptoms but will also involve looking at long-term maintenance and prevention of further injuries. Most patients benefit from 4-6 sessions. In between sessions you will be given exercises and advice to enhance your recovery. You will be able to ask any questions you may have at your sessions.
