Physiotherapy uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well being (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, 2002).
Physiotherapy effectively treats pain and stiffness in your joints, muscles, nerves and soft tissues. Our Physiotherapists take the time to discuss all aspects of your problem and perform a thorough physical examination.
Treatment may consist of hands-on therapy to relieve pain and restore movement. You will be taught specific exercises within a treatment session and be given an exercise programme to help correct altered movement patterns, (undo ‘bad habits’ created by pain). Physiotherapy offers a unique approach to ensure that your symptoms improve in the long term by helping you to alter movement patterns which may have caused your problem to linger or re-occur.
