What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a profession whose aim is to encourage and support the return to normal following illness, surgery, disease or trauma. It can be effective in the treatment of a range of muscle, joint and nerve conditions.

Physiotherapists use a wide range of techniques such as manual therapy and exercise prescription to maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

We can offer expertise in upper limb and hand rehabilitation, pain management programmes and post-surgical recovery. Many of our therapists are also trained in Pilates, Acupuncture and Joint Manipulation, carrying out thorough biomechanical assessments to enhance and optimize function.

We have strong links with many orthopaedic consultants and have an excellent track record in the rehabilitation of upper and lower limb sports injuries. In addition we can offer pre and post natal treatment and advice as well as vertigo and balance rehabilitation with our vestibular specialist.

James Spear Senior Physiotherapist About

James Spear

Senior Physiotherapist

How can I help you improve your health?

I feel that the patient needs to understand what their problem is and how this can be rectified. I endeavour to explain it in a way that people can relate to and then strive to improve that condition/pathology through specific muscular strengthening, rehabilitation and manual therapy.

I endeavour to relate to the patient's goals to function, with a view to maximizing their performance for everyday living or sports-specific performance.
