What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that works with people to identify and maximise their ability to move and function. We use a range of skills to provide pain relief, aid healing and rehabilitation for most surgical and medical conditions. Physiotherapy is an appropriate choice of treatment for a wide variety of muscle, joint and nerve conditions.
All our physiotherapists are focused on providing you with the most effective and appropriate treatment, whether you need a short course of treatment or an extended rehabilitation programme. This may require a change in lifestyle and/or continued exercise programme, our physiotherapy team will guide you.
