What is Physiotherapy???

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that emphasises the use of physical approaches in the prevention and treatment of disease and disability. It treats injury without the use of drugs and by correcting and improving the body’s natural healing mechanisms. To complement traditional therapeutic treatments such as massage, joint manipulation/mobilisations, we also offer specifically designed exercise programmes for you to manage your condition and enhance your rehabilitation.

What do WE do???

All appointments last around 30-45 minutes. The first appointment will involve a series of questions designed to determine the nature of your condition. We will then undertake some manual clinical tests to further determine your condition which may include sensation, reflexes, muscle strength and length tests and joint ranges of movement both active and passive. A potential diagnosis will then be offered followed by liaising with you regarding treatment options offered by Chartered Physiotherapists including and possibly a tailored home exercise program.
