Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the physical approach to promote, maintain and restore physical problems. We use a variety of techniques to help you perform the basic physical activities required in everyday life, and the specific activities important to your work and leisure.

We will work with you to facilitate your recovery and help to prevent further problems by applying the following four treatment phases:

  • Acute symptom management - we will help you to gain control of your symptoms in the early stages;
  • Recovery phase - we will devise a programme to help you recover and return to your normal activities;
  • Addressing the starting point of the problem - we will consider the starting point factors and help you to address any problems that can predispose you to future recurrences;
  • Maintenance programme - we will ensure that you know the strategies to employ in future to maintain your flexibility, strength and general fitness levels appropriate to your work and leisure.
