What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is primarily concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of injuries of soft tissue (such as muscles, tendons and ligaments), bones and nerves.

Damage to one of these structures may result in pain, pins and needles/numbness, swelling, bruising, stiffness or weakness. The Physiotherapist’s role is to establish which structure has been damaged and how. By understanding what caused the injury we can focus on treating it and prevent the injury from recurring.

Following a thorough assessment and diagnosis, there will be a discussion of your treatment goals and appropriate treatment plan put into action. This may include: joint and soft tissue mobilisation and manipulation; taping of joints and injured tissues; acupuncture, exercise prescription; Clinical Pilates and sports specific rehabilitation.

As a routine part of our assessments we include a biomechanical assessment, which includes posture correction.

Our Physiotherapists are Chartered (CSP), and members of the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council).
