The aim of physiotherapy is to help restore normal physical, psychological and social well-being following injury, illness or disease.
At your first appointment we will assess your problem by asking you some specific questions then check things such as posture, range of movement, function and soft tissue condition. We will then discuss your diagnosis and form a plan for hands-on treatments combined with exercise therapy and self-management advice.
Our treatments are listed below with a brief explanation. We tailor treatments to suit the individual needs of our patients. Incorporating exercises and advice for home gives patients the confidence to be part of the solution to their problem.
