Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the use of physical treatment to facilitate the recovery and rehabilitation of many conditions.

These include soft tissue mobilisation and manipulative techniques, electrotherapy, individual exercise and self help programmes, postural advice and preventative management.

During the initial assessment a past and present medical history is taken.
This is followed by a physical examination. Diagnosis of the problem, with possible causes and an appropriate treatment plan are discussed.

A list of any medication is useful.

Most of our patients are seen at the practice but home visits can be arranged.

We have a range of exercise equipment to loan out to patients free of charge.
