What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists help people recover after injury, illness or disease. We also help to maintain health and can help prevent disease or injuries. This means that as well as being able to help you recover from an injury or illness we can also provide advice on how to prevent it in the future and stay healthy.
Physiotherapy is a science based profession where all of our treatments are based on up-to-date research. All Chartered Physiotherapists are degree trained and are registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). If you want to check whether your therapist is fully registered, you can do so at Https://www.hpc-uk.org/check/
Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach to healthcare which means that we look at the bigger picture of the physical, psychological, general health, work, fitness and social aspects of you. This is what makes each of our patients unique and challenging and we take pride in finding out exactly what it is that each person wants to gain from treatment rather than just treating the symptoms.

What to expect
Typically, our services would involve a 45 minute initial assessment which provides time to adequately discuss your problem and your goals. We would always aim to provide you with clear information about what is causing your problem, importantly what you can do to help it and what treatments may help in the short and long-term.
The initial assessment also includes some treatment which can take many forms including “hands-on” physio techniques such as mobilisation or manipulation, therapeutic exercise, acupuncture and a variety of others. In some cases, 1 appointment is enough but if required you can progress to either a 45-minute or 30-minute follow up appointment as appropriate allowing further “hands-on” treatment or simply rehabilitation to prevent further injury.
