What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is the conservative treatment to help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. We strive to maintain health and wellbeing while helping patients manage pain and prevent disease.
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession that helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work or sport and remain independent for as long as possible
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness of their condition and participation in their treatment.
