What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession which helps people affected by injury, illness and disability. At Healthcare we like to treat the person as a whole addressing the injury as well as each person’s general lifestyle, health and fitness. By doing this we strive to get to the root cause of your problem and help eliminate contributing factors allowing you to return to sport or to simply fully enjoy your normal activities in daily life.
The physiotherapist will aim to relieve pain, restore range of movement and normal movement patterns to allow full resolution of your issue or if this is not possible to help alleviate and manage your symptoms. Through education, advice and exercise the physiotherapist will also provide you with the knowledge to continue with an individually tailored home exercises alongside a management programme to help prevent recurrence of the injury.
