Services: Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential. Physiotherapists work in a wide variety of health settings such as intensive care, mental illness, stroke and neurology, care of the elderly and occupational health and ergonomics. It is far more than just the fixing of musculo-skeletal problems and sports injuries.

You can access a physiotherapist through a variety of settings. Should you wish to access a Physiotherapist for private treatment, please make sure that they are chartered and registered. The online Physio2u directory lists all therapists and the Health Professions Council will also be able to help you find a registered therapist.

Physiotherapeutic treatments are wide and varied and there are far too many to list here. Treatments aim to restore the balance and facilitate the body's own natural healing processes. Therapists will assess each patient individually, taking into consideration any mechanical problems along side any social issues that may be contributing to the presenting problem. A good therapist should be able to give the patient a good explanation as to the mechanism of injury, the structures at fault, and the treatment process, self-help process, and prognosis.

All Chartered Physiotherapists are monitored by the HPC and their training is crucial to your treatment. It will depend on the therapists experience as to the type of treatment that you will receive. Treatments normally last between 4 and 8 sessions depending on the nature of the problem. All should consist of self help treatments to aid recovery.
