Physiotherapy is a therapeutic healthcare profession concerned with improving the way you move, and enhancing your quality of life, by giving you the most suitable treatment for an injury or condition. If you suffer from back or neck pain, a sports injury, arthritis – in fact any joint or muscle problem – Physiotherapy can help relieve your pain and get you moving again.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through manual therapy, movement and exercise, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping older patients to manage pain and prevent to remain independent for as long as possible. The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a person centred approach to health and well being, which includes the patients general lifestyle. At the core is the patients involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with sports injuries, back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical conditions such as asthma, and help prepare for a sporting event.
