Physiotherapy is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty that promotes healthy movement, function and quality of life. Physiotherapists help people affected by pain, illness, injury or disability by skilled use of physical examination techniques, diagnosis and physical intervention(s).

What does Physiotherapy treatment involve?

Physiotherapy treatments promote health and healing of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, brain and nervous system, heart and circulatory system, lungs and respiratory system,

Benefits of Physiotherapy treatments include:
* relief from pain, stiffness and swelling
* optimal functional recovery, whether that be a return to work, family-life, and sporting activities, or avoiding unnecessary hospital admissions, and continuing to live independently in your own home
* improved quality of life, reduced anxiety, improved sleep
* reduced reliance on medications e.g. painkillers
* prevention of relapse, re-injury or loss of function
* improved awareness of the techniques that work best for you and how, when, and where to find them

What can I expect?

The first session usually takes about an hour and starts off with a detailed conversation about the condition you are seeking treatment for, your overall health and lifestyle. This is followed by a physical examination – shorts, layers, or loose comfortable clothing are recommended to enable accurate diagnosis and treatment.

All physiotherapy treatment packages are tailored to the individual, and, if appropriate, will begin during the first session. Examples may include:
* manual therapies such as joint mobilisation, massage, stretching, taping, myofascial release or PNF techniques
* acupuncture for pain relief
* functional rehabilitation following injury, surgery or illness
* specialised neurological / cardiovascular / respiratory rehabilitation
* therapeutic exercise techniques e.g. core stability, yoga therapy and/or mindful movement
falls / injury prevention
* Graded Motor Imagery techniques to ease the persistent and debilitating pain associated with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), Phantom Limb Pain following amputation, or severe chronic back / neck / joint pain.
* education, advice and self-management techniques
