PHYSIOTHERAPY

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of problems with joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves.

 

Physiotherapists will use hands on techniques and provide rehabilitation programmes in order to improve a person’s symptoms.

What does a Physiotherapy treatment involve?

Intially, physiotherapists will spend time discussing the problem with the patient in order to gain a clear understanding of what is going on. Physiotherapists may then complete a range of tests to help gain a clear picture of the problem. 

 

Once the physiotherapist has an understanding of the patients problem, they shall use manual hands on techniques including joint mobilisations and soft tissue release before providing the patient with a rehabilitation programme for them to complete at home.
