Helping you back to health


Who are we?

Physiotherapists are highly trained Allied Health Professionals, recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently. We’re trained to screen for medical conditions and will advise you if you need to see another health professional such as your GP.

We help to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. We can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.

We take a holistic approach that involves you directly in your own care.

We work together to help you


What does Physiotherapy involve?

Physiotherapists consider the body as a whole.
Some of the main approaches used by physiotherapists include:

• education and advice – we can give general advice about things that can affect your daily lives, such as posture and correct lifting or carrying techniques to help prevent injuries

• movement, tailored exercise and physical activity advice – exercises may be recommended to improve your general health and mobility, and to strengthen specific parts of your body

• manual therapy – where the physiotherapist uses their hands to help relieve pain and stiffness, and to encourage better movement of the body.

We help you back to health
