Physiotherapy  

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. 
At the core, is the patient’s 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.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.
The aim is to improve and maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. 
Physiotherapy helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.
