Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses and treats individuals with a variety of conditions, to improve their physical function.
The aim of physiotherapy treatment is to enhance independence with functional and sporting activities following injury, illness, or ageing. Physiotherapists use a combination of treatment techniques to improve mobility and increase muscle strength, range of movement, balance and posture.
Physiotherapists are involved in helping people of all ages from children to the elderly, focussing on an individual's physical function identifying and addressing problems affecting joints, muscles, nerves and soft tissues.
A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.
Physiotherapy is under-pinned by scientific research and continuously reviews and evaluates its practices and procedures in order to offer effective treatments to patients.
All of our experienced Chartered Physiotherapists are Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered and members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
Physiotherapists must be registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) to work in the UK. The HCPC acts as a regulator for most health professions. Only registered professionals can call themselves a physiotherapist.
