What is Physiotherapy











Physiotherapy is a multi-faceted profession whose aim is to encourage and support the return to normal following illness, surgery, disease or trauma. This is often described as 'rehabilitation'. So whether your problem is a sprained ankle, back pain, a stroke, chest problems, women's health, injury at work or many other different conditions, there will be a physiotherapist to help you get better.

Physiotherapists will not only treat the problem but by spending time with the patient will often be able to show the patient how to minimise the impact of their problem and to help prevent the problem happening again.

Physiotherapists use a number of different techniques including manipulation and mobilisation, massage, hydrotherapy, exercise programmes, electrotherapy (eg. ultrasound) and in some cases acupuncture. Reassurance and education about a problem also gives patients the confidence to get back to normal activities quickly.
