Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is the assessment, treatment and diagnosis of disease or injury using physical means, aiming to restore normal, pain-free movement and function.

Physiotherapy at the Clinic

We will make sure that you are seen by the most appropriate member of staff to deal with your problem effectively and can tailor your treatment to incorporate any of our specialist areas (physiotherapy, acupuncture, sports massage and Pilates) into your treatment programme.

Your first appointment will include an in depth assessment to diagnose your problem and create a treatment plan, which may include a range of hands-on manual therapy techniques, electrotherapy (such as laser and ultrasound), and initial exercises, as well as looking at ways to prevent the problem recurring, through relevant advice and progressive exercises.
