Musculoskeletal physiotherapy

staff looking at patient

Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury and disease by enhancing the body’s own natural healing mechanisms.

Physiotherapists take a holistic approach to healthcare supporting self-management of common conditions promoting independence whilst considering all aspects of the patient’s lifestyle, work and leisure and how the condition may be prevented in the future.

In effect, Physiotherapists teach people to help themselves to better health, so whatever your age or condition, Physiotherapists are able to get you back to your best
