Musculoskeletal physiotherapy

staff looking at patient

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

We take a holistic approach, supporting self-management of common conditions and promoting independence. We consider all aspects of the patient’s lifestyle, work and leisure and how we might be able to prevent their condition in the future.

In this way, 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

Common treatment options we use are exercise, manual therapy, postural correction and advice. Physiotherapy may benefit conditions and and symptoms including:

  • joint and muscle symptoms
  • back and neck symptoms
  • rehabilitation after fractures or orthopaedic surgery
  • soft tissue injuries
  • whiplash
  • sports injuries
