Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. This is achieved through various methods including movement and exercise, manual therapy (hands on), education and advice.
Physiotherapists look to enable people of all ages to maintain their health, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
It is a science-based profession which bases decisions upon scientific evidence and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, EMPOWERMENT and participation in their treatment.
Physiotherapists look to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible
