What is Physiotherapy and what can it do for me?
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession which takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, helping people affected by injury, illness or disability through assessment, evaluation, education, advise and rehabilitation. At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment. You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy can helps with a complaint from back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical conditions such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event. Physiotherapists aim to help maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain, injuries and also in prevention of injuries.
What to expect when you visit?
During your first visit to Physiotherapy we will assess you using a detailed history-taking of your current complaint and conduct a clinical examination involving some specific physical tests & measures to establish a diagnosis. From this, an appropriate treatment programme will be implemented to rehabilitate you back to full function, based on best evidence based Practice. Part of the treatment will involve educating patients about injuries and providing you with the necessary tools and home exercise programmes to help you self-manage your complaint/ injury on a day to day basis. Patient will be given a hand-out or if you have access to email a rehabilitation programme can be accessed this way.
Our clinic is completely based on ground floor level allowing easy access for those with mobility impairments. There is full wheelchair accessibility with free parking available on site.
