Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession with a foundation in science. The range of work is varied and involves working with people to promote their own health and well-being. Physiotherapists help to restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability and also aim to relieve pain.

Treatment
commonly involves soft tissue massage and release, joint mobilisation, rehabilitation/ exercise/ pilates programmes, postural correction, kinesiotaping techniques, functional movement analysis, laser therapy and dry needling.
In addition we provide personalised exercise programmes, ergonomic advice and further injury prevention strategies.

Sports Rehabilitation involves postural analysis combined with extensive knowledge of sport-specific biomechanics. Treatment includes soft tissue and spinal techniques, laser, taping and individualised exercise programmes.

Acupuncture is becoming an accepted treatment in hospitals and pain clinics for a wide range of health problems and the National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE) recommends considering acupuncture as a treatment option for persistant lower back pain, chronic tension-type headaches and migraines. Other common uses include the treatment of arthritic joint pain and postoperative pain.
