Physiotherapy

Personalised help for adults and children

Physiotherapists help people of all ages affected by injury, illness or disability to live healthy, active lives.  Keeping active is a vital part of maintaining good health.  But no matter what your age pain, stiffness, restriction or injury can stop you exercising and make daily activities difficult.

Physiotherapists can assess, diagnose and treat a range of movement problems and health conditions.

After a thorough assessment, treatment may include:

  • Tailored exercises
  • Manual therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Stretching
  • Education and advice
