About Physiotherapy

physio collage - knee treatment, back physio, neck physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession with a science foundation. Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disability.

Physiotherapists work autonomously, most often as a member of a team with other health or social care professionals.

People are often referred for physiotherapy by doctors or other health and social care professionals. Increasingly, as a result of changes in health care, people are referring themselves directly to physiotherapists without previously seeing any other health care professional.

If you have any questions about how whether physiotherapy would help you, and how to get referred for physiotherapy, or how to refer yourself, please contact us on 01375 375938 and we will be happy the help.
