Our Chartered Physiotherapists are musculo-skeletal specialists who use their detailed knowledge of how the body, its joints, muscles, nerves and other soft tissues work in order to assess the cause of pain or injury.
Physiotherapy treatments aim to promote healing and restore normal function and movement using a variety of different techniques.
Typically, these may include soft tissue mobilisation, manual therapy, electrotherapy modalities, acupuncture and specific exercise programmes and education to improve your strength, flexibility, general health and restoration of function.
Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession and all our physiotherapists are Members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
To maintain registration and professional competence, the CSP and HCPC expect members’ to fulfil the regulator’s requirement for continuing professional development on an annual basis.
This enables members to work safely, effectively and legally within their particular scope of practice at any point in time.
It is not necessary to see your doctor before being assessed by a physiotherapist but, if you intend using health insurance, please check with your provider as some do require a medical referral.
