what is physio?

Physiotherapy is a comprehensive treatment that combines ‘hands on’ manual treatment and key exercises to treat a range of muscular, joint and neural problems. Physiotherapy aims to reduce pain and aid repair of damaged tissues by optimizing the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Our ultimate aim is to ensure that you return to your normal routine, be that work or sport, as soon as possible. Research has shown that prompt physiotherapy assessment and treatment may help the recovery of many of the conditions treated. Even if you have been suffering for years, physiotherapy can help to change habits, lifestyle and both general and specific muscle/joint fitness, that may reduce pain.
