What does a physiotherapist do?

Physiotherapists use different approaches depending on the treatment need these include:

  • movement and exercise –Whether this is at the clinic or at home we take into account your physical fitness and tailor an exercise and stretching programme to your precise needs
  • manual therapy techniques – where the physiotherapist enhances recovery and healing processes by manually relieving tired muscles, aches and pains and encourage blood flow to an injured part of the body, providing it with new nutrients to enhance recovery and repair.
  • Hydrotherapy – physiotherapy exercises carried out in water to reduce stress on the body or increase resistance
  • other techniques – to help allieviate pain such as heat, cold, and electrotherapy techniques.
