How will Physiotherapy help you?

With more moving parts than most machines, it’s not surprising that your body occasionally feels the strain and objects to all the demands put upon it!! Physiotherapy is the most effective way to treat many of the problems you are experiencing. The basic aim of physiotherapy is to alleviate pain and restore normal posture, movement and function to the body. Physiotherapy includes the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of such problems. A list of conditions commonly treated as well as treatments available can be found here.
