Physiotherapy uses physical techniques, such as exercise and manual treatments (for example, manipulation and massage) to help increase your mobility. Physiotherapy is often used to treat or relieve conditions affecting your muscles, bones and joints or after an injury.
It can also be used to help you recover after surgery or to improve your range of motion (how much and in which directions a joint can move) and strengthen your muscles.
Is Physiotherapy right for you?
If you lead an active life, or suffer from muscular aches and pains, you know how frustrating it can be when injury or pain stops you doing what you enjoy most. Not only does exercise affect your physical fitness and mobility but it can actually improve state of mind, meaning that being unable to keep to your usual fitness routine can impact you mentally too.
