What is Physiotherapy?
Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy involves the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of injuries involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, connective tissue, cartilage and nerves. Physiotherapy helps to restore and maintain the health of people of all ages who are effected by illness, injury or disability.

The team are equipped to help with a wide variety of different musculoskeletal injuries such as post surgical rehabilitation, sports injuries, injuries from activities of daily living through aches and pains of your normal daily life.
What will Physiotherapy involve?
Our practitioners will spend time taking a detailed history of your present complaint along with a full medical history. This information will enable the clinician to form an initial impression of what could be the issue. Following this you will be asked to take your joints through the ranges you are able to complete along with testing your strength in different areas. The therapist will also perform clinical tests to give them a clearer picture of what the diagnosis of your issue is. Finally your practitioner will use a number of treatment modalities including joint mobilisations, exercise prescription and soft tissue massage.
