What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a hands-on treatment that focuses on restoring mobility and function. It is used to treat those with acute (short-term) and chronic (long term) injuries and conditions, as well as those wanting to improve their fitness and strength.
Treatment involves the movement of body systems, including nerves, muscles and joints, to restore function and prevent disability. We provide stretching, strengthening exercises, an exercise program, and advice to avoid further problems. Whether you’re recovering from a car accident, a sports injury, or you’re in chronic pain, we can help to improve your symptoms and get you moving again.

You’ll receive hands-on treatment to help you move and function better, improving overall quality of life.
What services do physiotherapists provide?
Physiotherapists provide services such as manual therapy (works with joints and muscles), therapeutic exercises (strengthening and stretching) and functional rehabilitation (helping you to move and function).

This varies from person to person, depending on their circumstances and injury. Generally speaking, though, you can expect each session to last from 30-60 minutes.
How long does it take physiotherapy to work?
Patients suffering from minor injuries can expect to see an improvement in around 2-3 sessions.
The healing process is generally about 6-8 weeks for soft tissue injuries, and chronic injuries can take two months or longer.
Your progress will also depend on many factors, including how well you stick to your treatment plan and whether you keep up with any home exercises.
Does my condition/injury/pain require physiotherapy?
Anyone in pain or discomfort that hinders their function is generally suitable for physiotherapy.
If you have an injury, are recovering from surgery, or live with a chronic condition, physiotherapy can help.
How do physiotherapists become qualified?
Physiotherapists have had to either complete a four-year bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy, or an undergraduate degree in another subject and apply for postgraduate study in physiotherapy.
Add in work placements to gain experience, and you’ve got a qualified physiotherapist.
