What is a Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are one of the leading health professionals in the UK after Doctors and Nurses. They treat people of all ages for injuries and a wide range of health related conditions. Physiotherapists undertake a high level of training to understand how the body works to be able to assess poor movement and function and develop strategies for treatment.

Physiotherapists are experts at prescribing individualised exercise programmes, as well as using a range of manual therapy techniques to help treat the problem.

How Can Physiotherapy Help Me?

Whether you have had an injury, an operation, you have unexplained pain or you would like to prevent pain occurring then Physiotherapy can help you.

I endeavour to perform thorough assessments because I believe it is imperative to find and treat the root cause of the pain in order to prevent reoccurrence. I work with my patients to create tailored treatment plans to help get them back on the road to recovery and reach their goals. I believe in educating my patients to help them understand why their aches and pains are occurring and to promote healthier postural and health habits.
