Physiotherapy

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is the treatment and diagnosis of injury, overuse problems, or disease, by non surgical means. A Physiotherapist is also skilled at giving in depth advice on the management of these problems. This may include advice on whether to rest, exercise, apply ice, or use a brace for example. As well as ‘hands on’ techniques, Physiotherapists are often trained in other treatment means such as manipulation, electrotherapy, acupuncture and injection therapy.

What to expect

The Physiotherapist will first need to take a detailed history of the injury or problem. A close examination of the area is then vital, so you may prefer to bring shorts for a knee, hip or back examination.If possible the Physiotherapist will give treatment as well as the assessment on the first visit, but sometimes it is often more important to complete a thorough examination and focus on giving detailed advice, rather than immediately rushing in to treat with ‘hands-on’.
