What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that focuses on a holistic, person-centred approach to enhance an individual’s physical, mental, and social wellbeing.

Physiotherapy can help to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotherapists use movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice to maintain health for people of all ages, in managing pain and preventing disease.

Clients are encouraged to take responsibility for their own health through empowerment and self-management. For more information on Physiotherapy visit the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

Who is Physiotherapy for?


Physiotherapists can help people of all different ages, shapes and sizes, to help develop body movement and function. Physiotherapy may help you recover from pain or injury, or assist in the management of a long-term condition.

What should my expectations of Physiotherapy be?


Physiotherapy is all about you and your specific needs. Physiotherapy involves the person in their own care from expectations, goal setting and empowerment.

At your first Physiotherapy appointment you will be asked questions to establish your goals and how best to manage your presentation.

The next part of the appointment is a physical assessment where specific tests are completed to help establish best management. These tests might include moving a limb or completing functional tasks.

From this best-practice treatment is suggested. You may receive treatment within the initial appointment and there will be tasks to do at home such as specific exercises or advice.

Further appointments will focus on treatment and, if exercised-based, it is recommended that gym attire or loose, comfortable clothing and flat shoes are worn.

The frequency and duration of Physiotherapy will be dependent on the presentation, your goals and best practice
