What is physiotherapy and what does a Physiotherapist do?
Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce risk of injury or illness in the future.
So, Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them remain independent for as long as possible.
Physiotherapists complete a 3-year degree in which they combine theoretical learning and clinical practice with 1,250 clinical hours in work-based settings. They work across all aspects of health and social care both in hospitals and community settings.
Our Senior Physiotherapist will provide a comprehensive assessment and subsequent treatment plan for musculoskeletal injuries. The treatment will be a combination of education, hands on therapy and targeted exercise programmes to ensure a well-rounded approach to injury management and prevention.
