What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is the treatment of physical problems caused by accidents, illness and ageing. Treatment is mainly focused on physical problems that affect the muscles, bones, heart, circulation and lungs.

Physiotherapy helps to alleviate pain, restore normal movement and function and return the body to its natural balanced state without the use of medication or drugs. Central to this is the patient taking an active role in realising the social, cultural and psychological factors that will help them to be as independent and active as possible.
