What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists combine their knowledge, skills and approach to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different ‘systems’ of the body.
In particular they treat neuromuscular (brain and nervous system), musculoskeletal (soft tissues, joints and bones), cardiovascular and respiratory systems (heart and lungs and associated physiology).
How can Physiotherapy help?

Issues of this nature include prolapsed discs, degeneration of joints and ligaments, sciatica, lumbago, stiff / painful neck and/or shoulders as well as referred arm and leg pains
Headaches & Migraines
We look at the cause of your headache and treat them problems accordingly.
To correct postural problems and muscle imbalances.
Physiotherapy can alleviate issues including arthritis, rheumatism (and associated disorders), injuries as well as pain, swelling and stiffness in joints throughout the body (e.g. shoulders / elbows / hips / wrists / knees / ankles).
