About Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists are experts in developing and maintaining people`s ability to move and function throughout their lives. With an advanced understanding of how the body moves and what keeps it from moving well, they promote wellness, mobility and independence. They treat and prevent many problems caused by pain, illness, impairments and disease, sport and work related injuries, ageing and long periods of inactivity.

Physiotherapists work with people affected by a wide range of conditions and symptoms, for example:

  • painful conditions such as arthritis, repetitive strain injury, neck and back pain
  • cancer
  • strokes, Parkinson`s disease and spinal cord injury
  • heart problems
  • lung disease
  • trauma, such as road traffic accidents
  • incontinence
