What We Do

Physiotherapy deals with human function and movement. It uses physical approaches to provide, maintain and restore physical wellbeing taking into account individual health and abilities.

We assess, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate your condition aiming to maximise your potential.

We work in partnership with you to set treatment goals to optimise your function, ability and potential.

We can teach coping strategies for anxiety, pain and stress, and give advice on specialist groups.

We work closely with other agencies and can address all your needs by referring you to the various social work departments, voluntary groups and charities that can provide other advice, equipment, support and information.

Self referrals can be made via 0800 917 9390.
