Physiotherapists specialise in the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal, respiratory and neurological pain and dysfunction.

Physiotherapy is a 3-year university degree and entails over 1000 hours of supervised clinical placement time within the NHS. Upon graduating, the qualified physiotherapist must join 'The Health and Care Professions Council' (HCPC) and commit to ongoing professional development and reflective practice.

In many physiotherapy sessions, you can expect a mix of types of therapy that are the most effective for your current ailments. During your first session, it will primarily consist of a general physiotherapy assessment. This is a key stage of the overall process where our qualified physiotherapist will ask about what brings you in and assess your current range of motion and motor skills.

From there, they can make the right assessment and treatment plan for you to have the fastest and most optimized recovery. Every session going forward will include education and advice. As you come in for more physiotherapy sessions, your physiotherapist will be able to provide refreshed guidance and a review of your overall progress and what needs to have more work on.

Then there's exercise therapy. Your physiotherapist will show you specific types of exercise to do and prescribe you, as the patient, to do them a set amount of time each day. This exercise therapy is meant to improve flexibility, strength, and endurance.

Manual therapy can be a technique that is used where the physiotherapist will mobilize joints and muscles to get them moving again. They will also manipulate soft tissues to help with pain reduction and improve how well you're able to use those areas.
