What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
Physiotherapists can help people through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and well-being, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.

You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical condition such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event.

Physiotherapists can help to provide relief for a number of conditions including:
·         Neurological (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's)
·         Neuromusculoskeletal (back pain, whiplash associated disorder, sports injuries, arthritis)
·         Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)
·         Respiratory (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis).

Physiotherapy is available at our Shefford clinic priced at £35 per session.
