diseasesPhysiotherapy helps people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.  It is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.

At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
