Physiotherapy can help ill, injured or disabled people recover movement and function to regain their full potential. Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach and involves the patient directly in their own care. In most areas, physiotherapists work as part of multidisciplinary teams.
At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapists help patients on wards prepare for and recover from surgery or injury, maintain their independence at home, manage back and neck pain, prepare for childbirth, help with continence and deal with many long-term conditions.
