Physiotherapists are highly trained to treat and prevent a wide range of painful conditions and injuries. Treatment sessions include the application of evidence-based manual techniques that improve and correct the body’s natural healing mechanisms. These techniques include mobilisation, manipulation, massage and acupuncture. Alongside manual therapy a specific personalised exercise programme is prescribed to improve and maintain the body’s function and performance.
