Physiotherapy

 


Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession, regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP). They are concerned with human function, and movement and maximising potential.

Our specialised physiotherapists at 'First Physio' will provide individualised physiotherapy treatment tailored to your needs. Our physiotherapists are experienced at treating both children and adults with a wide variety of conditions.

Physiotherapists are experts in body movement. They understand how muscles and joints work and why injuries occur, helping individuals with a variety of conditions, improve their physical function. Physiotherapists use a combination of treatment techniques to improve mobility and increase muscle strength, range of movement, balance and posture.

Chartered physiotherapists are trained to a high clinical standard, and have the skills to assess, diagnose and treat musculoskeletal injuries. Your problem may only require some expert advice and information, or you may need to undergo a course of treatment designed to relieve pain and promote healing but most importantly stop the problem returning.

All Physiotherapists at First Physio are Chartered and registered with 'The Health Care and Professions Council'. This means you are guaranteed to see someone properly qualified who is governed by a professional code of conduct and is covered by professional liability insurance.

We work closely and have links with other health professionals such as occupational therapists, podiatrists, GP’s and consultants to provide the best possible treatment. We work closely with both private and NHS colleagues.
