The prime purpose of Physiotherapy is to restore function, activity and independence. The aim is to prevent injury or illness and provide appropriate advice, information and treatment that is individually tailored to the patient’s needs.
Your therapy will include "hands on" treatment, advice on how you can help yourself and where appropriate, exercises that you can do between treatment sessions.
Following a detailed assessment and examination of your condition, diagnosis will follow together with the most effective treatment. This will take into account your lifestyle, leisure activities and general health, and will be reviewed throughout the treatment process. The therapy will include advice on self-treatment and, where appropriate, exercises that you carry out between treatment sessions.
The Chartered Society Of Physiotherapy (CSP), circulates evidence-based guidelines to ensure that all its members throughout the country apply equally high standards in their practice.
