Physiotherapy Care

Physiotherapy is the treatment of a wide range of conditions and injuries to the body through the use of various forms of passive mobilization, manipulations, soft tissue massage, electrotherapy and exercises. At Physiocare, our physiotherapist is highly skilled and experienced in a comprehensive range of treatment techniques to help you overcome your pain.

Most patients are unsure as to the cause of their pain and what treatment they require – this is what we will tell you. With every patient, we carry out a complete assessment of the injury or problem, designed to understand the cause first and then the program of corrective treatment and preventative measures.

As a patient, whether you need a couple of sessions or an extensive rehabilitation program, our highly qualified physiotherapist will tailor a course of treatment specifically to you. This will consist of a combination of hands-on treatment, electrotherapy and exercises.

We will teach you the exercise programs and pain prevention techniques which you will undertake at home or work designed to allow you to take control of your condition, speed up your recovery and, most importantly, prevent any re occurrence.

We understand the implications of not getting the correct treatment for an injury and will always refer you to our network of other healthcare professionals and specialists if needed.
