Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function, movement and maximising the potential of individuals.

It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking into account variations in health status.

It is science based, committed to extending, applying and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery.

It is an autonomous profession where practitioners make their own clinical judgements and treatment choices. However, we are very keen on promoting Person Centred Care, which means, when accessing our services, you will be listened to, encouraged to ask questions and to contribute to planning your care. This is essential to help us understand your expectations and to enable you to achieve the best outcome.

In particular, Physiotherapists treat Cardiovascular & Respiratory (heart & lungs and associated physiology), Musculoskeletal & Orthopaedic (bone, joint & muscle) and Neurological (brain & nervous system), symptoms in all age groups in a variety of settings. On this website you will find links to some of these different areas of physiotherapy. Please click on these to find out more information, what we offer and what you can expect. There will also be some advice and self-help information available which may allow you to manage your particular concern independently without seeking our support.
