Our Physiotherapists are committed to making your treatment experience as comfortable as possible by endeavouring to provide a gentle, caring approach for all our patients. Any concerns you might have simply mention them to the receptionist or, on the day, to your Physiotherapist.
Physiotherapy uses a physical approach to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social health. Physiotherapy is a clinical speciality that helps to address problems with movement, dysfunction and pain. These can arise from musculoskeletal, neurological, respiratory, and chronic disability conditions, or from mental illness and intellectual impairment. Physiotherapists are regulated by statute and belong to one of the largest healthcare professions in the world.

We are fortunate to have Physiotherapists with post graduate experience in:
- Temporo-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ)
- Neurophysiotherapy (including stroke rehabilitation, cerebral palsy, MS, Parkinson’s disease etc.)
- Domiciliary care
- Minor Sports injuries
- Work injuries and occupation-related complaints
Physiotherapy is particularly concerned with patient empowerment, so exercise and self help have a significant role to play – particularly with post surgery, post fracture and neurological cases.
Our Physiotherapists evaluate your condition and will always aim to identify the source of your discomfort or dysfunction. Once evaluated, the therapist can develop a treatment program that will usually involve some form of manual therapy and exercise, as well as other modalities such as ultrasound. You will also receive instruction in a home exercise program as well as education on body mechanics and posture in order to prevent the reoccurrence of your original injury.
Our team of Physiotherapists offer a considerable skills’ base and, we believe, an enthusiastic and pioneering approach to patient care. They also have an excellent working relationship with the clinic’s other therapists.
