Physiotherapy is a treatment that aims to improve the way your joints and muscles work. It can help to maximise your movement, flexibility, coordination and strength,
and to optimise your body's normal functioning and physical ability. Physiotherapy is also used to help people recover from illnesses and injuries,
and to help treat long-term health conditions and disabilities. Your care may be different from what we describe here as it will be designed to
meet your personal needs. However we intend to treat a wide range of conditions including:
Acute injuries or pain (pain that starts suddenly) in your muscles, bones and joints - for example, back pain, neck pain or knee injuries.
Chronic (long-term) musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis or osteoporosis.
Conditions that cause fluid to build up on your lungs - for example, cystic fibrosis.
Conditions such as Parkinson's disease, stroke or multiple sclerosis (MS), which affect your nervous system.
Women's health conditions such as incontinence.
Recovery after bed rest or surgery.
