Go to Physiotherapy


Physiotherapy is a form of therapy which is directed at problems within the neuro-musculoskeletal domain. This includes painful or difficult movements, as well as a painful or unpleasant posture. A physiotherapist uses their knowledge and skill to determine any problem. After determining the problem, the physiotherapist will choose possible treatments in collaboration with the patient. This could consist of exercises under supervision of the therapist, independent exercising or treatment by the therapist.
