A Chartered Physiotherapist treats injury and disease by correcting and improving the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, without the use of drugs or medication unless prescribed by a doctor.
The modern Physiotherapist uses a wide range of skills including manipulation, mobilisation, massage and exercises, often aided by the use of sophisticated electronic and electrical apparatus – all designed to help in the relief of pain and to promote healing.
Chartered Physiotherapists will not only treat the problem but, by spending time with the patient, will often be able to show the patient how to help prevent the problem happening again.
