Physiotherapy Explained1st December 2019
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy was established many years ago to support the National Health Service, with Physiotherapists training in the many necessary ‘rotations’ for both inpatient and outpatient care. All Physiotherapists are degree qualified and are HCPC registered health care professionals. Across the profession, Physios treat people of all ages from newborns to the very old. They take a holistic approach and involve the patient closely in their own care.
In private practice such as here at the Rehab Hub individual Physios tend to work mainly with musculoskeletal problems and may also develop an individual specialism such as Vestibular Rehabilitation (provided here at the Rehab Hub), all supported by a broad knowledge base and medical background/experience.
Here are some of the areas in which our Physiotherapist may be able to help you:
- Rehabilitate back, joint and muscle injuries and dysfunction
- Work with postural and balance issues, including Vestibular disorders
- Improve chronic or arthritic pain
- Prepare for or recover from surgery
- Recover from accidents, including whiplash
- Improve discomfort from work-related issues and provide ergonomic advice.
