What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is by definition physical therapy in the form of movement, exercise, manual mobilisation and specific treatment modalities which help to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Supplemented with home exercise programmes, education and advice the rehabilitation pathway ensures that  the patient is able to return to work, sport and an active lifestyle, therefore becoming independent as quickly and safely as possible.

Why choose Physio-4u?

At Physio-4u our professional, experienced, efficient and friendly approach allows us to assess your injury and ensure the very best tailor-made, individual programme for your treatment.

Our service provides effective recovery and management for patients of all ages, body types and fitness levels dealing with acute and chronic symptoms of pain, stiffness, swelling, neural pain and associated symptoms of pins and needles, numbness and inflammation.

Treatment modalities including mobilisations, frictions, trigger points, manipulation, massage, taping and strapping, ultrasound therapy , TENS, interferential therapy, acupuncture and vestibular rehabilitation can all be used to facilitate, maintain and improve recovery together with progressive, specific exercises.

All prescribed exercises are aimed to help enhance your own recovery by maintaining and improving the progress that you gain during ‘hands on’ physiotherapy sessions. This will keep you as active as possible without causing further damage to the injured part of the body and allow you to return to previous levels of activity – or beyond. Exercise programmes are varied so that they can be done at home, work or the gym, with or without equipment. They are specific to your condition and will be adjusted regularly to create a new yet individually specific routine.

In summary, Physio-4u takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and well-being, supported by the latest treatment and rehabilitation modalities with science-based support.
