Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession allied to the medical profession.
A physiotherapist uses the concept of movement and balance to maximise the functional potential of the patient.
Physiotherapists are concerned with muscular balance and use various techniques and exercises to achieve this. They help to restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone has been affected by injury or illness. They use similar principles to restore balance to those suffering with a disability or developmental delay.
Physiotherapy in this musculoskeletal (soft tissue, joints and bones) setting involves working with people to help them promote their own health and well being, and to avoid recurrence of injury
Patients can be referred for physiotherapy by doctors or other healthcare professionals.
However, you can also refer yourself directly to a physiotherapist without previously seeing any other healthcare professional (though some healthcare insurers may stipulate a GP referral prior to your physiotherapy).
All of the PhysioEdge physiotherapists are chartered (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy registered - CSP) and state registered, (Health Professions Council registered - HPC).
We aim to treat injury, and prevent recurrence with skilled diagnosis and up-to-date treatment methods.
Improving patient awareness then contributes to the prevention of recurrence of injuries.
We work together with all patients and other healthcare specialities to help patients achieve peak performance, and to have a good quality of life, without pain or injury.
