Physiotherapists provide a service for patients with a wide range of health conditions, using a variety of therapies and techniques.
Their aim is to restore function, maximise independence and assist in improving quality of life by careful assessment, direct treatment, advice and education, working with patients to achieve mutually agreed goals.
Working in both hospital and community-based locations, physiotherapists are part of a multidisciplinary/multiagency team including, among others, social work, care providers, voluntary services and local authorities.
They treat adults and children who are suffering from:
• acute injuries
• musculoskeletal problems
• deteriorating mobility
• respiratory conditions
• stroke and other neurological problems
• learning disabilities
• mental health problems.
Advice and information to help you manage muscle injuries, joint or back problems are available on the NHS Inform website.
