What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
Physiotherapy can help regain your strength, restore movement and increase your confidence following an injury, illness, surgery or falls. Erin and Katie will carry out a thorough assessment of your needs and discuss what you would like to achieve through physiotherapy.
As well as seeing clients on a one to one basis we run several exercise classes. Exercising in a group has been shown to increase compliance and fitness. Our clients really feel the value of exercising in this way.
Working with Erin and Katie will allow you to accomplish your personal goals and return to activities you enjoy!
