Physiotherapy means “natural healing” from the Greek words phusis meaning nature and therapeia meaning healing.
Treatments available include:
- soft tissue massage
- posture correction
- self-management advice
- exercises of various types
- Biomechanical assessment and correction if necessary with orthotics
This relates more to the exercise and functional management of physical problems, particularly after surgery or illness for example. It often involves specific stretching and strength exercises, fitness work and stability/Pilates exercises.
This form of treatment uses the natural properties of water to aid healing, hence it is best described as specific exercises performed in water. This allows the joints in the body to escape the effects of gravity and often movement becomes less painful and much easier. It is often beneficial to those with longstanding joint conditions or those needing specific rehabilitation following joint surgery.
This is a natural form of gentle healing. It is ‘hands-on’ but can be performed fully clothed. It often brings about deep relaxation and rest allowing the body to heal itself.
This is a particular form of massage applied usually to the feet. By massaging these specific reflex points it is possible to treat the whole body.
