Physiotherapy helps reduce pain, restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. Physiotherapists use a flexible and holistic approach towards meeting the needs of their clients, respecting their autonomy. Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle. Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession. Physios use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body.
Physiotherapy is a ‘hands on’ manual therapy and one of the best scientifically proven approaches for the treatment of joints, muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments. Physiotherapists assess and diagnose the problem, then plan and administer treatment and rehabilitation programmes that aim to restore function and minimise dysfunction after disease or injury.
Our Physiotherapy team are all highly qualified to degree level and are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). Through professional training, our Physiotherapists understand how and why structures move and why pain and injury occur.
Bradley Physio strive to improve an individual’s quality of life by physical means. A combination of manual therapy, manipulation, movement training, exercise programmes, pilates and acupuncture are used to relieve pain, promote healing and restore function.
We also advise on preventative measures and will educate you on how to avoid recurrence of your problem. On your first consultation, you will have a thorough assessment. This full assessment is to identify your problem and provide you with an accurate and thorough clinical diagnosis. Your condition will be explained, treatment, advice and appropriate home exercises will be given as necessary, and any of your questions answered.
Confidentiality, privacy, one to one attention and a high level of treatment skills, as well as direct / same day access to some of the North’s leading medical specialists and scanning facilities, form an integral part of the treatment process, should further medical/surgical intervention be required.
