Core skills used by our physiotherapists include manual therapy (‘hands on treatment’), taping and strapping, therapeutic exercise or sports specific rehabilitation and the application of electrotherapy modalities (ultra-sound, interferential and pulsed short wave diathermy) . Manual therapy techniques include joint mobilisations, massage, soft tissue release and manipulation.
All our staff are autonomous professional practitioners (they make their own clinical judgement and justify treatment choices) and undertake ongoing professional reflection (reviewing clinical outcomes in our work and taking action as appropriate to solve problems we identify).
