Physiotherapists at The Northern Integrative Health Practice in Sacriston, Durham help people of all ages who have physical problems caused by illness, accident or ageing. They also work with stroke patients, children and people who have mental health problems. An important part of a physiotherapist's role involves understanding the cultural, psychological and social factors that affect their clients.

Physiotherapy, sometimes referred to as physio, helps people to improve their range of movement in order to promote health and well being. This can help people to live more independently. In particular, physiotherapists concentrate on problems that affect muscles, bones, the heart, circulation and lungs. Physiotherapy involves a range of treatments, including manipulation, massage, exercise, electrotherapy and hydrotherapy.

Physiotherapy techniques at The NIHP Sacriston Practice in Durham can improve the ability to use parts of the body that have been affected by disease or injury. For example, arthritis is a long-term condition that causes painful and stiff joints. Physiotherapy can help to keep the joints mobile (able to move) and strengthen the surrounding muscles.

Physiotherapy involves hands-on treatments to help patients regain the use of parts of their body.
Physiotherapists can help a wide range of people and treat a number of different conditions including arthritis, osteoporosis, and hip and joint replacements, heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke and cerebral palsy.

Physiotherapy can treat conditions and injuries that affect the bones, joints and muscles. It can help with sports injuries, repetitive strain injury, neck pain, back pain and arthritis. It can also assist with rehabilitation after orthopaedic surgery.
