Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that works with patients to identify and maximise their ability to move and function. The Royal Charter gives physiotherapy a broad scope to practice that includes manipulation, manual therapy, exercise and movement, electrotherapy and other physical approaches.
Our Physiotherapists combine their knowledge, skills and experience to treat a broad range of physical problems associated with the musculoskeletal (soft tissues, bones and joints), neuromuscular (nervous system), cardiovascular and respiratory conditions.
On the first visit to Kingsmead a Physiotherapist will undertake an assessment from which a professional physiotherapy diagnosis will be made. The patient’s goals will be identified and an appropriate treatment plan put in place.
Techniques include Manual Therapy, Exercise Therapy, Electrotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Sports Massage and Acupuncture.
