Physiotherapy aims to: improve pain and functioning; provide education, empathy and reassurance where possible; and aims to prevent the recurrence of injuries in the future.

Physiotherapy uses a patient-centred and holistic approach, considering an individual’s physical, mental and social functioning and the activity and participation in life, for example, anything from self-care activities of daily living to elite sports.

A Physiotherapist promotes health and well-being, utilising skills such as observation, listening, and physical assessment. This may be to help an individual in their recovery from an injury or to enhance their functioning and movement in also preventing injury and/or improving performance in sport. A Physiotherapist may provide care via means of listening, advice and education, exercises, and manual therapy.

The scope of practice of a Doctor is different to that of a Physiotherapist, although there is overlap in some areas of practice. Some Physiotherapists may have additional training which makes them an Extended Scope Physiotherapist, who may be trained in skills such as Ultrasound scanning in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal conditions and Ultrasound Guided Injections.

Depending on the reason for attending Physiotherapy, it is generally advisable to wear loose, comfortable clothing to ensure that you can move. For example, if you have a knee issue, then shorts are advised with tracksuit bottoms over the top if it is cold. You may be asked if you are happy to remove clothing for the relevant area/s of the body to be assessed, however, this is only if you are comfortable doing so.

Physio appointments are either 30 minutes or 60 minutes.

Yes. A Physio can provide advice and education and an exercise programme to help manage arthritis and its associated symptoms or help to prevent arthritis in the future. This is holistically tailored to you as an individual, with personalised goals relating to anything from day-to-day activities of daily living to participation in sports. This can be during many stages of life and activity levels. For example, there can be a higher risk of developing arthritis in elite athletes in later life.

The movements of the individual will likely be altered as a result of the pain. Physiotherapy can explore manual therapy to help relieve the symptoms, exercise to improve pain and functioning in the long term, and consider other health and well-being factors that will help you in your recovery, such as sleep.
