Physiotherapy is a health-care profession concerned with human function and movement. Physiotherapists are the best professionals to consult for treatment of the following physical problems:
- Muscle strains
- Joint problems
- Sports injuries
- Continence Issues (leakage of urine)
- Respiratory conditions e.g. Asthma, Emphysema
- Neurological conditions e.g. Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease
- Cardiac Rehabilitation
If you think that you need some physiotherapy advice for a back, neck, muscle or joint problem, you don't have to consult your GP first to be referred, and seeing your GP first will NOT get you a better or faster service.
You can simply telephone: 0800 917 9390 Monday – Friday, between 9 am and 5 pm.
