Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery. Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. 

They are State Registered (HCPC) and Chartered (MCSP)

They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.

The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them remain independent for as long as possible.

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.

At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment, and participation in their treatment.

You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term medical condition such as asthma, and in preparing for childbirth or a sporting event.

Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession. Physios use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as:

  • Neurological (stroke, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis)
  • Neuromusculoskeletal (back pain, whiplash associated disorder, sports injuries, arthritis)
  • Cardiovascular (chronic heart disease, rehabilitation after heart attack)
  • Respiratory (asthma, choronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis).

Physiotherapists work in a variety of specialisms in health and social care. Additionally, some physiotherapists are involved in education, research and service management.

What patients say about me:

After a session with Katherine I had a three hour walk with a pain-free knee for the first time for several months! Using her professional expertise, she is very careful to establish exactly where the problem lies. She gives excellent treatment, delivered in a very friendly and caring manner, and provides exercises (with video examples to show how these should be done) to continue the treatment.

Katherine first helped me to get ready for my first marathon run in 2019. She was able to make a quick, thorough assessment highlighting my weak ankles and provide an all round exercise programme tailored to myself to help strengthen my ankles and whole body. In only a couple of months, that is all I had, I was fit enough to be a finisher!! I recently turned an ankle badly and Katherine immediately assessed the problem, massaged the tightness out and gave me exercises to do. She is extremely professional, really knows her stuff, friendly and encouraging. A lot is covered in 1/2 hour session which seems to finish quickly. I highly recommend her services.

I've been a distance runner for many years and so, over the years, have had numerous injuries and trips to the physio. Katherine is easily the best I've been to. I've needed treatment from her on 4 or 5 occasions over the last 10 years or so. She is meticulous in assessing and understanding the problem and its underlying causes. The treatment she provides, including the programmes of exercises, has always been helpful and effective. Above all, she is very positive and pragmatic, which includes telling you what you might not want to hear, and she understands how much you want get running again!
