What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy works with patients to help them walk and move freely after injury, recover mobility after illness or surgery, manage chronic diseases like arthritis and diabetes and much more. A physiotherapist will work with you to put together a treatment plan for your condition or injury, so you can get back to enjoying life and the activities you love.
