What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession that takes a holistic approach to health and well being. We encourage patients to take an active involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in treatment. You can benefit from Physiotherapy at any time in your life.

Injury occurs for a variety of reasons including trauma, lifestyle, occupation and the sports we play but whatever the cause Physiotherapy can help you return to doing the things that you enjoy.

What North Devon NHS Physiotherapists do

Our specialist team of Physiotherapists will carry out a comprehensive examination to help diagnose your problem. Working with you, the Physiotherapist can then develop the most effective treatment plan to help you recover.

Our Physiotherapists aim to use the most appropriate and evidence based techniques. This can include manual therapy, soft tissue massage, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, injection therapy & participation in specific rehabilitation classes. With appropriate advice & education your Physiotherapist will also provide you with a tailored home exercise programme. In combination, this treatment will help you achieve your goals and prevent re-injury.
