Physio in Falmouth
Physiotherapy is practical treatment that helps to restore movement and function when someone has been affected by illness, injury or disability. The main tools used by a physiotherapist are manual therapy, exercise, gentle movement, advice and education.
Your physiotherapist will be able to help you maintain your health no matter how old you are or whether you already suffer from a known condition. Your physiotherapist will be focused on helping you to encourage development and facilitate recovery, a physiotherapist tries to enable people to stay in work while helping them to keep their independence for as long as possible.
Working alongside the medical professional, physiotherapy is a science-based profession that takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing. This includes examination of the patient’s general lifestyle as well as the particular problems that caused them to visit the physiotherapist.
One valuable element of physiotherapy is that it has, at its core, the patient’s close involvement in their own care through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their own treatment and recovery.
A person can benefit from physiotherapy at any time of life. Whether you suddenly experience back pain or have an injury at work or during sport, whether you are managing a long-term medical condition such as asthma or even in preparing for big physical events such as childbirth or a sporting challenge.
