WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy is an established and dynamic profession that uses a range of treatment techniques to restore movement and function to the body.
Physiotherapy can be beneficial at the first sign of a problem and can stop minor niggles developing into the major problems which leave you unable to carry out normal daily activities, hobbies or sports.
SUNDERLAND PHYSIOTHERAPY CLINIC
We provide ‘hands on Physiotherapy’ treatment at Sunderland Physiotherapy Clinic, as well as exercise prescription, ultrasound, acupuncture, to name a few.
We can liaise with your GP as required if other management options, investigations or if a referral to a consultant is required.
All Physiotherapy appointments are with either Lindsey, Pete, Hannah and Debs, who are specialist musculoskeletal Chartered Physiotherapists with over 40 years combined experience.
We will take time to listen to you, which in turn helps us understand what is happening and therefore diagnose the problem accurately. From here we will then give you a concise treatment and management plan, working towards your needs and goals. So whether you need to return to work and sport again, or simply want to get up and down the stairs easier, we will help you achieve your goals.
