Physiotherapists are specialists in the application of movement in the recovery process. Whether you have a sore back or are recovering from an injury, movement during the recovery process is important. Physiotherapists will design a tailored home exercise programme relevant to your needs, which are dependent on your goals and stage of injury. A gradual approach is adopted, initially concentrating on positions or movements that provide pain relief and then progressing to improving flexibility, strength and dynamic control. Physiotherapists use specialist knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics in order to prescribe exercises or positions that enable a full and speedy recovery.
