Physical therapy is a holistic and patient-centred approach focusing on the manual treatment of the soft tissue – muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and analysing the effect of spinal and joint impact. Therapists use highly skilled, hands-on techniques to diagnose, prevent or treat underlying conditions and problems. It is based on health science principles and works alongside other health care practices.
Physical therapy treatments are founded on a tradition which recognises and values the healing properties of touch. It is proven as being very safe, non-invasive and is of course, drug free. Each treatment is individually tailored.
