What is musculoskeletal physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

Physiotherapy can help with back pain, sudden injury and long-term medical conditions as well as childbirth and sporting injuries.

They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
