- Feedback for Physiotherapy:
I had back injury and wasn’t able to play football anymore. I had a course of physiotherapy and now I can enjoy the game. My physiotherapist also taught me some techniques so hopefully it will not happen again. Many thanks.

What is Physiotherapy?
From the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Curriculum Framework (January 2002):
Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential:
• it uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status
• it is science-based, committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery
• the exercise of clinical judgment and informed interpretation is at its core.
How does it work?
Physiotherapy aims to restore the body to a normal functioning state by regaining strength in the muscles and increasing range of movement. A Physiotherapist will use techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation and manipulation, exercise and stretches. Another skill used by physiotherapists is the application of electro physical modalities which involves the use of electro physical agents such as heat packs, ultrasound and laser therapy to improve circulation and stimulate the body’s own healing systems.
Physiotherapists will also advise patients on diet and teach some exercises and breathing techniques to help with a healthy lifestyle.
Treatment cost varies and depends on your condition, location etc. Generally, a first visit which lasts about one hour can cost from £30 - £60 and the following sessions which last about 30 minutes will cost an average of £30. Most medical insurance policies will cover physiotherapy but check with your insurer to see if you are covered.The number of sessions you need depends on your condition and reaction to the treatment. Five sessions is the average.
