What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is concerned with the musculoskeletal systems in the body; that is, conditions that affect joints, muscles and bones, and the tissues that connect them. Such problems may be due to illness, injury or disability and usually result in pain and/or problems with movement. Physiotherapists are not doctors and cannot prescribe drugs, but work alongside medical practitioners to provide a physical treatment.
Physiotherapists use a range of techniques to help people, including manual therapy, education and advice, movement and exercise, targeted rehabilitation and acupuncture.
At Truly Therapeutic in Chorley our aim is to use physiotherapy techniques to facilitate recovery so that our patients can return to full fitness at the earliest opportunity, or are able to manage long-term, acute conditions in such a way as to allow them to live a normal and independent life for as long as possible.
