Can physiotherapy help me?
Physiotherapy is very effective for a wide range of conditions. From back ache and neck pain to joint problems, sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, neurological problems and strains and pain during pregnancy, the physiotherapists at Leyland Physiotherapy can help. Physiotherapists can also treat patients with asthma, incontinence, whiplash, osteoporosis and cerebral palsy.

Because physiotherapists look at the whole body rather than just the injury or illness you have presented with, they can also offer you advice on lifestyle issues, posture and the prevention of further problems occurring.

PhysioIf you are experiencing any of these problems, or have any other health problem that you think might be able to be treated with physio, please do contact us and we will be able to look at a possible treatment plan.

What do physiotherapists do?
Physiotherapists are healthcare professionals who help people to restore their movement and function when they are affected by injury, illness or disability. We work with people in a wide variety of health settings such as hospitals, mental health services, stroke recovery and occupational health services and care of the elderly.

Physiotherapists work to help people to promote their own health and wellbeing. We tailor the work we do to each individual person we treat, using our trained, clinical judgement to apply the best and most appropriate techniques to help.
