Physiotherapy helps restore movement or function when someone is affected by illness, injury or disability (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, 2012).
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.
They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
Physiotherapy is a degree based medical healthcare profession.
Lifestyle Physiotherapy takes a whole person approach to health and wellbeing, through education to support a deeper awareness of the lifestyle factors that may be contributing to the problem and supporting self-empowerment and self-care to enable a lasting change in these factors.
At North Cornwall Physiotherapy we don't just treat symptoms but look at the deeper lifestyle and behavioural factors that may be affecting the health and wellbeing of the body.
