Physiotherapy

We aim to speed up the body’s own
natural healing mechanisms

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a distinct and holistic health care profession which employs the most extensive portfolio of therapies emphasizing the use of physical approaches in the prevention and treatment of trauma, disease and disability.

Active VIII physiotherapists undertake systematic assessment of musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and neurological disorders of function.

We use natural methods based primarily on movement, manual and manipulative physiotherapy, rehabilitation and a range of physical agencies to treat injury and disease.

We aim to speed up the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, restoring physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status.
