Physiotherapy is a mainstream, NHS recognised, evidence-based treatment for a wide range of musculo-skeletal conditions and injuries.  It is designed to alleviate painful symptoms and restore normal movement and function.  All joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and peripheral nerves can be treated in this way.  Examples include sports injuries, back and neck pain, post-operative care and work-related upper limb disorders to name but a few.  
During your first consultation you will be asked about the nature and history of your problem, including past episodes of similar symptoms. A physical examination is then carried out to determine diagnosis and choice of treatment.  A selected treatment plan will then be discussed with you including an estimate of the number of sessions needed and likely outcome. 
You will also be advised on injury prevention and rehabilitative exercises which can include a gym session to devise a tailor-made programme which you can then carry out independently to protect against further injury and improve sports performance.
