What is a Physiotherapist?

Physiotherapists are one of the leading health professionals in the UK after Doctors and Nurses. They treat people of all ages for injuries and a wide range of health related conditions. Physiotherapists undertake a high level of training to understand how the body works to be able to assess poor movement and function and develop strategies for treatment. They are experts at prescribing individualised exercise programmes, as well as using a range of manual therapy techniques to help treat the problem.

  • “Ruth has been such a huge help to me with my various issues as I’ve returned to activity after a long time of being static. She has a wonderful manner, both caring and professional, and is really clear about what’s going on and how I can help myself to get better. The combination of acupuncture, massage and rehabilitative exercises has made a huge difference to me – Ruth has been and continues to be a fantastic support and I would recommend her to anybody.”

  • “Last winter, whilst running, I experienced sudden and extreme knee pain. The pain was so severe I had to stop running for weeks which was a huge blow as running is so important to me. I finally went to Ruth with my problem. It was the best thing I could have done. She carried out a thorough assessment with sensitivity and skill. Ruth then went on to explain to me, in language that I could understand, what the problem was. With her tailor made exercise plan and her follow up support I finally got back to running. I haven’t had any problems since. I am so grateful to Ruth and thanks to her I recently completed my first half marathon!!! Thank you Ruth!!”

  • “I am a recreational runner, and suffer the usual lower body aches and pains. Ruth’s knowledge, expertise and professionalism was outstanding in treating my hip, IT band and core muscle group issues. She began with an in-depth interview to determine background, history and specific areas of concern. Her examinations, relief treatment and suggested recovery exercises were spot on, and allowed me to return to form with an improved commitment. I also have new knowledge of how my body works and responds to the strains I put it through. Thank you Ruth!”

Her professionalism and competency were of an extremely high standard and I was really pleased at the amount of research she had made into my condition, as well as the informative print outs and exercises she gave me to better help my recovery. I would recommend her to everybody.”
