Physiotherapy Can Help

Physiotherapy can help people of all ages and activity levels and can help keep us flexible, pain-free. As we age, our bodies can lose the ability to move freely and easily; physiotherapy can help provide advice and treatment so that injuries don’t reoccur. We can all benefit from the hands-on treatment a physiotherapist can provide. Physiotherapy helps people of all ages to live an active, independent and healthy lifestyle. Importantly they can offer bespoke specific advice and guidance during your rehabilitation or injury—something you really won’t receive over the phone. Physiotherapy works by improving the way our bodies work, often improving the bodies range of movement and helping to reduce pain by enhancing strength and blood flow. Studies on Physiotherapy have shown that treatment within a week can positively influence the healing rate.  Hatfield Practice uses a wide range of treatments and techniques that have been shown to work well. Treatments can include relaxing deep tissue massage, active mobilisations, spinal manipulation, modern ultrasound electrotherapy and bespoke exercise treatment programmes that are used to aid your recovery. Physiotherapists effectively treat a wide variety of problems. Physiotherapy can help to keep people out of the hospital. Hatfield Practice can often provide same-day treatments. Fast access to treatment is essential as physiotherapy can reduce pain and inflammation quickly. Physiotherapy often reduces the need to see a GP for pain killers, or orthopaedic referral’  Hatfield Practice can refer to other specialists such as Osteopaths, Gp’s or surgeons if required.
