What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy can help people of all ages who have physical problems that are caused by illness, accident, or ageing. The physios at Oakleigh Physio Clinic are specialists at dealing with sports injuries.

Physiotherapy, known to many as physio, helps people to improve their function in order to promote health and well-being. The main focus of physio is problems that affect the muscles, bones, fascia and nerves. Physiotherapy involves a range of treatments, including manipulation, massage, exercise, acupuncture, electrotherapy, Pilates and Work Place Assessments.

The physiotherapy techniques that we use at Oakleigh Physio in Whetstone, North London can improve your ability to use parts of your body that are affected by disease or injury. For example, arthritis is a long term condition that causes painful and stiff joints. Physiotherapy can help to keep the joints mobile (able to move) and strengthen the surrounding muscles.
