Treatment

Our recommendation

Physiotherapy is the science of restoring movement and function to parts of the body and mapping out a plan to keep issues away. For injury rehabilitation, sports preparation, post-operative care and more, time with a physio is immensely valuable and a key part of recovery.

Urban physiotherapists are all fully registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). That means they’ve got a three- or four-year degree programme under their belt, and a minimum of a thousand hours of clinical training. You’re in good hands.

Some are also specialists in areas such as women’s health (pre- and post-natal care), neurological disorders and paediatrics – browse individual bios to find the right physio for you.

During your treatment

Your consultation will begin with an assessment of your physical condition, including tests on the strength and range of motion of problem areas.

Most consultation sessions also include some manual treatment. Usually this includes stretching, manipulation of joints and some light exercises, although your therapist might also include other treatments, like kinesiology taping or dry needling.

Your physio will leave you with an understanding of the causes of discomfort and a plan for recovery – this typically includes a routine of daily stretches and exercises, recommendations on further treatments and a timeline for improvements.
