Therapy Banner

Physiotherapists go through an extensive three year training programme.  They learn about the action of all the muscles and joints.  They know about breathing properly and cardio-vascular disease.  They work either with a diagnosis given to them by the general practitioner or a specialist or they may be asked to sort out where the problem is arising and then offer an appropriate treatment programme.  No problem is either too big or too small for our therapists to handle.  An initial assessment over one hour will determine how best to treat and approximately how many sessions will be required. 


It is easy to become accustomed to or just manage pain throughout our normal daily lives.  We find ourselves too busy sometimes to manage chronic back and neck pain and daily headache.  Lives then become controlled by the pain that is being experienced.  Physiotherapists will use every treatment modality available at the Body Factory.  We will certainly help you open all the doors that will enable either a pain-free life or at least one where pain can be much better controlled. 


Here at 'The Body Factory' we have a team of specialist physiotherapists who will identify the precise source of your pain.  Once identified, we will place you along a path of treatment and exercise rehabilitation programme. 


We also offer an "At Home Physiotherapy" service to fit in with your lifestyle in your own environment.


If you are suffering from pain and want to know more about how to help then make an appointment at "The Body Factory". We all look forward to working with you.


All our therapists are chartered and registered with the Health Professions Council.
