MSK Therapy:  What is Physiotherapy?

MSK Shoulder Ex2Physiotherapy helps to restore your ability to move and function as normal.  This means we help you with problems which may have happened due to injury, operation or age.

This is achieved by helping you understand your condition and  teaching you movements, stretches or exercises.   


Your physiotherapist will explain how you can

  • manage your pain

  • help your own recovery

  • prevent the problem from coming back

Research shows that physical activity and exercise are important to help recovery.

Your physiotherapist may provide you with an exercise programme based on your health, ability and fitness.
You will be encouraged to work on your physiotherapy programme at home, to get the most out of your treatment.


Physiotherapy is about teaching you what YOU can do to help yourself to improve and stay healthy.
