PHYSIOTHERAPY

What is Physio?

Physiotherapy is a science-based form of treatment, which plays a vital role in healing, pain relief and rehabilitation following injury.

The treatment aims to correct and stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes without the use of medication.

At Nanda Massage & Physiotherapy, we firmly believe that education and advice on how to manage the condition are fundamental to successful treatment. By focusing on these aspects, we aim to keep the number of treatment sessions to a minimum.
