Physiotherapy is a degree-based health care profession, enabling physiotherapists to use their knowledge and skills to restore movement and functional ability for those affected by injury, illness or disability.
Physiotherapists use their skills to accurately assess, diagnose and treat conditions using physical interventions such as manual therapy techniques, as well as modalities like ultrasound or acupuncture.
Physiotherapists are also ideally placed to facilitate recovery from sports injuries and advise on rehabilitation to encourage a full return to sport for all ages.

Testimonial from a client:
I have been attending Wendy's Pilates classes at the Border Physiotherapy Clinic since they first started. I joined because they were advertised as being particularly suitable for those with back problems and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Wendy was very careful about the exercises I should do and, when I sought her professional advice, she was the first person I had consulted who was able to diagnose my problem and recommend treatment. Following surgery, I was told that my excellent recovery owed a great deal to the Pilates exercises I had done with Wendy both before and after the operation. JH
