What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is one of the allied health professions and is performed by physiotherapists. It focusses on maximising quality of life and maintaining and improving human movement and function to promote physical health, which we recognise is closely linked with mental health. Physiotherapists use their manual examination skills, and training in movement pattern assessment alongside a thorough case history, to diagnose, manage and treat patients to help them maximise their physical potential.

The profession uses science-based evidence to underpin clinical reasoning skills to inform practice and the delivery of treatment. At CSPC Leeds, physiotherapists take a strategic, holistic and individualised approach for each patient, focussing on their needs. Whilst our physiotherapists provide advice and rehabilitation after operations and injury, they also have a passion for treating people who want to stay physically healthy, enabling them to enjoy life to the full, no matter what their age or aspiration.

Physiotherapists are autonomous practitioners, who are able to treat various systems of the body, and the physical issues that can arise due to dysfunction in any of them and how that can affect the rest of the body. In particular, they treat the musculoskeletal system (soft tissues, joints, bones and movement), the neuromuscular system (brain and nervous system) and cardiovascular and respiratory systems. At CSPC, we treat these systems where appropriate with a variety of effective hands-on treatments.

Constantly challenging ourselves to be the best

We are dedicated to continually training, challenging and developing ourselves to ensure we are at the leading edge of our profession.

All members of CSPC staff also attend regular external training. Many of these courses are run at the clinic with external educators to further expand our knowledge and experience.
