Physiotherapy is a science-based healthcare profession that promotes recovery in illness, injury or disability. It aims to restore movement and functional ability to a person’s full potential. Physiotherapy is an independent profession where practitioners make their own treatment decisions and clinical judgements.
Physiotherapists constantly reassess the results of their treatments and adjust their approach. They take a holistic approach and involve the patient closely in their own care.

What do physiotherapists treat?
Physiotherapists assess, treat and manage a broad spectrum of physical problems. These are related to the respiratory, cardiovascular, neuromuscular and musculoskeletal systems of the body.
Do I need a referral to visit a physio?
No, you do not require a doctor’s referral to see a physiotherapist. Physios are independent professionals just like dentists or other specialists. You can book an appointment with Parkview Therapy. This method is known as “self-referral” and is possible in most areas of the UK privately.
How can physiotherapy help?
Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.
