What does a Physio do?
Physiotherapy treatment is based on identifying the cause of your problem and then using “hands-on” techniques, movement re-training, specific rehabilitation exercises and education to treat it. Our key goal in Physiotherapy is to find out what is causing your problem – this is the tricky bit and the bit we love! At LEAD REHABS we go out of our way to keep things uncomplicated; the single most effective tool we employ is open and clear communication. Our goal is to improve your movement and make you feel better than when you walked in the door. Physiotherapy for dancers is the best choice!
