What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. We will help to improve mobility in affected joints and muscles as well as helping to relieve pain and discomfort. Physiotherapy can also improve sporting performance, and help to prevent future injuries, stress and strain, and therefore the need for lengthy rehabilitation.

How can we help

On your  first visit to West Kirby Physiotherapy, our therapists will assess you thoroughly to properly diagnose  your problem and then discuss the different treatment options that are available with you.

Manual therapy may include joint mobilistation or manipulation. This is a hands on movement technique used by our physiotherapists to restore normal, pain free movement.

Soft tissue therapy that can include massage, trigger point release, myofascial release and muscle energy techniques.

Sports-specific exercise or strength and conditioning programme individually designed for you whether you are a professional athlete, serious fitness fanatic or play sport for fun.

Postural, Biomechanical and ergonomic assessments to understand how the alignment of your body and the way you move may cause pain or discomfort

Bespoke personal exercise programme for you to carry on with at home to supplement your hands on treatment. This will be emailed to you following your appointment so no need to remember once you have left the clinic!

After the first visit with Cat I felt confident in her diagnosis. Videoing me on treadmill to help identify the root cause of my problem and giving me specific exercises to strengthen weaknesses. Her hands on approach really helped release some muscles that overtime had been so tight they where causing a lot of pain. Massive relief to finally feel pain free. Thank you!

I have been having problems with my feet since 2016. Decided to try a private physio to see if they could help. After my assessment with Cat, she contacted my GP and arranged for an x-ray and blood tests. It turns out I have gout and tendon problems. Cat has given me exercises to help with the tendon problems and the GP is helping with the gout. Cat was a great help and everyone there is very friendly. Highly recommended.

Following shoulder surgery, I attended West Kirby Physiotherapy. I found them to be extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable. They were able to pinpoint my issues quickly and suggest various strategies to deal with them. I would like to thank the team for their help and will certainly use them again!

Sent my son to West Kirby Physiotherapy after a year of him suffering pain in his legs after doing sports. He was diagnosed within 10 mins of his consultation and the physiotherapist was amazing, making him feel comfortable and at ease. We were given a personal physiotherapy program to follow, with lots of advice and a follow up appointment. Since following the program, there has been a significant improvement in my son's mobility and the pain has almost completely vanished.
