What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a health profession concerned with helping to restore wellness to people following injury, pain or disability. It aims to facilitate and promote normal movement and function. This is achieved by using a wide range of techniques such as education and advice, movement-based exercise and hands-on manual therapy.

Physiotherapy also plays a huge role in injury prevention and lifestyle modification to improve activity levels. Our aim is to quickly reduce any pain you have while resolving your injury and rectifying any dysfunction that injury may have caused, to get you back to doing what you love!

Each physiotherapist working at Total Physio is a member of the ISCP (MISCP) and fully insured. Our pilates instructors are also all Chartered Physiotherapists.

Statutory regulation protects the public by “promoting high standards of professional conduct, education, training and competence” (CORU) and the law now states that all practicing Physiotherapists in Ireland must be listed on the Physiotherapists Register and adhere to the updated Code of Conduct. Each physiotherapist working at Total Physio is CORU registered.
