Shirley – St Albans Physiotherapy Treatments

We use hands-on physiotherapy treatment methods ranging from manipulation and mobilisation of your joints and muscles as well as electrotherapy methods including ultrasound, interferential and TENS. Plus we will customise an exercise programme for you to follow in our onsite gym (or at home) to help strengthen and rehabilitate your injury.

At Shirley-St Albans Physiotherapy we have excellent working relationships with many specialists and local GP’s. If your condition is not improving as anticipated, we are able to refer you for x-rays or an ultrasound scan. If necessary we will arrange for a referral to an Orthopaedic Surgeon or a Specialist Sports Physician for further assessment.
