general physiotherapy


General PhysioThe Egremont PhysioFirst team help to restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disability. As a health care profession, our physiotherapists have a strong scientific foundation that covers a broad and varied range of work which involves working with people to promote their own health and well being.

People are often referred for physiotherapy by doctors or other health and social care professionals. Increasingly, as a result of changes in health care, people are self referring directly to Egremont PhysioFirst Limited without the need to have previously been seen by any other health care professional.

AcupunctureAt Egremont PhysioFirst Limited we offer acupuncture as one of our many skills as part of an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation.

Egremont PhysioFirst Limited Physiotherapists base their treatments on scientific research and clinical evidence that Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being), to name but a few. These chemicals assist the body's healing processes and offer pain relief as a precursor to other treatments such as manual therapy or exercise in order to aid recovery.
