Physiotherapy Services

Aches and pains in your joints, muscles and bones can cause frustration and worry impacting your daily activities. These can be treated by yourself, in your own home in most cases. We encourage patients to take advantage of the advice, information and exercises available on the Dorset Musculoskeletal Matters website, which local clinicians support. If you continue to suffer with a condition or injury affecting muscles, joints and soft tissues such as low back pain, shoulder pain or neck pain, a Physiotherapist may be able to help.
