 Physiotherapy at Tattenhall Physiotherapy and Wellbeing Centre

About our Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapy and Sports injury Clinics aim to provide local rural physiotherapy to support local people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to help relieve pain and improve function for everyday life. Treatment may be focused on relieving pain, improving mobility or strength to do everyday things, helping people to return to sport or hobbies, or improve performance in sport, and most of all, to guide them back to leading a normal active lifestyle. Treatments consist of both hands-on treatment, education and exercise-based routines, because we have a passion for helping people understand their condition and empowering them to help themselves resolve or manage their musculo-skeletal problems.
