What physiotherapists do
They combine their knowledge, skills and approach to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different ‘systems’ of the body. In particular they treat:
• Sports Injuries
• Stroke recovery
• Occupational health
• Care of the elderly
Physiotherapists (“physios”) work in a wide variety of health settings such as:
• Intensive care
• Neuromuscular (brain and nervous system)
• Musculoskeletal (soft tissues, joints and bones)
• Cardiovascular (heart)
• Respiratory systems (heart and lungs and associated physiology).
Physiotherapy is available at both Cleve Chiropractic and at our world class physiotherapy centre Next Step. Next Step is situated opposite Cleve Chiropractic in Mangotsfield. Mangotsfield is sandwiched between Downend, Emersons Green, Staple Hill and Siston. Next step was built in 2013 to house the specialist equipment and space that is needed for the standard for rehabilitation and treatment that you would expect at any Premiership football or rugby club. This allows us to treat our world class athletes and use the same equipment and treatment methods for everybody.
Our highly qualified and hugely experienced managing director and ‘physio’ is called Keith. You may have seen him on the TV running onto the pitch at Bath rugby or even at the 2012 Olympics and 2014 Commonwealth Games! He currently works as first team physio for Bristol Rovers. Keith has availability most weeks but if you can not manage to see him then he is supports by our physio team who are also highly qualified and experienced!
