Evidence-based physiotherapy treatments and techniques to help your body work to its full potential.
Musculo-skeletal physiotherapy treatments
Cotswold Physiotherapy focuses on restoring normal movement, increasing strength and reducing pain in musculo-skeletal problems including before or after surgery, after accidents or injuries, for ageing joints or those spontaneous aches and pains that we all suffer from time to time. We offer a range of evidence-based physiotherapy treatments and techniques to help your body work to its full potential. Our aim is to effectively reduce symptoms such as pain, swelling and stiffness and to assist body recovery by providing the optimal musculo-skeletal environment for recovery to take place.
Our experienced physiotherapists use a wide variety of treatment options and are happy to assess and treat anyone with a musculo-skeletal problem affecting your joints, soft tissues (such as muscles, ligaments, tendons) or nerves. Common conditions we treat include:
Soft tissue injuries - acute and chronic injuries to muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Joint pain - including swelling, stiffness, injury and arthritis. We can treat spinal joint pain, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand pain, hip knee, ankle and foot pain.
