Professional service ……………
At Active Therapy we are passionate about the quality of physiotherapy services we provide. From the initial point of contact with our experienced, professional practice manager to the treatment you receive under our expert chartered physiotherapist you can expect the highest standards of care.

We always

Specialist assessment and treatment ……………

Utilising advanced assessment skills we will diagnose the cause of your condition rather than just treating symptoms. We fully educate all our clients regarding their condition as understanding your condition is an important step in the pathway to recovery. You will then receive targeted treatment and rehabilitation based upon these findings. Andrew is an extended scope physiotherapist trained to request diagnostic imaging, blood analysis and utilise ultrasound imaging.  He is also an accredited injection therapist and acupuncturist.

You can be assured of an effective, professional approach to your treatment with outstanding results.
