At David Roberts Physiotherapy we place great emphasis on a ‘hands-on’ approach to spinal and joint problems. We also understand the need to prevent recurrence of your injury and will teach you the important correct exercises to assist with keeping you in the best health possible.

This approach is often used to break down scar tissue/adhesions, remove a blockage in the joint and to restore full joint movement. Often used following heat, massage or mobilisation in order to relax the tissues optimally prior to manipulation. Our Physiotherapy team are skilled in the performance of specific manipulative techniques as part of your treatment programme.
