Physiotherapy is provided by Optimum HealthCare Solutions who are based within our Centre in Harlow.
Physiotherapy can help people who have physical symptoms which can be caused by illness, accident or aging. An important part of a physiotherapist‘s role involves addressing the movement dysfunction and understanding the psychological and social factors that can affect their patients in order to promote health and well-being.
In particular, physiotherapists concentrate on problems that affect the joints, muscles, bones and the circulatory, neurological and respiratory systems. Physiotherapy techniques can improve the ability to use parts of the body that have been affected by disease or injury for any length of time. For example, a patient who has been suffering with lower back pain, or a patient who has been diagnosed with MS or suffered a recent stroke. Physiotherapy can help to keep the joints mobile, reduce muscular tension, improve postural awareness and increase patient understanding on how to self-manage their condition.

Optimum also offers an exercise class for patients suffering with Multiple Sclerosis which is based at the Mark Hall Sports Centre. The class will also soon be offered in Saffron Walden.
