Physiotherapy Services

We understand how aches and pains in your joints, muscles and bones can cause frustration and worry impacting your daily activities. These can be treated by yourself, in your own home in most cases. We encourage patients to take advantage of the advice, information and exercises available on the Dorset Musculoskeletal Matters website* which local clinicians support.  For more information about looking after yourself, please follow this link:>>
