Patient Resources and Information

Chronic Pain Information

At the core of intervention is involving service users in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment. First Contact Physiotherapists help to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible. First Contact Physiotherapy takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.

Physical Therapy Exercise

Physical Activity

Banbridge Area

Physical activity is all about moving more and sitting less. It is much easier to sustain if it is enjoyable, and is incorporated into daily life to become a habit.

Physical activity is good for us, not only to help us physically but also mentally no matter what your age or fitness level.

The Southern Trust coordinates a number of physical activity initiatives to help communities stay active and increase awareness of moving more and sitting less.
