Physiotherapy Blackburn

Blackburn Physiotherapy

When something within the body you've always been accustomed to feels out of the ordinary, it can be daunting and worrisome. Occasionally, injuries and illnesses may obstruct our pursuit of goals, but that doesn't imply we can't rehabilitate and regain our previous state.


Our Blackburn physiotherapists work diligently to mitigate pain and re-establish your innate movement patterns. At Eastside Physio, our focus is to reduce and eliminate pain, regenerate muscle and joint function, and enhance your overall mobility, empowering you to live a happier, healthier, and injury-free life.

Benefits Of Physiotherapy in Blackburn
Relieve Pain

Techniques used by our Blackburn physios aim to relieve pain by taking your individual body into account, incorporating therapies that are tailored to your specific injury or condition.

Restore Movement

Injuries and conditions may inhibit your movement and make you feel stiff and immobile. Physiotherapy may help to restore movement and function through targeted exercises.

Increase Mobility

Mobility may be increased through strengthening exercises, endurance training, and balance and falls prevention, helping to give you back as much independence as possible.

Speed Up Recovery

Recovering from an injury or illness can be difficult enough, especially if you’ve also had surgery. Regardless of your situation, physiotherapy may help speed up your recovery by targeting injured tissue and working on it to regain function, reduce aches and pains, and strengthen vulnerable areas. 

Build Strength

We need strength to keep us performing at our best, whether that’s playing sport or moving around the house. Physiotherapy may help you to build strength where you need it most, such as the legs, arms, neck, back, and core, decreasing your risk of injuries and helping you to reach your goals.

Prevent Injury

Many people engage in a blackburn physiotherapist as a means to prevent possible injuries in the future. Whether you’re a senior or a professional athlete, injury prevention is of the utmost importance. Physiotherapy may aid in injury prevention by strengthening vulnerable points, where your physiotherapist may develop a specific exercise program for you and any weak areas you may have. 

Our Physiotherapy Treatment Process

Our focus is on individually tailored treatment plans that are specific to your needs and goals. No matter your age or ability, we recognise you for the individual you are and we respect and value your opinions as much as you do ours.


During your treatment you will have time to ask questions and involve yourself in the treatment process.  At Eastside we work with you to plan the route to recovery and build strategies to get you back to good health as quickly and as safely as possible.

  • A thorough history is taken to establish the cause of your injury.

  • A detailed physical assessment is done to identify the extent (grade) of your injury. 

  • This is really important as we often see people who have failed “rehab” for a condition, only to find that previous treatments were not appropriate for the grade of the injury.  

  • Expect to receive hands-on care designed to immediately reduce your pain and speed up the recovery process.

  • The factors contributing to your pain will be identified and you will learn exactly what you should be doing to help speed up your recovery.    

Tailored Recovery Program
  • The exercises prescribed are specific to your injury and your individual needs. 

  • Expect guidance from your treating physio to ensure that you are improving as fast as possible.
