Physiotherapy uses movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice to help restore movement and the ability to live life when you are affected by injury, illness or disability.

Calder Therapies has been providing Physiotherapy in Hebden Bridge since 2010, helping people in the local and wider area recover from and manage their injuries, illnesses and disabilities.

What does Physiotherapy do?

I aim, where possible, to encourage maximum improvement and recovery from injuries and problems. For the more chronic and long-term conditions and disabilities that people come with, the aim is for improvement where possible and, alongside this, the best possible management program that we can work out between us.

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing. Furthermore, I believe that a Physiotherapist should always aim to help people achieve their best possible level of function, at any stage in life, in all areas of work, play, family and independent life.

Finally, at the core is of my Physiotherapy is YOUR involvement in your care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in your treatment.


Why Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession and is the major movement-based therapy that is endorsed by the NHS, GPS, healthcare providers and insurers. As well as this professional recognition, Physiotherapy is carefully monitored and regulated by the HCPC regulatory body. Finally we Physiotherapists use our intensive degree training and post-grad experience to improve people's pain and ability to function relating to their specific injuries, illnesses and/or diabilities.

Physiotherapists can work in a variety of specialisms in health, education and social care but, through offering Physiotherapy in Hebden Bridge, I specialise in the people of the local and surrounding areas and the issues that this population presents with. (Some of this information is taken from the ‘Chartered Society of Physiotherapy’ website. The rest is original text created by myself describing the Physiotherapy offered by Calder Therapies.)





"It's quite a while since I had my individual sessions with Julie, but I am still continuing with the exercises she gave me because they have made so much difference. I also found the Pilates classes really useful. I would just like to say thank you for staying in touch and sharing your articles - I find them extremely useful." - Susie
