Physiotherapy provides the logical foundation for good treatment planning.
It involves a deep understanding of the mechanical level of the body: anatomy, physiology and pathology.
The state of your movements, muscles and joints is assessed.

In essence Physiokey is a form of trans-cutaneous nerve stimulation (TNS) or electro-acupuncture. However it differs from the original TNS because it targets a different part of the nervous system - by stimulating the pain conduction fibres ("C - fibers) of the nerve, it creates a release of endorphines (Nature's "morphine").
Treatment feels like a prickling sensation which is often likened to getting a tatoo, but much less painful!
