NHS Shetland's Physiotherapy Service is based in the Gilbert Bain Hospital and works with people throughout Shetland. This includes seeing patients in health centres, schools and their own homes.

Before you come to physio you could try some of the advice or exercises on NHS Inform's Muscle, Bone and Joints section.

Most muscle and joint problems and injuries improve with time and simple exercises - they might even save you a trip to physio!

There are lots of things that you can do to improve your own health, or help yourself and your family stay healthy. For information and resources about healthy eating, physical activity, stopping smoking, and lots more visit the Healthy Shetland website.

When visiting the Physiotherapy Department in the Gilbert Bain Hospital please ask at the Main Reception.
