Physiotherapy Physiotherapy is the treatment of a wide range of conditions and injuries to the body through the use of various forms of passive mobilisation, massage, electrotherapy, acupuncture and exercise.
All our physiotherapists are charted physiotherapists with HPC registration. All the physiotherapists are constantly updating their knowledge so we can deliver excellence in treatment.
Muscle and Joint Injuries Manipulative therapy is used for joint injuries for example a sprained ankle or a painful back. The hands of the physiotherapist are used to mobilise (gently move) or manipulate (stronger movement) stiff or painful joints.
Muscle imbalance re-education - an assessment of muscle imbalance is undertaken followed by a program of exercises specific to the patient aimed at full recovery and prevention of further injuries.
Sports Injuries - Whatever the sport and whether injuries be sprains, strains or bruising, a quicker and more thorough recovery will be made if treated early.
Physiotherapy will speed up the rate of recovery by reducing swelling and preventing joint stiffness. Early treatment will also help minimise tissue damage and provide for a quicker return to active sport.
Getting fit to ski or for other strenuous activities. If you are going on a sporting holiday or preparing for a physically demanding activity, then consult a physiotherapist to help prepare you and reduce the risk of injury.
Neck and Back Injuries - If you suffer from a neck or back injury then a physiotherapist is able to provide a full assessment and appropriate treatment. Spinal conditions in particular need to be treated promptly if long term disability and prolonged treatment are to be prevented.
Postural low back pain can be the start of more significant back problems such as disc problems. Long hours at a computer with poor sitting posture can contribute to lower back pain. See a physiotherapist for ergonomic advice.
