Physiotherapy can help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility.
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that assesses, diagnoses, treats and works to prevent disease and disability through physical means. Physiotherapists are experts in movement and function who work in partnership with their patients, assisting them to overcome movement disorders, which may have been present from birth, acquired through accident or injury, or are the result of ageing or life changing events, (APA).
Physiotherapy can help you recover from injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and increase mobility. A physiotherapist can also help you prevent further injury by listening to your needs and working with you to plan the most appropriate treatment for your condition, including setting goals and treatment outcomes.
What conditions do we treat?
We treat a wide variety of different conditions. These range from:
- Sports Injuries e.g ligament sprains
- Back / Neck pain
- Trapped nerve
- Post operative rehab and fracture
- And many more…
What sort of treatments do physiotherapists use?
Physiotherapists are trained to assess your condition, diagnose the problem and help you understand what’s wrong. Your treatment plan will take into account your lifestyle, activities and general health.
Here are some common treatment modalities that your physiotherapist may use:
- Individually tailored exercise programmes
- Joint manipulation and mobilisations
- Muscle re-education
- Soft tissue massage
During your initial assessment your physiotherapist will assess and diagnose your condition, as well as discuss your specific goals. All of this will be based on a combination of questions and physical examination. We aim to also start treatment on our first session, as long as this is deemed appropriate.
