Physiotherapy is beneficial for many different problems.
Please contact me if you are unsure if physiotherapy can help treat your condition, which can include:
The focus of treatment is to get to the root of your problem, taking a holistic view of you and your lifestyle and overall health to ensure wellbeing.
The first physiotherapy assessment lasts for 1 hour. During this time your condition is thoroughly assessed and a treatment plan is formed, you will typically receive treatment as part of this session. An average of a further four to six 30 minute follow-up sessions are usually required.
The aim of physiotherapy is to restore you to optimum health. In most instances this is a full recovery. In some circumstances this is not possible. If necessary onward referrals to GP or Consultants will be suggested for either alternative treatment or further investigations. For those with long-term conditions physiotherapy will help you manage your symptoms to the best of your ability.
Treatment can include manual therapy such as joint mobilisation and soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, the use of tape or splints, advice and education to help you understand why you are in pain, ergonomic and postural education and rehabilitation for future prevention which can include stretches, strength and conditioning and pilates core strengthening.
