Physiotherapy involves the rehabilitation of the patient by restoring movement following an injury or illness, and is suitable for the young and old alike. Massage, mobilisation and electrotherapy are used together in addition to a rehabilitation and exercise programme to achieve the best results.
Massage is used on affected areas so as to have the direct effect of muscle relaxation, and to prepare the body for the next stage of manual mobilisations and manipulations. Electrotherapy can then be used to aid the treatments and speed up healing.
Our physiotherapists will then work with you to develop an effective treatment plan that takes into account your lifestyle, leisure activities and general health. We all know prevention is better than cure – and it’s often the simple things that make the difference. Physiotherapists can advise on anything from muscle strengthening exercises to avoid falls, good footwear to positioning your pillows correctly to ease neck pain!
Physiotherapists are experts in body movement and understand how muscles and joints work together and why injuries can occur. Our physiotherapists combine their knowledge, skills and approach to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different 'systems' of the body.
In particular they treat:
- Back problems
- Neck problems
- Nerve entrapment
- Slipped discs
- Sports injury rehabilitation
- Rehabilitiation following surgery
- Joint dysfunctions
Our Physiotherapists are HPC registered and are able to provide receipts for insurance purposes.
