Physiotherapy is the treatment of a wide variety of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions using manual mobilisations, exercise, electrotherapy, hydrotherapy, facilitation, postural correction, advice and education. The treatment given is tailored to each individual’s needs and aims to ensure that each person’s rehabilitation is a success.
Our team of Physiotherapists all have at least 5 years experience, many over 10 years, in their chosen field of expertise. We are all Chartered Physiotherapists and registered with the Health Professionals Council (HPC).
This involves the treatment of muscles, joints, bones, ligaments and tendons using a wide range of physiotherapy techniques, best suited to each individual’s condition. Musculoskeletal conditions can be separated into acute (recent injuries) or chronic (long term) conditions.
Acute or recent injuries can occur when playing sport or through routine daily activities at home or at work. Physiotherapy can be beneficial in helping recent injuries and often help facilitate an early return to sport or work. It also stops acute conditions developing into serious, longer term problems. Physiotherapy has an important role to play in stopping injuries / conditions returning in the future.
Some examples of acute injuries are shown below:
- Ligament Injuries
- Tendon Injuries
- Muscle Strains
- Overuse Injuries
- Broken bones
- Swollen joints
Physiotherapy also has a vital role to play in the treatment and long-term management of chronic and degenerative conditions. Although Physiotherapy may not always be able to cure these conditions it can help relieve pain, increase movement and ultimately improve a person’s ability to function.
Some of these chronic / degenerative conditions include:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Joint Replacements
- Scheuermann’s Disease
