Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay in work while helping them to remain independent for as long as possible.
Our physiotherapists within the practice base their treatments on a detailed history, with an examination, assessment and analysis of presenting signs and symptoms. This is to ascertain an accurate diagnosis and will be the basis on which treatment decisions will be planned. A continual re-assessment of the problem is made as treatment progresses.
We favour a hands-on approach which will usually involve massage, joint mobilisation, neural mobilising techniques or manipulation. We actively encourage patient involvement in the management of the condition by promoting an understanding of the problem and practical methods to prevent recurrence.
The practice is equipped with up to date therapeutic machinery including ultra-sound, interferential, short-wave diathermy, electro-magnetic energy, T.E.N.S and traction. Exercise is an integral part of treatment.
Early treatment of acute pathology prevents chronic recurrent problems which are more difficult to handle.
