Physiotherapy treats injuries and conditions by correcting and improving the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. A wide variety of techniques are used to help muscles, joints, nerves and other soft tissues work harmoniously and to their full potential.
Our physiotherapists use a wide range of skills including mobilisation, manipulation, massage, exercises and dry needling – designed to help restore function, relieve pain and aid healing.
Our physiotherapists undertake a thorough assessment of each problem. This will involve a full case history and examination usually lasting between 45 and 60 minutes. This, together with an understanding of your work, rest and recreational activities, will help identify your problem(s), which in some circumstances may be situated some distance from where the pain is felt. It also ensures that the diagnosis and treatment will relate to you and your lifestyle. After a full consultation the best form of treatment will be determined. Preventative measures are very important in physiotherapy. We will spend time teaching you how to avoid recurrence of your problem.
Follow-up treatment sessions will normally last between 30 and 45 minutes.
