Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy treatment techniques are aimed at removing muscular, joint and nerve symptoms. They restore normal function and mobility and provide patients with skills to help manage their problem long term. Our physiotherapists use a hands on approach to treatment using a wide variety of manual skills and extensive knowledge of exercise therapy to help you recover from either acute or chronic injuries. Their extensive training in injury mechanism, pathology and rehabilitation allows them to provide the most reliable and evidence based advice and treatment for musculoskeletal disorders.

What to expect in your consultation

During your consultation you will receive a thorough assessment, considering history, physical examination and assessment of biomechanics. Following the assessment, your diagnosis and treatment options are clearly explained to you. Your treatment is chosen from a wide range of physical modalities demonstrated to reduce pain and disability in your particular presentation.

Along with hands-on treatment and rehabilitation exercise you will receive advice on how to best manage your injury at home or work, speeding up your recovery and minimizing the risk of recurrence. Together with appropriate medical care our skilled therapists will help you achieve the best possible outcome when suffering from musculoskeletal problems.

How physiotherapy helps

Physiotherapy is extremely effective for soft tissue strains and tears including muscle and joint related injuries. It is also very effective when there is a pinched or irritated nerve.

Problems may have been caused by high velocity sporting injuries, overstrains, repeated or postural overload type injuries or biomechanical related problems. A physiotherapist’s ability to diagnose the pathology and relate it to the mechanism of injury is one of the most significant advantages our physiotherapists offer.

Physiotherapists treat an extensive list of injuries. Our experienced physiotherapist will be able to quickly identify the most effective treatment plan for you.
