Why come to see a Physiotherapist?
Physiotherapists are trained to diagnose problems in the joints and soft tissues of the body. A comprehensive assessment and treatment plan for your particular problem will be performed. Physiotherapy provides a wide range of treatments to relieve pain, promote relaxation and restore movement. If you are prone to injuries preventive advice can also be offered.
What conditions can be helped?
A wide variety of aches and pains can be successfully treated including amongst many others:
- * Back pain/ sciatica/ ‘slipped disc’
- * Neck pain (with or without arm pain)
- * Frozen Shoulders
- * Whiplash injury
- * Sports injuries
- * Tendonitis pains
What will Physiotherapy entail?
The initial session is the Assessment. This consists of the subjective aspect (lots of questions being asked) to build a clearer picture, followed by the objective aspect. The latter could be referred to as the ‘physical’ assessment. This then allows a diagnosis to be made.
What does treatment consist of?
Following the assessment, an honest and understandable, evidence-based clinical diagnosis will be given. Depending on the problem, treatments may include any of the following:
- * Mobilisations
- * Manipulations
- * Specific exercises to improve function
- * Core stability training (Pilates based)
- * Traction
- * Electrotherapy
- * Manual therapy eg. Myofascial release, soft tissue massage
- * Advice and reassurance
