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
