About Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapy team has more than 50 years combined of unrivalled expertise working with all types of musculoskeletal problems. We provide a unique service with comprehensive assessment, treatment and full rehabilitation. People choose to see us for various reasons, but they all have one thing in common – the desire to optimize their physical ability and ultimately improve their quality of life.

Whether helping a baby who is suffering with torticollis, a young swimmer looking to improve her performance, or a senior looking to return to his gardening activities post surgery – our life’s work is to help you get back to yours!

Any condition that prevents you from participating in your regular or sporting activities impacts your whole life. Receiving physiotherapy at the onset of a problem is encouraged to help accelerate the healing process, prevent worsening of an injury over time and get you back to living fully faster. Book your appointment today – we’ll get you on the road to recovery!

Treatment Plans

 We pride ourselves on maintaining an ‘old fashioned’ hands on approach.

Treatments may include any of the following, if appropriate and at the physiotherapists’ discretion:

Progressive exercise

Your treatment plan will include some prescribed exercises that will complement in-office treatment and help you make a faster recovery.

Mobilisation

Balance training, postural re-education and core stabilization exercises will also be a part of your physiotherapy treatment plan.

Specific soft tissue massage

Specific hands-on techniques used to put pressure on muscle tissue and mobilize/manipulate joints to decrease pain, muscle spasm, muscle tension or joint dysfunction.

Postural and biomechanical correction

Your physiotherapist has many techniques to treat your injury (release tight tissues, mobilize stiff joints, reduce inflammation, electrical modalities, acupuncture, etc.) but you will also have a role to play at home.

Electrotherapy & acupuncture

Acupuncture involves inserting single-use, sterilized needles along your body’s meridians to balance out your Qi (chee) to manage pain and inflammation and promote your body’s natural ability to heal.

ACUTE INJURIES

Prompt diagnosis and correct management of your injury will ensure a speedy recovery and rapid return to the activities you enjoy. Our physio team will help you through the early phase of recovery before guiding you with progressive exercise until you are fully fit. A premature return to strenuous activity before you are fully recovered can be detrimental, however tempting it may be. We will ensure you are ready to cope before you over-stretch yourself.

REPETITIVE / CHRONIC INJURIES

We all get niggles, aches and pains occasionally and optimistically think they will get better. Many do of course, but ignoring them for too long can allow them to become chronic injuries and much more difficult to resolve. It goes without saying, the sooner you seek help, the quicker you will recover.

It’s possible you may have a muscle pull, or a tendon or ligament sprain. All of these can be resolved with appropriate treatment, and expert advice from our team can help to prevent a recurrence of your injury.

POST-OPERATIVE REHABILITATION

Surgery alone will not automatically allow you to return to your normal activity levels.Correctly staged, progressive rehabilitation is essential to regain maximum potential and to prevent secondary stiffness or on-going weakness.Our primary aim is for you to be pain-free, as mobile as possible and to return to your normal lifestyle. Whether it is playing football, playing a regular round of golf, getting to the office for work or simply getting to the shops easily, we can help you achieve your goal!

YOUR APPOINTMENT

First consultations are usually up to one hour and subsequent appointments up to ½ hour. A programme of physiotherapy may be started, or if necessary, you can be referred to a consulting specialist in the appropriate field. Your GP will be kept informed of your treatment at all times.

We accept self-referral and GP referral to our department. If you have health insurance please obtain authorisation for treatment. Physiotherapy packages are offered following surgery with the NHS or other hospitals.
