Physiotherapy Treatment

As “hands on” physiotherapists we use techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, acupuncture, electrotherapy and more. These treatment methods reduce scar tissue, relieve muscle spasm, reduce tightness and accelerate healing.

Sports Injuries Rehabilitation

Usually involves damage to muscles, tendons or ligaments. Early Treatment by trained specialists is key. We aim to return you to full function and pre-injury sporting condition as quickly as possible.

Neck and Back Pain

There are many reasons for neck and back pain. Possible causes include poor posture, degenerative wear and tear, poor lifting technique or following a fall or injury.

Whiplash Injury Treatment

Whiplash is a neck injury typically caused by a sudden and forceful back-and-forth movement of the head and neck, commonly associated with car accidents. It can result in symptoms such as neck pain, stiffness and headaches. Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in the management of whiplash injuries by addressing both pain relief and rehabilitation. We use a combination of techniques, including manual therapy, exercises, and modalities like heat or ice, to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and restore normal neck range of motion.

Biomechanical Assessments

Our biomechanical assessment offers a thorough evaluation of your posture, joint alignment, limb lengths, and gait, allowing us to uncover underlying issues in your anatomy and physiology that may be contributing to persistent symptoms or nagging injuries. This detailed analysis serves as a foundation for personalized treatment plans, helping you achieve lasting relief and optimal physical well-being.

Injury and Surgery Rehabilitation

Whether you’ve suffered from a catastrophic sports injury or finally had that knee replacement surgery. Our Physiotherapists are able to provide a combination of hands on manual therapy and personalised rehabilitation program to get back on your feet.

Clinical Pilates Classes

Our physiotherapists are trained in Clinical Pilates which has been specifically developed in conjunction with physiotherapy principles and research, and incorporate these techniques within their treatment sessions.

Arthritis and Joint Care Management

Physiotherapy can significantly benefit individuals dealing with arthritis by providing targeted exercises and techniques to improve joint flexibility, reduce pain, and enhance overall function. Through a tailored rehabilitation program, physiotherapists empower arthritis sufferers to regain mobility, manage pain, and maintain a higher quality of life.

Clinical Acupuncture

Fine needles are inserted in specific points to provide relief from pain, taking on board both Western and Traditional Chinese medicine approaches. All of our physiotherapists are members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists

Electrotherapy Treatments

A variety of techniques including Ultrasound, Interferential therapy, Shortwave and TENS are used to relieve pain and enhance healing.

Tension Headaches

May be caused by joint stiffness, tightness or spasm in the neck muscles.  In these cases physiotherapy may be appropriate and helpful in resolving such symptoms. Treatment techniques would be the same as described in the “neck/whiplash” section.
