Physiotherapy treats pain, stiffness, instability and weakness in your soft tissues. I don’t just treat the symptoms but look to diagnose and treat the root cause too!
During the assessment I will take time to discuss all aspects of your problem to ensure I understand the complete picture.
Treatment may then involve some manual therapy and movement re-education, but will always involve a self-management programme to optimise the way your body is working and help prevent similar problems in the future.
I will always discuss your treatment and goals with you to develop a plan that works for you and your lifestyle. Whilst in the majority of cases exercises are key, this does not mean me sending you home with an unmanageable number to do every day!
Common problems I treat include:
- Sports-related injuries
- Neck and back pain
- Work-related pains
Post operatione.g. Knee or hip replacements, ACL repair
Treatment may include any of the following:
- ‘Hands-on’ therapy
- Movement analysis and alteration
- Postural advice
- Exercise and rehabilitation
