physio yourself back to wellness

physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental disabilities. Our physiotherapists work with you to promote your health and well being.

physiotherapy

Physiotherapy uses various healing treatments such as exercise, mobilisation, soft tissue manipulation and in some cases the use of electrotherapy to promote healing and well being.

Our aim is to encourage and support the return to normal following illness, surgery, disease or trauma and can also be helpful during and after pregnancy.

Whether your problem is a sprained ankle, back pain, a stroke, chest problems, women’s health, injury at work or many other different conditions, we can offer the right support.

The physiotherapy session

The Physiotherapist will take a detailed history of your condition together with any relevant past medical history.

A physical assessment will then be made to determine the clinical diagnosis of your problem. The physiotherapist will discuss with you a proposed treatment plan and will give you an estimate as to the length of treatment required and hopeful outcome of your treatment.

The initial assessment will probably last up to one hour and subsequent treatment sessions will last between 20 and 40 minutes. You may also be given an exercise programme to follow between treatments.

Please feel free to ask questions and advice about your treatment and prevention in the future.

The outcome of physiotherapy

We hope that our specific recommendations can easily be incorporated into your everyday exercise routine to maintain wellness and lead to a happy healthy lifestyle.

For those experiencing muscle stiffness, physio stimulates the blood flow in the hardened veins and allows the deposits of lactic acid to drain away naturally.

If mobility has become restricted and painful, physiotherapy can alleviate the source of the pain and restore wellbeing.

Our physiotherapist has extensive training and knowledge of the body’s anatomy, function mobility and enables you to develop a level of fitness, which should be free from pain or discomfort for a healthier lifestyle.

pregnancy & posture

Many women experience aches & pains before and after childbirth, but don’t think anything can be done about it. Our specialist Women’s Physiotherapist can help with treatment of pelvic pain in pregnancy, back pain including sciatica, thoracic pain, rib pain and hip pain. Treatment of the pelvic floor is also important, and retraining of these muscles can help with pelvic floor dysfunction and bladder problems.

Pregnancy can take its toll on the body. To ensure your well-being often means becoming more informed about what is truly good to support you and taking the right action to follow our course of treatment. Our physiotherapist will offer advice, support and encouragement.
