Physiotherapy aims to reduce or eliminate pain and maximise the overall health and wellbeing of a person. The skills of a physiotherapist lie in analysing how you move, sit, walk and run and through this identifying any abnormalities which may lead to pain or injury.
A thorough initial assessment will be carried out which will involve discussing your symptoms as well as an examination of the problem area. A treatment plan is discussed and agreed, with a view to getting you better quickly and back to doing the things you love.
Your treatment is likely to include:
Manual Therapy: These are hands-on techniques that can vary from very gentle fine touch movements to deeper tissue and joint mobilisation techniques.
Exercise Therapy: These can range from simple stretches to a more comprehensive programme. Exercises will be tailored to fit around your needs and lifestyle.
Electrotherapy: Ultrasound and TENS electrotherapy treatment can be used to aid healing and reduce pain and swelling.
Advice: This will include the advice and information needed for you to be able to help yourself speed up your recovery and prevent a recurrence of the problem.
