Physiotherapy and Treatments
When done well, physiotherapy restores full movement and function after the body is affected by injury or illness. It also provides mobility and pain relief to those with a disability. Not only employed as a treatment, physiotherapy can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future by strengthening your joints and muscles for general everyday living.
What To Expect:
Each physiotherapy session is approximately 30 minutes long. Our specialist will thoroughly examine the affected area to determine the root cause of your pain or discomfort. Although we use manual physiotherapy, we also employ assessment tools such as state-of-the-art ultrasound scanning technology and data-led dynamometer strength and movement testing to confirm the diagnosis. Our experts then build a recovery plan that allows you to resume your favourite activities – whether you’re a sportsperson or not.
We are as keen as you are to ensure a quick recovery. That’s why we offer a tangible physiotherapy treatment plan that you can implement to prevent the injury from reoccurring. Bring comfortable clothing (like gym gear) to your session that you can move around in and to allow the therapist to assess your injury. If you can, please bring along any previous scans or reports of your injury or previous injuries, as these may help assist in an accurate diagnosis.
