What Is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotheraists maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. In addition, the profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to stay at work while assisting them to remain independent for as long as possible.

The practice of physiotherapy is science-based. It takes a whole-person approach to health and well-being, including the patient's general lifestyle. The patient plays an essential role in their care through education, awareness, empowerment, and participation in treatment. Physiotherapy can benefit you at any age and can help you with back pain or sudden injuries, manage long-term medical conditions such as asthma, preparation for childbirth or sporting events.

Physiotherapy Treatment In Detail

Case History

The physiotherapist will take a detailed case history on your first visit to identify the structural issue causing your symptoms. It also allows us to understand your general health & well-being, diet, sleep patterns etc. We will then ask you detailed questions about your present condition, general health and past medical history.

Our team is committed to listening to your needs and respecting your wishes. Then we can provide you with an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan based on the information we collect.

Physiotherapy Examination

We will conduct a thorough and comprehensive physical examination, which includes a posture and movement assessment. Additionally, we may perform tests to determine how your joints and muscles perform.

Once we have all the information, the physiotherapist will discuss with you the likely cause or causes of the problem. Will will discuss with you what is causing your pain and why the physiotherapist believes you have got the issue in the first place, for example, work practices or postural issues.

Physiotherapy Treatment

We operate a multi discipline approach and may often use several methods to diagnose and treat you as no two individuals are alike. Our treatment methods are tailored to each individual, depending on their age, fitness levels, and exact diagnosis. Muscles, joints, nerves, and other soft tissue are stretched, moved, and manipulated gently by hands-on techniques that relieve tension, tightness, and pain.

Where your issues require further investigation, we have access to private diagnostic testing such as MRI, X-ray, and specialist consultants. They can help with the diagnosis of conditions outside our remit.

Physiotherapy Exercises

We’ve found that hands-on treatment combined with exercises and lifestyle advice works best. So don’t worry about remembering what we suggest as we write everything down for you in a simple, understandable format.

You will teach you how to bend and stretch your body, and the normal movement range your body can achieve. It is common for people to avoid these movements during daily activities due to pain or fear. We will remind your body of its capabilities through the exercises we teach.
