Chartered physiotherapy and Sport Injuries
We see physiotherapy as a way of relieving pain, optimising physical function, and ultimately improving performance, whatever form that takes. We specialise in treating any problem related to muscles, bones or tendons. Injuries can occur due to a specific traumatic incident, such as twisting an ankle whilst playing football or dislocating a shoulder when falling off a bike or whiplash after a car accident can be successfully treated in our clinic. Injury can also occur from simply putting the body under too much strain before it has developed the strength to tolerate it, for example trying to run too far too soon.
On your first visit, you will be asked about your current problem and the impact on your life and activities. Your physiotherapist will want to know about previous injuries, your general medical heath, and your physical goals. They will then perform a physical examination to establish what anatomical structure/s are the source of your pain, and what underlying factors might be contributing to the problem, such as weakness or biomechanical issues. From here, your physio will discuss the findings and consider the treatment options with you to achieve your specific goals. The treatment plan is tailored to you specifically. You are unique to us. Follow-up sessions will continue the treatment process and any adjustments, based on how you present, can be made to the plan.
