Such an important question that many people ask and there is a very quick answer…Yes! Physiotherapy is a proven therapy for a multitude of conditions. Especially if you are feeling stiffness or pain in any muscles or joints. Even if you have had your issue for a long time Physiotherapy can be a great way to get a bit of relief but more importantly help you with your day to day function and help you to get back to enjoying life the way you want to. If you are still a bit unsure take the opportunity to organise a Free Call with one of our Physios to further explore how we can help you.
Some of the treatments involved in Physiotherapy can be hands-on in nature which may cause a slight bit of discomfort. It will never be more than a person can tolerate and is always under your control and guidance. The most important thing is that before any treatment is carried out, we will give you a clear reason and explanation of the treatment. We will also give you an understanding of what pain is, what causes it and how the body responds to it. This will give you great confidence in what we do, understanding your body and getting you back to your best.
Your initial assessment takes between 45 minutes to 1 hour and follow up appointments 30-45 minutes.
Yes. Our clinicians have treated thousands of people and helped them get over their aches, pains and injuries. From backs to shoulders to ankles. Any joint or muscle issues we can be sure to help. By giving you an understanding of the cause of the injury, discussing with you how your body heals and explaining the reason for the pain you are feeling you will have a deeper understanding of your body to allow us to help facilitate your improvements. If you want to discuss more just organise a Free Consultation Call with one of our physios.
No, you do not. Physios are experts in treating the body and you do not need a referral from your GP or wait for an appointment from your GP before starting Physio.
This is specific to your condition. Our aim is to get you feeling better and healthier and back to the goals you have set as quickly as possible and there is no set amount of sessions that fit as each person’s individual presentation is different. Your physio is going to be in the best position to discuss with you the number of sessions needed and over what period of time and put in place a plan of care for you to book to facilitate the full rehab process.
Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothing that will help to facilitate an assessment and for you to be comfortable trying some of the exercises for your rehab. Keep in mind where your injury is so to allow our therapists an ability to assess. E.g do not wear jeans if you have a knee injury.
Definitely. Physiotherapy can help with screening for potential injuries and reduce the effects. We can help you with recovery from exercise to keep you in top condition. We can assess the state of your muscles and joints now and put in place a prehab programme to help you stay in tip top shape.
Physiotherapy incorporate a range of treatment options. The whole process in itself is best fit for assessing what you need and implementing a full treatment plan with you. The therapies range from joint mobilisation, joint release, soft tissue release, myofascial release and massage. What is important is the end goal not the means by getting there. What we do not use is machines or needles. We believe its important to instil long lasting change that you will be able to continue to maintain independently which these interventions would not facilitate.
