Physiotherapy

 

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy treatments are focused on working to restore movement and function when your body is affected by injury, illness or disability. Regular physiotherapy can also help to reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.

There are many daily influences that can bring about damaging changes in the body without us even realising. For example, in this modern age, office work has become the norm and with it extended periods of sitting down.

Longer periods sitting, especially in the wrong seat, can cause many muscle tightness issues or spinal problems.

Scars, trauma, strains, posture and work conditions have a big influence on our movement patterns, the way our muscles work, the position of our joints, the tension on the nerves, the pressure on the discs and mobility of organs.

Physiotherapy aims to regain balance and free you from pain and strains.

Your physiotherapist will use a range of techniques according to your personal needs.

Your physio can stretch and smooth muscles, strengthen and rejuvenate your back and neck, improve your posture and gait and advise you on biomechanics.

Your physio may also use Kinesio tape to complement your treatment and support a speedy recovery.

 

Conditions treated with Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can be helpful for people of all ages with a wide range of health conditions, including problems affecting the:

  • bones, joints and soft tissue – such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and sports injuries
  • brain or nervous system – such as movement problems resulting from a stroke, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s
  • heart and circulation – such as rehabilitation after a heart attack
  • lungs and breathing – such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis

Physiotherapy can improve your physical activity while helping you to prevent further injuries.

Thanks so much for all your help with my aches and pains. It has made such an improvement and I appreciate it very much.
