Physiotherapy Treatments

Physiotherapy is an evidence based approach to assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries or dysfunction.

Manual Therapy

Joint and spinal mobilisation and manipulation.

Massage Therapy

Traditional - classic therapeutic techniques designed to release stress and promote relaxation and healing.

Deep Tissue - this treatment requires greater knowledge and experience from the therapist, so that the maximum depth and pressure can be delivered for the most beneficial effects.

Rehabilitation - programs for improving strength, balance, co-ordination, proprioception, endurance and flexibility.

Electrical Therapy (Ultrasound)

Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment that is used by therapists over the last 50years to treat soft tissue injuries.

K Taping

K Taping supports almost the entire spectrum of physiotherapy treatments, including back problems, muscle tension, spasm and lymphatic drainage.

It is also used in competitive and professional sport for treatment, prevention and pre-training preparation.

Suitable Conditions

The use of massage to treat work and sports injuries is widespread now, thanks to a better understanding of how massage works.

Even more important is the use of massage as a preventative during sports training and competition to ensure the muscles are well balanced, smooth and relaxed when resting, toned and strong in action.

Should injury occur, massage after initial first aid treatment helps the damaged tissue to heal quickly and correctly with the minimum of scar tissue, adhesions and loss of mobility.

Good thorough massage after sport ensures that the muscles are relieved of stiffness and soreness.

Conditions such as low back pain and upper limb disorders like tennis elbow, golfers elbow, sprains, strains and cartilage problems etc. can respond well to massage and manipulation.

The knowledge of anatomy and physiology and the need for good posture passed on from the therapist to patient can also lead to a more sensible approach to healthy work practice and the pursuit of a chosen sport so avoiding over use and damage to joints and soft tissues.

Arthritic Conditions

There are many forms of arthritis. As yet there is no complete cure for these conditions, but symptoms may be eased, increasing the range of movement available and reducing pain and discomfort.

Many other conditions including general and specific pain relief, convalescence, post stroke, etc., can also benefit from remedial massage and gentle joint manipulation where applicable.

Massage is recommended by the Arthritic Association.

Stress Related Disorders

It is estimated by the medical profession that 80% of conditions are stress related, from headaches, digestive problems to generalised discomfort due to tension, from back pain induced by physical stress brought on by habitual misuse, to heart attacks brought on by overeating, drinking, smoking and lack of exercise.

All the above conditions could benefit from massage treatment, which brings relaxation to the tissues and also imbues a deep feeling of well being and of relaxation - sense of letting go.

Massage is now slowly being reintroduced into hospitals where its benefits can be measured scientifically. Research has been carried out at the Charing Cross hospital involving massage therapy for cardiac patients.

They found that massage lowered blood pressure in very agitated patients and kept it lowered for far longer than they could have anticipated. It stimulates the circulation, reduced anxiety levels and also helped people to sleep when tablets had failed to work.

Many people have forgotten how it feels to be truly relaxed. Massage can put you back in touch with the feeling of well being that is possible when tension is released.
