What is Physiotherapy/Osteopathy?
Physiotherapy and osteopathy combine a thorough understanding of human anatomy, biomechanics (human movement) and pathology (human injury and disease) to accurately diagnose your condition. The treatment and rehabilitation aims to help restore movement and function to enable you to return to previous levels of function and achieve your goals – from returning to work to high level sport.
What happens during Physiotherapy/Osteopathy?
  • Assessment – First we will take a detailed history of your complaint, we will then do a physical examination where we will complete a variety of tests including range of movement, muscle strength and joint tests.
  • Diagnosis – We will explain the diagnosis to you in a way that you understand. We will discuss your treatment options with you and give you an estimation of how long it will take.
  • Treatment  – This may consist of a variety of hands-on techniques including mobilization, manipulation, spinal realignment and deep tissue massage. Acupuncture and electrotherapy are also available.
  • Rehabilitation – You will be given a rehabilitation program that is tailored to your needs and progressed to enable you to achieve your optimum health and fitness.
  • Injury  Prevention – Restore and optimise function and prevent recurrence where possible.
Who is Physiotherapy/Osteopathy for?
Whatever your age, choice of lifestyle or sporting activity, therapy can help you overcome your pain or injury.  Self-referral has been proven to reduce the amount of time people are off sick and early intervention can be vital to prevent an acute problem becoming chronic.
