Get better. Stay better.
Physiotherapy is a fast and safe way to diagnose and treat injuries involving the neurological and musculoskeletal system. Physiotherapists provide services that develop, maintain and restore people’s maximum movement and functional ability. They can help people at any stage of life, when movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, diseases, disorders, conditions or environmental factors.
Can a physio solve my problem?
Here's an example of some conditions we can treat:
- Soft tissue muscle or joint injuries.
- Low back or neck pain.
- Orthopaedic surgery or stroke rehabilitation.
Back pain and neck pain for example are extremely common complaints, with 80% of adults expected to experience such symptoms within their lifetime. We have highly specialised physiotherapists who have years of experience treating spinal pain.
The causes of back and neck pain can vary. Sometimes injury results from direct trauma that may occur when lifting a heavy object, after a fall or from direct impact, such as a road traffic accident. Other times it may result without obvious cause or from a fairly innocuous movement. The good news is that serious disease or injury is very rare with the spine which is inherently strong and difficult to damage. Therefore X-rays or imaging of the spine are not generally necessary as they will not highlight the source of pain or change how we treat you. In the majority of cases, it is likely that a ligament sprain or muscle strain has occurred which cannot be detected with scanning. Whether you have acute or chronic symptoms, it would be appropriate to be assessed by one of our physiotherapists to help advise you on the best way to manage your symptoms, learn the best way to move, pace your daily activity and improve your posture.
