PHYSIOTHERAPY

What is Physiotherapy and what to expect from your treatment

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when affected by an injury, illness or disability. It can also help to reduce your risk of injury in the future.

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, neck, shoulder and peripheral joint (knees/hips/ankle) pain and sports injuries.

Some of the main approaches to expect from your treatment include:

  • Education and advice about things that can affect your daily lives, such as posture and correct lifting or carrying techniques to help prevent injuries as well as effective strategies to manage pain and understand the risks associated with injury.

  • Tailored exercise and physical activity advice – exercises will be recommended to improve your flexibility, mobility, and to strengthen specific parts of your body especially following a sporting or overuse injury.

  • Manual therapy is only part of the treatment modalities used where the physiotherapist uses their hands to help relieve pain and stiffness, and to encourage better movement of the body.

Please note that we do NOT use electrotherapy (i.e. ultrasound/laser) or other similar passive treatments due to their limited to nul eveidence and science based  effectiveness.

SPORTS MASSAGE

What is Sports Massage and what you should expect

Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity but not limited to athletes or regularly active people. Soft tissue is connective tissue that includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (a form of connective tissue that lines and ensheathes the other soft tissues). Sports massage is helpful in soft tissue injuries that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

Sports Massage alone is not always enough to get rid of chronic pains and aches and standalone is not effective to treat injuries. During your session, your Physiotherapist will take a brief medical history and if any issues are identified you will be provided with appropriate advice.
