Physiotherapy is a university level Science degree for the diagnosis, treatment and management of all musculoskeletal conditions. Our physiotherapists will be able to diagnose the straightforward strain or sprain, or the more complex neurological / rheumatological / pathological conditions which may need to be referred to an appropiate consultant.
All of our physiotherapists are Chartered and have completed extensive advanced post-graduate training. We use evidence based medicine, using international standards, to assess, diagnose and treat musculo-skeletal conditions. When we diagnose, we design a treatment plan which is appropiate not only for your condition, but will also suit your personality.
For example, if an individual with a complex and chronic low back problem, has poor motivation to exercise, we will design a programme that will not only involve hands on treatment, but will also include a personalised approach to exercise which could be in the gym doing circuits / TRX / ball – roller programmes, or in the studio doing pilates / yoga or a combination of both. It may be that the individual has medium to high stress, which is exacerbating their chronic condition, and in that case, their programme will have a relaxation – meditation bias.
All our clients are encouraged to improve their cardio-vascular fitness, which is one of the most potent anti-inflammatories that is non-medical. Our Mission statement is to provide outstanding musculo-skeletal care which caters for the individual in a holistic manner.
