What We Treat will have links on specific pathologies which will be updated periodically and then archived for your information and reference. Below is a brief summary of some more common complaints.
This includes muscular aches, sciatica, disc bulge or pain referred into the arms and legs. Symptoms may also include tingling, numbness or weakness.
Thankfully, most back pain has a mechanical element to it. We can help you modify your daily stresses and strains so that you can be more comfortable in the work place and at sport.
When problems are more structural, such as disc prolapse, education on avoidance of the 'wrong thing' is as important as anything else. If problems don't settle, we have experts I the field to refer you to and get you sorted.
Generalised Joint Problems
Effective in the treatment of painful, swollen joints and for those diagnosed with osteo-arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Management, mobility and strength are paramount in dealing with these unpleasant conditions'.we can't cure you but we can help you make the best of what you have.
Treatment of neck pain which can also be felt into the shoulders and arms, which can be due to posture, stiff joints or whiplash. Also effective in the treatment of headaches, dizziness and vertigo.
Where do we start?? We treat injuries such as acute ankle sprains, hamstring tears as well as knee ligament or cartilage damage. Long term problems such as recurring tennis elbow, faulty foot biomechanics, Achilles tendon overstrain, shoulder strains and neck sprains can also be helped but it's important for you to be informed in why these things take a little longer to get fixed. This will help avoid frustration for you, and it's no all gloomy as often there are ways to keep you going in sport and exercise.
We hope to also send you away not just with a fixed injury but also to give you guidance on avoid recurrence and improve your conditioning again with the aim of avoiding re-injury.
We work closely with orthopaedic surgeons and sports physicians if any further intervention is required.
Work-related pain through prolonged postures is common place these days. This includes low back, neck and arm pain as well as troublesome conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. Sports people also can suffer from overuse injuries such as painful shoulders, golfers and tennis elbow, shin splints and inflamed tendons as discussed above. Often these will need biomechanical analysis and a custom made programme be put in place to maximise recovery. This often includes manual therapy to stretch and mobilise and then exercises to keep improvements for the long term.
Post-operative or Post-fracture
We are able to help reduce pain and swelling, strengthen muscles, improve function and return to normal movement after more traumatic events such as fractures and operations of varying nature.
It's easy to label most of us as having poor posture when we develop a painful problem'but what does this mean? Is it when we are sitting or standing or doing an activity? It is potentially all of the above. It just means that we are not optimising use of our muscle-joint system and as a result, an overstrain has occurred leading to pain from a given tissue or structure.
It is treated with assessment of work station set-up, advice and exercises and other physiotherapy techniques.
