Studies show that fast access to treatment speeds up healing times. Professional sports teams, surgical wards and athletes already know this. Long term pain may stiffen the body and cause stress in other areas. Stiffness often drives inflammation because everything is so tight and such an effort.
It’s important to know that movement not only helps the muscles stay strong but keeps all our internal organs healthy. If your spine and rib cage are stiff, it’s harder to breathe and simple activities can be hard work. Blood pressure and heart rate may go up to compensate.
We will look to improve both your current fitness and function. Work with you with the aim of improving your overall well being. Small steps are all it takes to improve your general fitness and become pain-free. As well as working with sports and occupational injuries, our Physiotherapists have experience of working with the elderly, disabled and long term unwell.
