Physiotherapy Can Help

Physiotherapy can benefit people of all ages and activity levels, encouraging us to stay flexible, pain-free, and active, independent lifestyle. The Physiotherapist will provide specific advice, treatment, and guidance during your rehabilitation or injury. As we age, our bodies can get stiff and lose the ability to move freely and easily; A Physiotherapist works at improving the way the body works. Often by using hands-on methods that increase joint and spine range of movement. Once the body starts to move well again, confidence returns, which encourages increased activity levels, reducing pain by enhancing muscle strength and increasing blood flow, washing away pain and discomfort.

Studies on Physiotherapy have shown that early treatment (often within a week) can positively influence the healing rate. Physiotherapy uses a wide range of treatments and techniques that help to reduce pain and improve movement. Treatments can include relaxing deep tissue massage, active mobilisations, spinal manipulation, modern ultrasound electrotherapy and bespoke exercises. Physiotherapists effectively treat various problems such as low back pain, arthritis, falls and fractures through knee pain. Physiotherapy can help reduce pain and inflammation quickly, keep people out of the hospital, and reduce the need for routine operations. Physiotherapy often reduces the need to see a GP for pain killers or further orthopaedic referral’. Although we will refer to other specialists such as Osteopaths, Gp’s or surgeons if required.
