The term ‘Physiotherapy’ encompasses the treatment of a multitude of conditions and injuries affecting the Musculoskeletal system. How the injury or condition is managed will depend very much on the individual physiotherapist and their philosophy of treatment

The all-important physiotherapy assessment should identify the injured structures and the underlying cause of the problem to enable a prescriptive and individual treatment programme to be formulated. This overall physiotherapeutic management will initially involve manual therapy to promote healing of the injured structures and offload the underlying pathology, together with an active rehabilitation programme to address the underlying cause of symptoms that was established in the assessment

Your Physiotherapist will use clinical reasoning and expertise to decide on the most effective and appropriate manual therapy for your injury. These techniques may include:

  • Joint mobilisations and manipulation
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Soft tissue release
  • Myofascial release
  • Dry Needling
  • Acupuncture
  • Muscle Energy techniques
  • strapping
  • kineseotaping
  • passive stretching
