Patients attending the practice will receive a thorough assessment to allow the physiotherapist to establish a diagnosis and identify the cause of their condition.
The physiotherapist will then discuss the diagnosis and aims of treatment before formulating a specific treatment plan with the patient.
Usually a combination of “hands-on” treatments and exercise therapy is provided and if appropriate your physiotherapist will liaise with your GP or consultant about your on-going care.
The practice has a large purpose built hydrotherapy pool which allows patients to be treated and rehabilitated following surgery or injury. Hydrotherapy also enables patients with long standing problems to remain active and strong.
The pool is maintained at an optimum therapeutic temperature to help to relieve pain, increase muscle and joint flexibility and improve mobility.
The practice has two therapy rooms where our physiotherapists provide hands-on treatment including:
- Specific mobilisations of joints and soft tissue
- Pulsed Magnetic Treatment
Sports injury rehab
The practice also has a fully equipped gym which patients can access with their physiotherapist for rehabilitation purposes.
Acupuncture is one of the many skills employed within physiotherapy as part of an integrated approach to treat pain and inflammation. Our physiotherapists who provide acupuncture are members of the acupuncture association of chartered physiotherapists (AACP).
Pilates is an exercise system that is designed to improve balance, muscle strength flexibility and posture by focusing on stretching and strengthening the whole body. Our Pilates classes are taken by a physiotherapist who has undertaken training with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI).
