Conditions

Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the health and well-being of individuals. Our friendly and professional physiotherapists identify and maximise movement potential through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation.


Physiotherapists help and treat people of all ages with physical problems caused by illness, accident or ageing. Their role in sport is vital, to return an exerciser to full fitness using the safest and quickest methods




Spinal Problems

Back and neck pain are very common problems with most of us experiencing them some time in our life. Most spinal pain is a result of temporary damage to ligaments, muscles or discs and responds well to physiotherapy. Conditions treated include:

  • Prolapsed Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Ligament strain
  • Spinal degeneration
  • Whiplash
  • Muscle tension.



Joint and Muscle Problems

Joint conditions can affect hips, knees, feet, shoulders, elbows or hands and respond very well to physiotherapy management. This can involve manual treatment to restore mobility, treatment to reduce pain and exercises to strengthen and improve function and balance. Whether the cause of the condition is a sports injury or ‘wear and tear’ we can help you to recover as quickly as is possible and will aim to restore you to your normal level of activity. Joint problems may present as:

  • Arthritis
  • Cartilage Injuries, wear and tear
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Joint sprains or strains
  • Tendinitis
  • Golfers Elbow
  • Bursitis



Sports Injuries

Injuries sustained when training or taking part in sport can be very frustrating. Early diagnosis is essential for successful and prompt resolution of the problem. Sports specific rehabilitation can help with conditions such as

  • Joint dislocation
  • Muscle spasms
  • Ligament sprains
  • Biceps tendonitis
  • Groin strain
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Fractures
  • Muscle strains/tears
  • Foot pain (metatarsalgia)
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Shin splints
  • Meniscal tears



Work Injuries

These are often called repetitive strain injuries (RSI) or work-related upper limb disorders. Symptoms usually present as pain from muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse. The condition mostly affects parts of the upper body, such as the forearm, elbow, wrist, hands, neck and shoulders, and may also cause stiffness and swelling.
Physiotherapy can help employers and staff to establish safe working practices and manage health issues, thus reducing sickness absence and improving staff retention.
