When diagnosing the cause of your complaint, we focus on both the physical and cognitive causes of pain and restricted movement. Our ‘big-picture’ approach takes into account any work, social or stress related issues which may be contributing to your physical problem. We will work with you to identify and help change patterns of activity which have contributed to the problem in the first place.
Your therapist will work with you using a variety of manual techniques that enable them to focus on your specific condition, pain points and areas of restricted movement. Depending on your complaint, your physical therapist will use a range of orthopaedic assessment, diagnostic and treatment techniques which include massage, mobilisations, manipulations, stretching and resistance training. Rehabilitation and prevention of reoccurrence forms an integral part of your treatment. Where beneficial, your therapist will also create a personal stretching, strengthening and core stability plan for you to follow at home to help with your return to full health and reduce the risk of re-injury.
Following your free fifteen-minute assessment, your first therapy session will typically last for one hour to allow for an in-depth client history review, postural analysis and orthopaedic testing. This helps us to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and propose the best course of treatment for you. Subsequent sessions, if required, will take 45 minutes.
