What physiotherapy treatments are available?
Whether you have a simple ache or pain, sports injury, whiplash, low back pain or neck pain, we have a physiotherapy treatment plan that will get you back on track. Whenever choosing the correct course of physio treatment for your particular problem you will have a thorough physiotherapy assessment beforehand. This may include looking at areas which you feel are unconnected, however sometimes these areas can be linked and ensuring these are looked at will ensure you receive the correct physiotherapy input. In certain circumstances acupuncture may be offered to aid the release of muscle spasm and control pain.
Physiotherapy techniques that may be used include:
- Posture correction exercise regimes.
- Sports massage, acupuncture, instrument assisted soft tissue massage for the release of soft tissue tension, muscle tightness and pain relief.
- Stretches and myofascial release to overcome muscle tension and muscle spasm.
- Ultrasound and scar massage to soften scar tissue.
- Acupuncture for management of pain and muscle tension.
- Joint mobilisations and manipulations for releasing joint stiffness and improving mobility.
- Corrective taping using kinesiotape or leukotape for posture correction, muscle tension and biofeedback.
- Gait re-education (correction of walking patterns) may also be used when necessary.
- Advice and education will also be given to allow you to understand the problem in its entirety and continue with self-management strategies in between appointments.
(Note: Occasionally new techniques may become available which may not be listed here, and if appropriate and after discussion these may also be used.)
COVID-19 Update 28/01/2022:

• All initial face to face appointments will require a Covid Screening Questionnaire to be filling in prior to attendance which will be sent via email before the session.
• Physio AND patient to wear a Facemask during the session.
• Appointments will be spaced with 15 mins gap in between to allow for cleaning and no patient cross over.

• Hand sanitizer will be used on entering and exiting the clinic.
• When driving to the clinic patients are asked to wait in the car until being called in. If walking then please do use the reception area.
Why is the clinic still requesting a Facemask to worn?
Due to the close proximity of the sessions, facemasks are still required at PhysioFitness to enhance the safety of both the clinician and all patients including many vulnerable patients that attend the clinic. The physio wearing a facemask will help protect you, due to the many different close contacts a physio has during day to day work. You wearing a facemask will help protect the physio so they can carry on working and ensure you get the best possible care.
If you wish to discuss your case or have any questions or concerns regarding any of the above information then please do feel free to contact the clinic.
