Physiotherapists treat patients with physical problems resulting from injury, illness, ageing or disability. A Physiotherapist can help people of all ages including children, the elderly and people with sports injuries.
Physiotherapy includes the treatment of a variety of common problems such as backache, neck and shoulder pain. A range of skills and techniques can be used to treat problems, including manipulation and massage, stretches and exercises, electrotherapy treatments, Acupuncture and advice on posture and work-related mechanical problems.
Here at Acupuncture & Physiotherapy Practice our Physiotherapists helps promote their patients’ health and well-being and assists the rehabilitation process by developing and restoring body systems and devising and reviewing treatment programmes.
Our Physiotherapists will work with you to identify and improve your movement and function and provide you with advice on how to avoid further injury or pain.
Acupuncture originated in China many centuries ago and involves inserting very fine needles into the skin at specific points called Acupuncture points. These points lie on channels or meridians within the body and many points have specific functions for helping not only painful muscle and joint problems, but other conditions too. Acupuncture can help your joint, back and neck pain, and can be used to treat problems such as headaches, migraines, skin conditions, stress and anxiety, menstrual and urinary symptoms.
Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is part of a holistic system of medicine that takes into account your thoughts, emotions, and lifestyle as well as your physical state. Acupuncture points are used to re-energise, redress and balance the body to bring about the desired result. This may include pain relief, relaxation, or a more efficient immune or digestive system.
If you are uncertain whether you require Physiotherapy, acupuncture or a combination of both to treat your condition, please contact the Practice to discuss this matter. We are only too pleased to advise individuals on the best course of treatment to take.
Shockwave therapy is a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain and musculoskeletal injuries. As a relatively new treatment modality, it is proven and backed up by a number of successful clinical studies. A shockwave is an intense, short energy wave that travels faster than the speed of sound whilst extracorporeal refers to the transmission of shockwave from outside the body. Physiological effects of this treatment demonstrated positive effects on the healing of tissue and as a result, the technology has been utilised in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries ever since!
- Proven to reduce pain by more than 60%
- A new and exiting modality revolutionising treatment outcomes
- Fast and long-lasting pain relief
- Non-invasive treatment – no surgery, no injections
- Low-cost solution for chronic pain
- Acoustic waves generated by Shockwave trigger biological effects which lead to faster and long-term healing and regeneration of the tissue.
