Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is best defined as a multi-faceted profession that aims to rehabilitate and restore normal functional movements through the application of a wide range of evidence based practices. The holistic values of a physiotherapist are to treat injuries and illnesses so that their patients can live a life as close to normality as possible by decreasing pain and maximising functional abilities.

Physiotherapy can be subdivided into different types depending on the area or population group that has been affected. A musculoskeletal physiotherapist specialises in treating conditions that are related to joints, muscles and soft tissue injuries or conditions.

The specialist physiotherapists at sports and spinal are highly experienced in treating the following:-

  • Muscles injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Chronic pain
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Fractures
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatologic problems
  • Headaches
  • Back and pelvic pain related to pregnancy
  • Postural re-education

Physiotherapy treatment depends on the findings from an initial assessment. The assessment will determine how many treatment sessions are needed in order to restore mobility or to gain an increase in strength and range of movement so that movement is less restricted.

The sports and spinal physiotherapists will use a wide variety of treatment modalities to aid in the recovery of their patients.

Some treatment modalities used are:-

  • Exercise programmes
  • Acupuncture
  • Postural re-education
  • Taping and strapping
  • Manual therapy
  • Electrotherapy

The role of a physiotherapist is to base their assessment and treatment on clinical evidence and expert judgement. The physiotherapists at sports and spinal physio aim to facilitate their extensive experience with the most up to date clinical evidence based practice.

Their aims are:-

  • Decrease pain
  • Increase strength
  • Decrease swelling
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Restore normal movement
  • Optimise healing
  • Increase functional activities
  • Increase independence
  • Increase range of movement
