These disorders may be as a result of injury, ageing, accidents, congenital issues or habitual postures. Physiotherapists as experts of movement and function use evidence based practices and treatments.

It is useful for a number of problems that affect the muscles, tendons and bones. Remedial massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes.

Shockwave therapy is an ideal treatment for musculoskeletal injuries, reliving acute and chronic pain as well as assisting to speed up your recovery.

Dry Needling

During the course of your treatment, your physiotherapist may incorporate techniques such as dry needling to help with muscle relaxation, relieve muscle pain and restore normal muscle function. If you are experiencing muscle soreness or tightness – or both – dry needling may be an effective treatment for you. Dry needling is a treatment technique that uses micro-fine, single-use, stainless steel needles to relieve pain and tension.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of specific exercises in a warm pool instructed by an aquatic physiotherapist. This provides the benefits of warmth, increasing circulation and decreasing pain; buoyancy, which helps to enable patients to weight-bear more easily with less stress on joints; resistance, which provides a work-out for the muscles of the body; and a non-impact environment to improve cardiorespiratory fitness.
