How We Can Help You
Let us work alongside you to understand your pain and your problems so together we can develop a plan to get you on the road to recovery. Each of our therapists has a wealth of experience and is extremely approachable. Just ask if you have any worries or concerns. Your plan will be individual to your starting point and goals and we will be with you every step of the way but do expect to have some work to do at home to get the most out of your sessions.
After the questions and time for you to add anything that is important to you, your physio will carry out the physical examination of the area of the pain and any other areas that they feel might be contributing to your problem. They will watch you moving, feel around the injured part and check how joints and muscles are functioning. Your job is to give them feedback about what you feel during the checks and please let them know if there is anything at all that you are unhappy about. You should be prepared that it is often useful and can be vital that the area is examined and you may be asked to undress to a degree. Please let your therapist know if this is a problem to you at all.
Wearing comfortable and loose-fitting clothing to appointments is often beneficial.
The years of experience that our physios have, gives them a huge toolbox of approaches to help you to recover and reach your full potential. There are likely to be several options suitable for your injury and we will talk to you about these options and what might work best for your individual situation.
With the ultimate aim of reducing your pain and restoring function in terms of strength and movement, some of the options we might consider include:
- Home exercises
- Manual Therapy/Hands on mobilisations
- Fascial release
- Postural correction
- Balance retraining
It would be very rare for a treatment plan not to include some hands-on treatment and a programme of exercises.
As your problems start to resolve, your treatments are likely to be less regular and may take the form of less hands-on treatment and more exploring and progressing of exercises and working with you to problem-solve any restrictions that remain. You are likely to have a programme of exercises which may be sent to you online and include videos so you are able to refresh your memory of these and be sure you are carrying them out correctly. Your physio may also direct you to other resources that they think might help your understanding of the problem longer term.
Full recovery is our end goal for you and we are delighted when you are again enjoying full fitness and regaining your full potential. We are here for you when you need us.
