What we provide

Types of treatment and costs

Your first time in clinicPhysio pointing out problems with the spine on a model skeleton

We take a lot of care to understand the nature of your complaint. After a detailed case history all patients undergo physical examination to establish your general state of health. This may include taking your blood pressure or testing your reflexes, as well as examining the quality and range of movement of your muscles and joints. We will not undertake treatment if we feel your condition does not lend itself to manual therapy. Instead we may refer you to your GP or even to hospital if we suspect something more serious.

Treatment Methods

We use a variety of ‘hands on’ physical therapy treatments. Amongst others, these include massage, manipulation and acupuncture as well as more traditional stretching and mobilisation techniques. We also provide exercise and rehabilitation programmes to support you own recovery at home and reduce the likelihood of your condition returning.

OsteopathyOsteopath performing a technique for relieving shoulder pain

Osteopaths are primary health care providers. They are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, although they are more commonly known for their treatment of bad backs.

Aches and pains are a way of telling us that something is wrong with our bodies. Osteopaths use a range manipulation, mobilisation and soft tissue techniques to restore normal bodily function. Once our bodies function normally aches and pains go away. Osteopaths also provide help and advice to promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

Osteopathy is safe, effective and regulated by the General Osteopathic Council. Medical research and NHS studies support osteopathy as an effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a manual therapy designed to restore normal movement and function in patients who are ill, injured or disabled. Physiotherapists are trained healthcare professionals and in the NHS work as part of a multi-disciplined team of doctors, consultants and surgeons. Physiotherapy is often the treatment of choice for doctors and GP’s for aches and pains and general musculoskeletal complaints.

Physiotherapy uses a variety of techniques including manipulation, massage, and electrotherapy such as TENS and Ultrasound. It also provides help to improve aspects of general health by giving advice on lifestyle, diet and exercise as part of its approach to holistic patient care.

AcupuncturePhysiotherapist performing acupuncture on a patient

There are two types of acupuncture available today; Chinese and Western. Western acupuncture, or British Medical Acupuncture is the type practiced at our clinic and is scientifically proven for the treatment of muscle hypertonia (cramps and guarding spasm) and for analgesia (pain relief).

Western medical acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles and uses knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology and the principles of evidence based medicine. Although western medical acupuncture has evolved from Chinese acupuncture it does not acknowledge the concepts of ‘Yin and Yang’ and the circulation of ‘qi energy’.

Western medical acupuncture is principally used by conventional healthcare practitioners as part of an overall treatment plan. Acupuncture can be highly effective in reducing tissue tension and pain as part of Osteopathic or Physiotherapy treatment programme due to its positive effects on the nervous system.

Sports and Remedial Massage

Sports massage is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissue including muscles, tendons and ligaments. There are many health benefits associated with remedial or sports massage including improvements in circulation and removal of metabolic waste. Furthermore, soft tissue therapy can help breakdown fibrosity and scar tissue and improve recovery times as well as relieving the symptoms of repetitive strain injuries, sprains and tension fatigue.
