Conditions We Treat

Back and Neck Pain:

Neck PainSpinal pain is a very common complaint in the modern age. It can vary from a mild ache or some stiffness, to severe and shooting pain that makes movement, and even sleeping, very difficult. This may be caused by muscle tightness, joint stiffness, bulging discs and nerve irritation or poor posture. Physiotherapy treatment at The Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic can help with the reduction of pain and the restoration of movement.

Joint Pain:

Joint PainThe joints in the body where 2 or more bones meet are subject to stresses and strains such as weight bearing, overuse, direct injury, muscle imbalance, poor posture and arthritic change. Physiotherapy treatment at The Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic is effective for the reduction of pain and inflammation, and the rehabilitation of stiff or injured joints.

Soft Tissue Injuries:

Soft Tissue Injuries Soft tissues may be injured by direct force, overuse or misuse. Sprains and strains, pulls and tears can affect the muscle bellies and their tendons throughout the body. A consultation with our physiotherapists at The Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic will help you with immediate advice on how to offload the affected part, assist in the reduction of pain and inflammation, speed up the recovery process and return you to your function with an exercise program to stretch and strengthen affected muscles.

Sports Injuries:

Sports InjuriesAt The Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic we see a wide range of sports injuries from all levels of sporting activity. Injuries can be incurred from a direct blow e.g. a hockey stick or horse kick; lack of preparation e.g. warm up or stretching; accidents e.g. on the ski slopes or a rugby tackle; use of the wrong or poorly fitting equipment e.g. sports shoes or bicycle. We would advise treatment as quickly as possible to reduce the effects of inflammation, speed up your recovery, and return to sport in the fastest possible time.

Obstetrics

ObstetricsSpecialist physiotherapy advice both ante- and post- natally can be invaluable at this exciting time.

Here at The Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic we can assess and treat common conditions such as back pain, pelvic girdle pain (previously known as SPD), sciatica, neck pain and rib pain which may develop as the pregnancy progresses. Other conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome can be alleviated and managed. Pelvic floor exercises can be taught during pregnancy to improve pelvic support which will be beneficial both before and after giving birth in the prevention and treatment of incontinence. Pilates in pregnancy, and specialist exercises and advice on positions for labour and relaxation can be provided.

Post – natally it is very important to adopt good postures whilst caring for your baby. Musculoskeletal issues such as back and neck pain can be addressed, and pelvic floor re- education is very important at this time.

Exercise programs can be modified to be appropriate and safe aiming for the return of normal function and exercise.

Gynaecology

Urinary Incontinence – This may be stress incontinence or urge incontinence or a combination of both. You will be assessed and examined by our specialist women’s health physiotherapist who will then be able to decide which treatment and management is appropriate for you.

Prolapse – There are a number of different types of prolapse which can be examined and assessed.

Treatment will be provided if appropriate, or an onward referral to a specialist consultant urogynaecologist can be arranged if necessary.
