What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a healthcare profession which involves the treatment or management of pain, disability and impaired movement by means of massage, myofascial techniques, joints mobilisations and exercises.  It is a primary care health profession and is established on sound health science principles. We work to restore full normal movement and to reduce or eliminate pain resulting from injury, infirmity and from medical conditions.

What Does It Involve?

Assessment of the Problem:  We will carry out a thorough assessment with you and establish the cause of your problem. We will then develop a programme which is specific to you and your underlying condition.  

Treatment of the Problem : We will work with you, using a variety of advanced hands-on manual techniques to treat your problems which often occur in the joints and soft tissues, such as: muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and fascia. We will ensure continual assessment and monitoring of your presenting problem during your treatment.

Identifying the Underlying Causes:  In addition to physical assessment, we will adopt a ‘big-picture approach’ taking into account any work or activity related issues which are contributing to the problem. We will also take into account social and psychological issues contributing to you physical problems.  

Preventing Reoccurrence:  We will work with you to establish a suitable exercise or rehabilitation program to help restore you to full health and reduce risk of re-injury. We will also work with you to change patterns of activity which have led to the problem in the first place.
