The main role of our physiotherapists is to assess, diagnose and treat each patient’s condition accordingly. Our physiotherapy treatments usually consist of manual therapy – a combination of mobilisations of joint, soft tissue techniques, taping, dry needling and acupuncture.
Our physiotherapy sessions are followed by an exercise programme to rehabilitate injury and any chronic pain, helping you get back to your normal lifestyle. Physiotherapists are also able to assess posture as well as pelvic and spinal alignments. At PhysioCentral we can help you whether your injury or pain is related to sport, work or your lifestyle.
Acupuncture is very effective and complimentary to physiotherapy. It is a very safe and effective method of dealing with pain. Our physiotherapists are skilled in the use of acupuncture and all needles are single-use only, pre-sterilized and disposable. Different needling approaches can be used:
- Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) Acupuncture – based on a conventional, holistic approach to acupuncture. Needles are inserted and left in position for 20 – 30 minutes.
- Dry Needling – also known as Trigger Point Needling. This facilitates the relaxation of specific muscles and needles are inserted into the tight muscle. This technique is quicker than TCM.
All sessions are held at our clinic and led by fully qualified, registered physiotherapists and Pilates instructors. These can be delivered either one-to-one or in a small group and the aim is to provide a safe space for treating back pain and core strengthening.
The small group sessions ensure that the quality of movement is maintained and we make sure that the exercises given are specific to your needs and your physiotherapy treatment. Clinical Pilates is open to post-surgery patients or those currently suffering from back pain. Each patient would need to be fully assessed by a physiotherapist before joining a class.
Due to the current COVID19 outbreak, all our clinical Pilates classes have now been stopped until further notice. Please follow our FREE Pilates classes online.
Longer working hours may lead to ailments that would require physiotherapy treatment. We offer advice and assessments at the workplace for individuals or companies with employees suffering from particular work-related conditions such as RSI (repetitive strain injuries), back pain, joint pain and other symptoms.
This service can be tailored to your requirements and ranges from:
- An informal office walk through and general advice
- Standardised assessments for an entire team or company, resulting in a formal report.
