What Do We Treat
We can offer treatment for most conditions, so please do contact us if you wish to discuss your problem, even if it is not listed. Please be assured that as well as treating patients following an injury or surgery, we also treat patients who have other aches and pains but not as a result of trauma. We can provide treatment to reduce pain, increase range of movement, improve tissue healing and to restore normal function.
Many patients simply don’t realise that fractures can actually be treated from the moment you have done it. It is often assumed that you would see your Physiotherapist once you have come out of plaster to get mobilising. Well, bone is no different in many ways to muscle, tendon or ligaments and we can help to treat those and speed along the healing, so why not with bone?? The treatment of fractures can be done through plaster, is non-invasive and is pain free. Please see our ‘Treatments’ page for more information about Pulsed Magnetic Field Therapy and Laser Therapy.
