  • PHYSIOTHERAPY

    WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?

    Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.  This is achieved through exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.  Physiotherapists will help you to manage your pain, recover fitness and strength and overall facilitate recovery.

    After many types of injury, muscles can be weakened, or movement restricted, causing you pain and diminished function. A thorough assessment will aim towards restoring flexibility and strength. For example, a course of physiotherapy after an injury can help rebuild hand strength, improve the range of movement, reduce pain or swelling and restore function. A course of physio is especially good for the following conditions:

    • Neuromusculoskeletal
    • Back pain
    • Whiplash Injuries
    • Sports injuries
    • Arthritis
    • Post-surgery recovery


    WHEN WOULD YOU NEED IT?

    Physiotherapy can help to assist the recovery process. It can help restore normal, day-to-day movement, reduce pain and improve function.  If you have suffered an injury in a road traffic incident, or perhaps a fall, physio can assist in getting you back to your pre-accident state

    HOW IT WORKS

    A qualified HCPC registered physiotherapist will assess your injury and prepare the most effective treatment plan. You will be shown and taught exercises aimed at increasing joint mobility, provided with clear advice and education on lifting, bending or walking without pain.  Any concerns you have can be discussed throughout your treatment so that your physiotherapist provides you with the optimum rehabilitation for your condition. The natural healing process is enhanced throughout your treatment towards getting you back to optimum fitness ASAP,  reducing any post-accident pain and maximising your full functional potential. Physiotherapy is an essential element of the body’s recovery process and helps get you back to a level of fitness where you can enjoy life to the full once more.

  • COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)

    WHAT IS CBT?

    CBT sounds like a complicated process but it is very simple and a highly effective method of counselling. CBT is commonly used to treat the following;

    • Dealing with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
    • Depression caused by a life-changing injury
    • Suffering panic attacks, flashbacks or anxiety (e.g. after a car accident)

    It’s often the case that someone’s physical health can begin to seriously suffer when their mind is deeply affected by a particular incident. So it is important to get professional help in order to aid recovery and this is where CBT comes in.

    WHEN WOULD YOU NEED IT?

    You could well need CBT immediately after suffering or experiencing a serious accident. CBT can help eliminate the long-term effects of a traumatic event. 

    HOW IT WORKS

    CBT is all about helping people cope with a complex array of problems and navigate a path to better health. From the initial assessment, through the process of developing everyday strategies, to eventually reaching a better place both emotionally and physically, CBT can be a powerful tool when dealing with a variety of post-accident stresses and strains in your life.

  • ACUPUNCTURE

    WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?

    Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine based on ancient principles going back nearly two thousand years. It has a very positive model of good health and function, and looks at pain and illness as signs that the body is out of balance. The overall aim of acupuncture treatment, then, is to restore the body’s equilibrium, called qi. Acupuncture therapy consists of fine needles being inserted at particular points around the body. 

    Acupuncture is offered to relieve conditions such as;

    • Neck pain
    • Back pain
    • Knee pain
    • Persistent headaches

    WHEN WOULD YOU NEED IT?

    Many medical practitioners view acupuncture as a complementary therapy as they view the benefit being primarily psychological. However, there’s evidence that the insertion of fine needles prompts chemical reactions within the human body that releases hormones alleviating certain conditions. Acupuncture may be recommended if you’re suffering a niggling and ongoing pain which has been resistant to other treatments. 

    HOW IT WORKS

    Although some acupuncture treatments are offered through the NHS, in many cases patients are referred to private practitioners. An acupuncturist will assess you by asking you a series of questions about your pain, injury and lifestyle. An acupuncturist will offer a detailed explanation of the treatment and how it will benefit your situation. The procedure includes the insertion of single-use needles and sometimes these are heated up to aid the process.

  • CHIROPRACTOR SESSIONS

    WHAT IS CHIROPRACTOR THERAPY?

    The spine is a highly complex structure and any type of injury can result in severe pain. Put into layman’s terms, a chiropractor uses a series of manipulations to help alleviate pain. They will make spinal adjustments or chiropractic adjustment to remedy long-term conditions such as lower back pain. Chiropractor manipulation can help with a variety of problems, and the most common include;

    • Lower back pain
    • Neck pain or whiplash

    WHEN WOULD YOU NEED IT?

    The most common reason for seeing a chiropractor is when suffering from back pain. Usually, this tends to be related to the lower back area, but it can also help someone suffering from neck injuries.

    HOW IT WORKS

    An initial assessment would involve a physical examination of the spine. The chiropractor will also make note of any existing medical conditions, current diet and exercise regime. A treatment plan is then developed aimed at reducing pain and increasing your range of available movement, diminishing any nerve irritability. The aim is to provide a sensation of relaxation and to enhance the range of movement of the affected joint or the spine itself.

  • OSTEOPATHY

    WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

    Osteopathy is a manual therapy that takes a holistic, whole-body approach to improving health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. An osteopath will focus on the joints, muscles and spine. Treatment aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems without the use of drugs or invasive surgery. Using gentle stretching, massage and manipulation techniques, a qualified osteopath can diagnose problems and implement a treatment plan for the following conditions:

    • Back pain, sciatica and whiplash
    • Arthritis
    • Headaches
    • Hand, shoulder and elbow pain
    • Foot, ankle, hip and knee pain
    • Postural problems

    WHEN WOULD YOU NEED IT?

    Chronic conditions can have a considerable effect on everyday life. Osteopathy is helpful when dealing with many conditions sustained by injury i.e. lower back pain. They can also advise on home exercise programs and lifestyle adjustments that can help speed up recovery time and reduce ongoing health risks.

    HOW IT WORKS

    A simple referral to a qualified registered Osteopath is the first step to recovery. During this consultation all injuries would be fully assessed, with regards to range of movement, posture, pain levels, functional ability and daily activities. An in-depth treatment plan will be developed with shared goals.

  • EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITISATION AND REPROCESSING (EMDR)

    WHAT IS EMDR?

    Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is a straightforward procedure aimed at helping to aid relaxation. EMDR aims to minimise the traumatic after-effects of an accident or incident. EMDR encourages a sensation of relaxation whilst you process memories or images. This reduces stress and may alleviate other symptoms affecting your everyday life, such as lack of sleep, headaches, panic attacks, general depression etc. It can be especially helpful with the following conditions;

    • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
    • Road accident recovery
    • Physical attack
    • Phobias or excessive fears

    WHEN WOULD YOU NEED IT?

    You may be suffering sleepless night’s years after an incident or experiencing flashbacks. You may experience other symptoms such as panic attacks, chest pains or extreme anxiety, directly linked to a past incident.  

    HOW IT WORKS

    An EDMR specialist will assess the exact nature of the problem and create a treatment plan tailored to you. Sessions commonly consist of visual and audible testing. EMDR is frequently used alongside with other treatments, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), counselling and physical exercise.
