Physiotherapy can treat spinal injuries, joint injuries and soft tissue injuries (which are injuries of muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves).
The range of conditions that physiotherapy can treat is comprehensive and includes:
Treatment includes:
Mobilisations
Manipulation
Electrotherapy
Acupuncture
Injection Therapy
Deep Friction Massage
Exercise Programs
Posture Re-education
Also pre-surgery preparation and post surgery rehabilitation for operations such as hip and knee replacements, arthroscopies, spinal surgery, shoulder decompressions, replacements and rotator cuff repairs.

At your first appointment, time will be taken gathering a full history of your condition. You will be required to remove only those items of clothing needed to enable examination of the relevant area. Chris will need to observe your movements and also palpate and test the areas in question in order to understand the nature of the problem. Your dignity will be respected at all times and a thorough explanation of the findings and treatment plan will be given.

   
DISC PROBLEMS
Occasionally back pain may involve problems with the discs or cartilage spacers that splint apart the bony vertebrae in the back. As with most cartilage in the body it will undergo the ageing process and wear but only rarely will the disc cause severe pain. In these cases it may be focussed centrally in the back or cause referred pain into leg.
