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.

   
SCIATIC PAIN
Sciatic pain is also felt in the thigh – normally the back of the thigh - but in this case it can be harder to pinpoint the cause and may even feel like muscle cramp. In this case the source is often the base of the spine even if there is no back pain. Accurate diagnosis and treatment will ensure a good recovery.
