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

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.

   
TENNIS ELBOW
This condition is very similar to Golfers elbow but affects the outside of the elbow joint. It is also known as lateral epicondylitis as it refers to inflammation of some of the forearm tendons where they insert on to the bony epicondyle of the elbow joint. A range of treatments such as massage, manipulation and acupuncture can help restore the normal function of the tendons. Occasionally tennis elbow type pain can be caused by neck problems and this area should also be routinely examined.
