The range of conditions that physiotherapy can treat is comprehensive and includes:

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.

   
THORACIC PAIN
The thoracic spine is the part of the back that the ribs attach to. Pain can refer from this area around to the chest. The spine here is often under tension when sitting for long periods. It is an important area for the nervous system and many muscles of the back, pelvis, hips and upper arms attach to the thoracic spine.
