Physio

We’re proud of the treatment we offer at PhysioFit Health & Sports Injury Clinic. Whatever your symptoms are, we aim to get to the bottom of the problem. We place great emphasis on explaining the reason to you and the different solutions available to you.

We can offer a wide range of treatment for conditions including, but not exclusive to:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Post-surgery rehab
  • Sports injuries
  • Running injuries

Treatment & Advice

Our skilled physiotherapists will thoroughly assess you and come up with a treatment plan. Injuries can be linked to weak muscles or poor movement control, which is where we fit in. We can help identify these areas and target them so you can be fit and pain-free. What sets us apart is our high standard of care and treatment provided.

Exercise Programme

Along with explaining what’s going on with you, we’ll give you an individualised exercise plan, which we’ll tailor to your individual lifestyle. For some, that’s adding exercises to a routine they already do at the gym. For others, the exercises fit in better if they can do them at home. Just let you’re treating physiotherapist know what best suits your lifestyle.

Performance Improvement

We use the latest research and our wealth of experience to provide the best possible service. We’re keen on giving the best rehabilitation plans after injury/pain. Our aim is to improve strength and control, to ensure the problem doesn’t occur again.

With information gained, we can tailor treatment programmes to each individual. Specific exercises can improve flexibility and strength which can help improve athletic performance.

As assessment is individualised, we work with all ages, wanting to achieve a whole range of goals.

Sports Injury

Frustratingly common and tend to fall into two main categories of acute injury or ‘overuse’. Ideally, you want to prevent injuries from happening, which can be easier said than done! Typically acute injuries resolve with time, but overuse injuries don’t get better by themselves. Get yourself assessed so you can figure out what you can do to improve the situation and get back the sport you love.

Sometimes all it takes is one appointment to assess the injury and identify the best way to rehab the joints and muscles. This is different for everyone. A common scenario our physios see is that people had an injury and ‘thought it would get better’, and then make an appointment months down the line as it didn’t improve.

Here at PhysioFit Health, we know how important it is for you to get out there and play or do your sport of choice.

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a popular addition to physiotherapy treatment and can be effective at relieving muscle pain, spasm and tightness.

Normally, dry needling is used in conjunction with other physiotherapy treatments and discussed after the assessment. There’s an option for you to book in for just a dry needling appointment to try it out. However, use of needles will be after an assessment by the treating physio and if more appropriate the appointment converted to a standard one.

If you want to know more then please have a chat with your treating physiotherapist to discuss the options.

Biomechanical Running Assessment

Want to get more out of your running and not sure how? Or are you a beginner runner? We provide a biomechanical running assessment which caters to those who have had an injury and would like help in recovery, to those just starting to train for an event and not sure the best way to go about it.

During the appointment, we’ll look at your running and training history, and assess different movements to help identify if there are biomechanical issues that may be impacting your running. Most importantly, we’ll have a look at your running technique on a treadmill. From this, we can provide specific exercises and drills, designed to improve your running based on the findings of your assessment.

Pilates

We believe that physiotherapy and Pilates go hand in hand. When you’re recovering from after an injury, it’s important to regain strength, flexibility and movement control, which is where Pilates classes can help.

We offer a one-to-one assessment, where can identify key areas for you to work on, and give a suggestion of different exercises that would help you. We also offer mat-based classes in the clinic and the park (when the weather is good!), which you can come along and join us. These will be run by experienced physiotherapists who are also Pilates instructors.
