Physiotherapy aims to promote healing and restore full function as soon as possible.
It encompasses assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of any disorder of the neuromusculoskeletal system, including post-operative orthopaedic conditions, postural and biomechanical problems, and chronic pain.
Whether the injury is new or old, and whether it was picked up on the golf course, while walking on the promenade or training for the Argus or Ironman, physiotherapy optimises healing of injuries, facilitates speedy return to sport and prevents recurrence of problems.
Research shows that appropriate exercise is the key to pain relief, prevention and long-term management of spinal problems and other injuries. Appropriate for any age and fitness level, Pilates is a self-empowering form of exercise that educates you about your body, posture and normal movement patterns while improving your strength and flexibility.
To ensure your child has a healthy, active life, it is vital to instill in them a love of exercise. Physiball (4-7 years) aims to improve your child’s motor skills and postural control, while Physifit (8-13 years) focuses on preventing injury once they have started participating in sport. Both programmes incorporate Pilates, yoga, co-ordination and balance exercises.
Pre- & post-event sports massage
For loosening and relaxing muscles prior to an event or to aid quick recovery, sports massage is integral to many athletes’ agendas.
Pre-season screening assessments
Prevention is better than cure! Pre-season screening assessments aim to detect weakness before an injury occurs and provide appropriate intervention to restore full strength and flexibility.
Individual programme design
Whether you are looking for a gym or home routine to keep flexible and fit, or a sport-specific strength and conditioning programme aimed at improving your performance, an individually designed programme will target your needs.
Home visits can be done on request if the client is house-bound or immobilised after an operation or injury.
Ergonomic work station assessment
Work station assessment can be discussed in depth at the practice and guidelines given for improvements. Advice is also offered on ergonomic aids and ‘pause exercises’ to do at work. If necessary and appropriate, further assessment can be done at the workplace.
As we prioritise the needs of the client, we often refer to healthcare professionals such as biokineticists, psychologists and dieticians. Physiotherapists can refer for X-rays and will refer to specialists such as orthopaedic surgeons or neurologists whenever necessary.
