Physiotherapy is the discipline that addresses injury, illness or disability. Here at The Physios we have many years of specialist training and have treated over 10,000 patients so you can be confident that we know what we are doing. We are fully registered with all health insurers including Bupa and are an approved provider by Westfield.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (SWT) is an effective treatment for chronic tendon and fascia conditions which has scientifically proven, excellent results.
Sports Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft tissue to manage and rehabilitate muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Here at The Physios we often use Sports Massage Therapy to complement Physiotherapy treatment with our practitioners working together closely. You do not need to be an athlete to benefit from sports massage as we can skilfully adapt our techniques to suit everyone.
Podiatry is the science that examines the forces that act on the body and the affect those forces produce. It is well recognised that a person’s abnormal stance and gait (walking pattern) can be the cause of recurrent postural problems which commonly include back, hip, knee, ankle and foot pain.
Early recognition of abnormal foot and lower limb biomechanics can often avoid injury and should always be considered in the prevention of injury.
Run Lab is a tailored assessment and treatment package specifically designed for runners of all levels. Run Lab aims to prevent running injuries, treat persistent problems, and/or improve your running performance.
Run Lab+ is a specially designed assessment testing lactate threshold, the new ‘go-to’ assessment tool for endurance athletes. Lactate threshold is the point at which lactate, the chemical formed when burning carbohydrates for energy, accumulates too quickly in the blood for your body to get rid of it, ultimately stopping you running quicker for longer.
Functional Movement Screening (FMS) is an internationally recognised scoring system testing your bodies’ fundamental movements. These are the movement patterns you use in everyday life and sports activity. Essentially a physical MOT for your body.
Having a baby is life changing in many ways, not least the changes in your body. The physical demands placed on your body are significant, particularly during and after labour. If you add to the mix a complicated delivery or caesarean section, often women can require some help with their natural recovery and return to exercise and the activities they enjoy.
Statistically pelvic health symptoms are a common issue but are rarely discussed due to embarrassment or a lack of awareness of how effective treatment can be. Many men and women experience issues with their pelvic floor during their life time such as incontinence, bowel problems and pelvic pain. Physiotherapy is proven to be effective in improving and resolving pelvic floor conditions.
Pain in pregnancy, especially back and pelvic pain are common but not normal. Hands on treatment and specific exercise is effective at helping with these problems to ensure good activity throughout pregnancy.
Ultrasound scanning (USS) is a perfect companion to the physiotherapist. It can be done instantly with the results immediate and can provide a more definitive diagnosis and management plan. It is a dynamic scan which means that we can analyse the effect of movement on the tissues as well as viewing them when stationary.
Another benefit of having an ultrasound scanner in the practice is that provides the opportunity to use it to guide injections to the exact target. With the development of the technology, it is now accepted that guided injections represent the ‘gold standard’ for many injections. Adding this capability to Paul’s extensive experience in teaching and practising injection therapy enables him to provide unrivalled excellence.
Bike Lab is an incredibly effective way of making your cycling both on and off-road more comfortable and efficient; allowing you to reduce the risk of injuries, achieve competition goals or simply save energy on your daily commute.
Based on traditional Chinese medicine, some of The Physios have undertaken additional training in the use of acupuncture for pain relief.
Improve your performance and prevent injury with a full intrinsic Biomechanics assessment. Intrinsic biomechanical assessments reveal your full potential correcting dysfunctions within your body that gradually occur over time following injury or from poor long term postural habits that you may not be aware of.
Pilates is a lifestyle choice that will help you to move better, remove bad habits and create a positive change. Focusing on alignment, breathing and correct muscle activation, you will quickly recognise that the principles of Pilates intertwine with all aspects of daily life – you name it and Pilates will be assisting you in some way or another to reduce pain, prevent injury and improve your movement!
High intensity circuits are blended with less-intensive, Pilates based exercises to ensure an effective and balanced workout. These popular sessions serve as an ideal way to enjoy the cardiovascular effort of a high intensity workout whilst maintaining the flexibility, control and core strength offered by Clinical Pilates.
Equipilates™ is an ideal session for horse riders of all disciplines. This bespoke session creates correct alignment and efficient movement as you ride resulting in a better outline and movement from your horse. It will balance out any postural preferences developed over time causing ‘one-sidedness’ and will improve your concentration and focus.
