Physiotherapy For Sports & Spinal Injuries
What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy at Sports and Spinal Physio is a combination of hands on techniques to loosen the stiff or tight bits and specific exercise drills to retrain the movements and muscles that are required to make you function and work better. In most cases you will require advice and education to help you understand your condition and equip you in your journey to better health. These are the vital ingredients required to get you out of pain, and back to what you love to do.
At Sports and Spinal Physio we have our very own unique approach, we believe that pain is just the tip of the ice berg and that unless we get the bit under the water better you won’t make a full and lasting recovery. As such we use an advanced screening tool called the TPM Active™ to assess and treat you.
What to expect?
At Sports and Spinal Physio you will undergo a thorough assessment of your problem. During this time we will take a detailed history and conduct a comprehensive examination to establish the cause and diagnosis of your problem. We will then agree an appropriate treatment programme and provide you with a detailed ‘action plan’ and estimated recovery time so you know exactly what to expect.
Your physiotherapy treatment will include a combination of “hands on” techniques such as mobilisation, manipulation, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy in conjunction with a structured tailored exercise programme to improve posture, control of movement, core stability, muscle balance and strength. It is our aim to get you better faster and to prevent your problem coming back. Once your pain has settled and if you are keen to go beyond the resolution of pain we will discuss how we can prevent your pain from coming back and how we can help you to function and perform even better than before you injury (see our Injury prevention page).
At Sports and Spinal Physio we have strong links with local and London based hospital specialists. Should you fail to respond to your treatment we can confidently refer you on for further investigation and treatment to medical specialists that we trust.
