Can Physiotherapy Help Me?

How can Physio help? Physiotherapists are Graduate-level specialists who not only treat injuries, but also provide advice and exercise programmes to enable you to achieve your highest level of physical functioning (at any stage of life). A physiotherapist can evaluate your condition and identify the source of your discomfort or dysfunction. Once evaluated, the therapist can develop a treatment program that will usually involve some form of manual therapy and exercise, as well as modalities if necessary. You will also receive instruction in a home exercise program as well as education on body mechanics and posture in order to prevent the reoccurrence of your original injury. What can Physio do? Using a variety of techniques a Physiotherapist can help: * Alleviate pain * Restore and increase the range of motion in joints * Prevent and treat sports injuries * Increase co-ordination * Educate patients in the use of walking sticks, crutches and wheelchairs Physiotherapy Treatments Personal treatment and exercise programmes are based on your specific needs. Individual techniques include: * Manipulation / Mobilisation * Personal Exercise Programmes * Electrotherapy * Acupuncture * Massage * Advice * Pilates Conditions Physio's treat As qualified Chartered Physiotherapists we use a wide range of skills to treat a wide variety of problems and are involved in the treatment of numerous complaints, such as: Joints * Arthritis, injury, pain, swelling, stiffness * Back and neck pain - protruding/ prolapsed discs, eg 'Trapped Nerves' or 'Slipped Discs' * Frozen Shoulder * Knee Injuries including ligament & cartilage damage * Sciatica - pain down the back of the leg Injuries * Sports Injuries - to muscle, ligament, cartilage, capsule and tendon problems * Muscle and ligament tears/strains * Whiplash * Fractures and trauma * Tennis elbow, golfers elbow Posture * Postural problems including chronic neck/shoulder discomfort * Ergonomic advice Pre & Post Operative rehabilitation * Joint replacements * Pre & post arthroscopy * A.C.L. reconstructions * Scar tissue treatment Neurological * Strokes * Head injuries * Multiple Sclerosis * Parkinson's Disease * Peripheral neuropathies * Balance problems * Headaches Occupational * Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) * Personal injuries - eg. accidents occurred from falls, driving or work Physiotherapists can treat almost all conditions which have one of these symptoms; pain, weakness, stiffness, loss of movement.

Our team of physiotherapists are experienced in the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Manchester Physio will provide you with a full and comprehensive assessment, identifying the exact cause of your problem and ensuring your treatment is tailored to your specific needs.

We use 'hands on' treatment techniques including mobilisation, soft tissue manipulation and massage. More importantly, you will be given a tailor-made program of exercises, designed specifically for you. This will ensure that we not only treat your problem, but prevent it from coming back.

All our Physiotherapists are trained to recognise any conditions that may require a referral to another medical practitioner. We regularly liaise with clients' GPs or Consultants and update them with progress made.
