Physiotherapy and Injury Rehabilitation

Initial Consultation - Physiotherapy [45 mins - 1 hour] - £60 

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession that looks at the ‘whole person’ encouraging health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.

At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.

You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, or preparing for a sporting event.

Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession. Physios use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as the musculoskeletal system.

Athletic Performance/ Functional Movement Screening [60 mins] £65 

(Courses Available)

The FMS (Functional movement screen) is a tool used by fitness professionals, clinicians and top-level athletic trainers to identify asymmetries impairing movement quality. These asymmetries can result in imbalances both in mobility and stability, leading to potential injury inside or outside of a performance environment. This is done by placing an individual in positions where weakness and imbalance become noticeable if appropriate mobility, stability and motor control are not utilised correctly.  

Once these deficiencies have been identified through the FMS, a corrective exercise programme will be developed based on your individual results with the goal of both resolving and preventing musculoskeletal pain and injury.


Electrotherapy Treatments

Ultrasound Therapy [20-30 mins] - £30 

Therapeutic ultrasound is a treatment modality commonly used in physical therapy. It is used to provide deep heating to soft tissues in the body. These tissues include muscles, tendons, joints, and ligaments.  Therapeutic ultrasound is used primarily for two different effects: the deep heating treatment and non-thermal uses.

Shockwave Therapy [15 mins] - £35

Shockwave therapy is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopaedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine,

Its main assets are fast pain relief and mobility restoration. Together with being a non-surgical therapy with no need for painkillers makes it an ideal therapy to speed up recovery and cure various indications causing acute or chronic pain.

IASTM (Graston) [30 mins] - £40 

IASTM stands for Instument Aided Soft Tissue Manipulation, and may also be called ASTYM or Graston. The purpose behind IASTM is multi-factorial. The techniques are designed to produce a healing response from the body to the affected area. This is accomplished through breakdown of the capillary beds inducing nutrition to the tissues of the injured area. A secondary effect occurs at the site of scar tissue formation

Dry Needling [30 mins] - £40

Dry needling is a technique used to help treat pain and movement impairments.   The technique uses a "dry"needle, one without medication or injection, inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. Dry needling is used with the goal of releasing or inactivating trigger points to relieve pain or improve range of motion. Dry needling improves pain control, reduces muscle tension, and normalises dysfunctions of the motor end plates, the sites at which nerve impulses are transmitted to muscles. This can help speed up the patient's return to active rehabilitation.

Functional Movement Screening (FMS) [60 mins] - £65

The FMS (Functional movement screen) is a tool used by fitness professionals, clinicians and top-level athletic trainers to identify asymmetries impairing movement quality. These asymmetries can result in imbalances both in mobility and stability, leading to potential injury inside or outside of a performance environment. This is done by placing an individual in positions where weakness and imbalances become noticeable if appropriate mobility, stability and motor control are not utilised correctly. The following 7 movement patterns are screened;

  1. Deep Squat

  2. Hurdle step

  3. In-line lunge

  4. Active straight leg raise

  5. Shoulder mobility

  6. Trunk stability

  7. Rotary stability

Once these deficiencies have been identified through the FMS, a corrective exercise programme will be developed based on your individual results with the goal of both resolving and preventing musculoskeletal pain and injury.

Other Treatments

Acupuncture [30-45 mins] - £40 

Western medical acupuncture is the use of acupuncture following a medical diagnosis. It involves stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles of the body. This results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. It's likely that these naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.

K-Tape/ Rock Tape [Single session] - £15

When the signals going to the brain are changed, it does not produce the sensation of pain. When kinesiology tape is applied correctly, many patients feel that their injury is instantly fixed. It essentially turns down the volume of pain and alters how you body interprets pain Decompresses swelling and inflammation, by creating a lifting effect of the skin between the layers, helping to reduce and remove inflammation. Normalizes muscle tone.

When someone is injured, fatigued, sick, or inflamed, the symphony of muscle action that normally takes place with great accuracy often falls out of tune. This can happen all over the body. For instance, research has shown that people who sprain their ankle tend to have altered activity of their hip muscle as a result. RockTape helps bring dormant muscle back to life and help calm down the overactive muscles. It helps your body coordinate movement as if it weren’t hurt, hence allowing it to heal properly.
