Neck pain and whiplash related disorders
Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
The most common form of arthritis which occurs when the cartilage covering the end of the bones becomes thin and worn causing joints to become stiff and painful. Various techniques are used aimed at relieving pain and restoring mobility.
Hip/ knee replacement
Once the joint has been replaced, physiotherapy is recommended for getting the best result from the new joint.
Falls and fractures
Once the plaster is removed a rehabilitation programme taking into account the patient’s needs and lifestyle can be planned. The aim is to restore joint movement, muscle strength and coordination.
Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
Many occupations can lead to muscle pains and problems with nerves, ligaments and joints to the upper limb. A treatment programme including massage, stretching, mobilisation, exercises and advice on posture, workplace and lifestyle can help this condition.
