What is Musculo-skeletal  Physiotherapy ?

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy involves treatments  aimed for Joint pain, muscular strain and ligament sprains. Therapy is aimed at reducing the pain, condition the muscles and improve the movement & posture for efficient functioning. Treatment involves:

  • Joint mobilisation

  • Trigger point release

  • Soft tissue release

  • Deep tissue Massage

  • Strengthening exercises

  • Stretching exercise to improve muscle length.

 

Pain and difficulty in movement due to musculo skeletal problems comes under three main areas. Issues could be originating from a joint with adhesions or muscular strain with trigger points or ligament injuries resulting in scar tissue formation. Pain and movement problems could be a combination of these problems. It is important to get the source of pain and treat it permenantly, rather than manage the pain symptomatically.

 

Individually tailored exercise program means the exercises are specific to your needs and to improve your pain and movement. Please contact 07910253893 if you would like to discuss or alternatively click below to book an appointment.

What is Neuro Physiotherapy?

 

Neurological Physiotherapy is different from generic physiotherapy approach. Nice guidelines recommend that Stroke victims and people with Multiple Sclerosis should be seen by a Physiotherapist with special interest in neurology.

Neurological Physiotherapy focuses on neuroplasticity, neural recovery and enhancing the muscle function by using different techniques. This may involve using Bobath approach, PNF technique, Neuromuscular energising therapy, gait reeducation etc. In simple terms, it involves:

  • Hands on muscle facilitation techniques

  • Special exercises to improve weight bearing on the affected extremity.

  • Exercises to maintain and improve flexibility by increasing the range of movement

  • Balance and coordination exercises.

  • Exercises to improve arm and hand recovery post stroke

  • Management of spasticity post stroke or spinal cord injury or other conditions.

How Neuro Physiotherapy can help Stroke survivors ?

Stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is affected. It could either be due to a blocked blood vessel or a rupture of a blood vessel in the brain. Recovery from stroke depends on the type and severity of the stroke.

Every stroke client recovers in different way and they should have an individually tailored therapy approach. Some severe strokes may not show progress in the early stage but may show some recovery during the later years. It is imperative that Stroke victims have regular specialised physiotherapy input in order to enhance and prolong their neurological recovery.

What is the difference between Massage and Physiotherapy

 

Massage reduces pain by improving blood circulation, reducing muscle spasm and relaxation by blocking the pain gate. Some patients respond better with a Deep tissue massage, followed by an exercise program. Some patients may need more than just a massage and a neuro-musculoskeletal physiotherapist can do mobilisation or manipulation, as well as massage to enhance the recovery process. Please contact 07910253893 if you would like to discuss or alternatively click below to book an appointment.

Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES)

 

What is FES ?

Functional electrical stimulation is a NICE guideline recommended treatment for managing 'drop foot' post stroke or any other upper motor neurone lesions. Drop foot is defined as inability to lift the ankle or toes upwards. This can result in decreased confidence while walking, trip over and frequent falls, catching the toes while walking, fatigue due to increased effort to lift the ankle and toes up while walking. Stroke victims with foot drop or difficulty in walking can be improved by Functional electrical stimulation device. It helps clear the foot while walking, thereby reducing the risk of fall, fear of fall and improved confidence in walking indoors and outdoors.
