Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a discipline involving the hands-on treatment of injuries and the prescription of rehabilitation exercises to help people overcome their pain and dysfunction.

Most physiotherapists start their training and career in the NHS working across a wide area of disciplines.

These include working we people who have had major traumas, broken bones or surgery; working with amputees or people with spinal cord injuries; and people with chronic degenerative injuries, back pain or sports injuries.

Physiotherapists look at your movement, posture and function, identifying faults in these areas and working on ways to improve them with hands on treatment and exercise.

Contrary to popular belief physiotherapists do not just treat muscles, or sports injuries – we treat the entire body improving spinal and joint movement, nerve mobility, the flexibility of muscle and fascia and by improving strength and muscle control through exercise. Physiotherapists may also use adjuncts to treatment such as tape, acupuncture or electrotherapy such as ultrasound, TENs or muscle stimulation.

What is Physiotherapy?

What is Physiotherapy?

Your initial appointment with the physiotherapist will be 30 minutes. In that time you will be asked to explain your injury, how it happened, how long you have had it and how it makes you feel.

You will be asked to set some goals about what you want to achieve from your time spent with the therapist. Your physiotherapist will also run through your past medical history finding out about any medical diagnoses or medicine that you take.

Next your physiotherapist will carry out a physical examination looking at the affected area plus carry out an assessment of your posture and how you move.

Once they have carried out this assessment they will put together a treatment plan for you.

In the remaining time of your initial assessment and on subsequent treatment sessions they will carry out this treatment plan and also give you home exercises to do to either resolve your problem or to give you a management strategy to keep your symptoms under control.

Your therapist will endeavor to give you an accurate diagnosis and give you realistic expectations of how many treatments you will require to get better.

Most problems can be resolved within 4 to 6 treatment sessions. On occasion your therapist may refer you to a consultant for a second opinion to verify the initial diagnosis and treatment plan or explore other treatment options such as injections or surgery.

Your therapist may also refer you to other healthcare professionals that they feel would be appropriate to help you.

This may include a Pilates instructor, massage therapist, acupuncturists, nutritionist, women’s health specialist, osteopath or yoga instructor.

 

I could not recommend Wandsworth physiotherapy more highly. Both Steve and Sid were invaluable to my marathon preparation and because they offer a wide range of services including physiotherapy, acupuncture and sports massage they are able to treat people in numerous ways to get the best results.

These guys are fantastic! Really quick to reply and they found me an appointment on the same day. I've since had regular treatments with Alessio who is excellent, and my torn IT band, shoulder and other ailments are much improved. Brilliant for both sports injuries and wellness.

Gerry Sweetland

Booked an appointment for the same day on a Saturday. Adele has been very welcoming and helpful, providing useful advice as well as efficient treatment. Great local clinic, will definitely come back and recommend.

Jean Reverdy

Great Physio. Adele is very knowledgeable and helpful. She knew exactly where the pain was and was able to fix it. Everyone is very friendly. It's definitely worth a visit if you have any sort of pain!

Rebecca Nakhle

I've been several times for several different problems and Steve has always been excellent. He listens really carefully and asks good questions to find out exactly what's wrong, and is very clear with follow-up exercises to continue the therapy at home. Highly recommend him!
