Physiotherapy

At Active Physiotherapy, we treat every patient as an individual so you can be sure to receive a treatment programme specific to your individual needs. 

Our physiotherapy team emphasise treating the whole person rather than just “the condition”. We have vast experience in treating patients with a wide variety of problems and we use this experience and expertise to plan the very best treatment for you.

Therefore depending on your specific needs, you can expect one or more of the following treatment options. As a general rule, we will use a combination of hands-on and hands-off physiotherapy treatments options to ensure that we are doing everything we can to get you better as soon as possible.

Home & gym-based exercises

Your physiotherapist will always give you things that you can do at home to help with your injury. After all you will spend more time outside of the clinic than you will in it, therefore, we need to ensure during that time you have things to do to speed up your recovery. Home exercises will be prescribed by your therapist at your initial treatment session and changed/progressed throughout the treatment. Having access to a fully equipped gym at total fitness we may also use these facilities to help with your rehabilitation.

Soft Tissue Massage

This is the application of touch and force to the soft tissues in the body such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. There are many different massage techniques that we use with our patients. Your condition may require massage for lymphatic drainage increasing muscle pliability and range, removal of scar tissue or to release muscular trigger points.

Mobilisations

These are small but precise passive movements performed by your physiotherapist. They are usually applied as a series of gentle stretches around a joint in a smooth, rhythmic motion. They can be applied in various locations around a joint and in various directions. They are aimed at receiving restrictions around that particular joint and help to restore the full range of movement. Mobilisations are administered at varying degrees of pressure through different ranges of movement. More gentle mobilisations are administered for pain relief whilst stronger mobilisations are used to restore movement.

Manipulations

This treatment technique involves the opening up of a joint to the end of its range and giving a short, sharp, but controlled thrust. It is often accompanied by a pop or clicks which is the result of a release of pressure in the joint. These techniques are the same ones performed by chiropractors and osteopaths. However, manipulations are not always an appropriate treatment to use which is why we take such an individualised approach to patient care.
