When people think of Physiotherapy, they generally think of how we can treat neck, shoulder or back pain.
As a physiotherapist I also treat patients with a wide variety of symptoms including pain:
- Jaw pain
- Flexibility and Postural Problems
- Spine and Joint pains
- Chest problems
- Post op care for knee and hip surgery
- Care for people post stroke or heart attacks
- Falls prevention in the elderly
Physiotherapy uses physical means such as mobilisations, exercise re-education to restore the body to full function after, illness, injury disability. Physiotherapy can be used to assess, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate back to normal.
Triple Therapies approach to treatment will always involve assessment, diagnosis, discussion of the findings, devising a treatment plan and usually a home exercise programme followed by reassessment on a subsequent visit.
