We aim to restore your previous functional level and help you fully understand why you are having ongoing problems (if any). This helps you manage your condition more effectively and accelerates the long term resolution of your problem.
Back pain – Back (and neck) pain is probably the commonest condition seen by a physiotherapist. The vast majority of back pain is due to either a muscular-ligamentous strain or joint dysfunction. The severity of the pain ranges from mild discomfort to severe, disabling pain and may radiate down the lower limb, indicating the possibility of a slipped disc. Treatment typically seeks to relieve pain, restore function and prevent recurrence in the long term. Most low back pain get better within 6 weeks and surgery is not necessary and should always be a last option.
Frozen shoulder – Frequently referred to as 50-year old shoulder, is characterised by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. Symptoms typically begin gradually, worsen over time and then resolve, usually within one to three years. Your risk of developing frozen shoulder increases if you are recovering from a medical condition that prevents you from moving your arm – such as a fracture, stroke or a mastectomy. Treatment for frozen shoulder involves relief of pain, joint mobilisations, stretches and range-of-motion exercises.
Osteoarthritis (OA) – The most common form of arthritis, commonly manifesting in the knee joint. It is a degenerative ‘wear and tear’ type of arthritis that occurs with age, but recently attributed to genetic factors. Pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of function are the primary symptoms of OA. Although there is no cure for arthritis, there are many treatment options to help manage pain and keep people staying active.
