Physiotherapists are trained to assess and treat dysfunction in joints, muscle and nerves and the impact these have on movement and ability to function. Our aim is to restore pain free movement and strength while also giving you the knowledge and tools to maintain it so you can return to living your best life.
Physiotherapy can assist you to
Manage current injuries and accelerate healing time
Decrease pain in muscles, joints and nerves
Achieve and maintain correct alignment
Improve core and peripheral strength
Prevent future injuries
Relax the body and alleviate tension in the spine
A typical consultation involves discussion of the nature of the problem, how it occurred, the impact on your lifestyle and a general medical history.
The physical assessment usually involves observing movement, feeling and testing the tissues affected and determining an appropriate treatment plan.
Treatment involves using a variety of ‘hands on’ techniques such as
Joint, nerve and muscle mobilisation
Joint manipulation (if indicated)
Dry needling (similiar to acupuncture)
Trigger point therapy
Therapeutic exercise, including home exercises to maintain progress achieved in the treatment session
Electrophysical modalities such as ultrasound
A key component at Inspire is to provide education and lifestyle advice. We use a unique approach which puts you in control of your health and recovery, where both parties – the physiotherapist AND the client work together to achieve the agreed outcomes.
Our aim is to ensure that clients feel empowered through education and self management techniques, so that what is achieved in the session(s) is supported and built on between sessions and at the completion of onsite treatment. Changing the small everyday things makes a big difference to the speed of recovery and also prevents future injuries.
Practical knowledge combined with effective hands on treatment means faster and more sustainable results as clients are supported to form habits to promote recovery, develop resilience and enhance performance. It’s about setting you up for success to achieve sustainable health and wellbeing.
