Physiotherapy at Body 2 Fit
Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy is the most commonly used form of Physiotherapy and refers to the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of conditions, injuries and, problems affecting the nerves, muscles, bones and soft tissues of the body.
The following conditions can be treated by a MSK Physiotherapy specialist:
- Sports Injuries – including sprains, strains, bruising joint problems and other sport restricting complaints
- Spinal Problems – including low back pain, whiplash, cervical spondylosis, sciatica, lumbago, prolapsed discs, degenerative diseases, stiff / painful neck and referred arm or leg pain
- Joint Problems – arthritis, joint injury, joint instability (hyper-mobility), pain / swelling / stiffness in joints
- Soft Tissue Problems – including damage to muscles, tendons, ligament and cartilage Fractures – treatment to accelerate and influence the healing rate enabling full function once the bones have healed
- After Surgery – rehabilitation after surgery aimed at restoring movement, strength and full independent function as soon as possible
- Postural Problems – specific treatment and exercises aimed at improving posture and reducing the onset of discomfort.
Having comprehensively assessed the problem and formulated a diagnosis, your MSK Physiotherapist will use one or more of the following treatment options:
- Joint Mobilisation and Manipulation – used to encourage and aid restoration of normal joint movement
- Soft Tissue Techniques – often used to help breakdown internal tissue scarring enabling better tissue repair and elasticity (flexibility)
- Electrotherapy – electrical therapy equipment can be incorporated into the management of injuries to help accelerate recovery (Ultrasound, TENS, etc.)
- Acupuncture – may be used to influence the healing rate or reduce pain
- Hydrotherapy – therapy, exercises and stretching in the water (using purpose built facilities) allowing recovery to start much earlier following injury or surgery
- Exercise Programmes – specific programmes using the latest training equipment to help restore movement, fitness or sporting ability
- Pilates Rehab - Pilates based exercises to help restore flowing movement, increase flexibility and CORE strength.
