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.

I’ve known Joy & Rob for several years and they are great at assessment & treatment ... I remain very impressed & will continue to recommend their services to patients, friends and family.

A UK-wide CSP survey showed that 32% of people who have desk based work experience physical pain during working hours at least once a week. A further 65% reported back pain as the most common problem. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as back pain are one of the biggest causes of sickness absence on any given day and are estimated to cost society and employers around £7.4 billion a year!

With more and more of us having the option to work from home it's imperative to have the correct seating arrangement to reduce the risk of back pain and other associated aches and pains.
