At Abbey Physiotherapy we see a diverse range of injuries and conditions from minor sprains to major trauma and all stages from acute to chronic ongoing problems.
In the treatment of any injury we consider three factors
- Pain: numerous treatment methods from electrotherapy to manipulation are employed to relieve pain.
- Range of movement: restriction in range of movement is a feature with many injuries and it is this that makes performing everyday tasks so difficult. Restoring normal range with mobilisation techniques and home exercise programmes is a priority in any treatment plan.
- Function: after any injury restoring the affected part to full function in terms of its strength, endurance and range of movement is very important. To achieve this we tailor an ongoing exercise plan for you to follow and which we monitor where necessary.
In considering these factors and discussing them with you, we will produce a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
