Conditions We Treat

Chronic Painful Conditions:

Chronic pain is described as an on-going pain lasting for more than 6 months. The management of chronic pain is very difficult due to poor understanding of its cause and lack of adequate facilities to help patient live a good quality of life. Chronic pain is associated with muscle weakness, joint stiffness, lack of stamina, and lack of sleep, frustration and poor coping methods. In most cases, this condition does not respond to treatment. The management of this condition requires various health care professionals. Physiotherapy plays major roles in the management of this condition. However, the traditional physiotherapy methods of treating chronic pain have been less successful. In our clinic, we have experienced specialist therapists and psychologist to help our patient achieve a good quality of life. Specifically, we work together with our patients to set achievable and realistic goals. One of the goals is aimed at restoring normal body function and activities and prevention of secondary avoidable complications associated with this condition.

Some of our strategies involve exercises to strengthen muscles, restoring joint flexibility, coping strategies, relaxation, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) acupuncture and massage. Our patients play a major role in achieving their goals. We expect our patient to be actively involved in the rehabilitation programme. We also engage and educate the family and friend in the process.

Sports injuries such as joint, ligament and muscle injuries

Sprain injuries affect the ligaments of the joint. They are associated with over-stretching of the ligaments causing pain, swelling and instability of the joint affected. Strains are muscle and tendon injuries. It usually occurs as a result of overuse of a particular muscle of a joint. In our clinic we are experienced in the assessment of our patients in order to identify the cause and offer an appropriate treatment approach to relieve the symptoms.

Ligament problems are common in the joints of the body especially in the lower limbs. In our clinic we offer thorough assessment and appropriate treatment technique to help our patients.

Our treatment plan usually involves the use of electrotherapy modalities along with exercise to improve muscle strength and thus reduce recurrence of injury in future.

Neuro Physiotherapy (Neurological Rehabilitation)

Our aim is to provide high standards of care to improve our patients quality of life, by maximising the potential of the affected parts of the body. Every patient with a neurological disorder is affected differently, and therefore treatment provided will be tailored to the patients needs to help them improve their health. Neurological patients may have difficulties in walking, balance, co-ordination and every day activities. Neurological physiotherapists are specialised in treating a wide range of conditions.

Common conditions treated include Stroke, Parkinsons disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, post- operative brain surgery, peripheral nerve injuries, and many more. The main approaches to treating neurological disorders are known as Bobath (normal movement), The Carr and Shepherd (motor relearning), Signe Brunnstrom (Synergic pattern of movement) and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation.

In our practice, every patient is seen privately on a one-to-one basis by our specialist neuro- physiotherapist. The sessions involve assessment of the patient and then treatment plans would be produced. The aim of treatment plans are to try and make the patient as independent as possible in everyday tasks. We also give advice to the patient and their family on how to perform physiotherapy exercises correctly. This would enable the patient to safely conduct exercises at home.

Whiplash injuries

This injury is associated with sudden forceful backwards and forwards movement of head on neck during a road traffic accident. The movement could cause injury to the muscles, ligaments, tendon, the discs and occasional fracture in the neck region. This injury results in stiffness, spasm, instability, head and neck pain. Physiotherapists play major roles during the acute and the long term management of this injury. In our clinic, we carry out thorough assessment of our patients in order to help resolve the problems. We are skilled in recognising how this injury affects an individual as well as how to manage it. We offer a treatment approach that helps to restore movement, relieve pain and spasm and prevent complications.

We also provide reports to the third party if our patient requests such reports. We expect our patients to trust our judgement and help us to help them. Specifically, we expect our patient to carry out the exercise programme that we design for them in order to achieve quick recovery.

Mechanical Low Back and Neck Pain

Acute low back pain can be caused by many factors such as injuries. Such injuries sometimes affect the discs (causing sciatica), muscles, ligament and joints of the back. Sciatica is the pain that is spread to the buttocks or leg depending on the level of discs that are affected. Inadequate managing of the acute low back pain could lead to ongoing pain/chronic pain. We offer thorough assessment and apply prompt treatment to manage the pain as well as prevent it from becoming chronic. Our method of assessment involves finding out the source of pain particularly to determine if the pain is mechanical (due to muscles, disc, or joint of the back). Treatment is therefore directed towards the appropriate structures. We also provide information to our patient on ways to minimise re-injuring of the back.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is a wear and tear changes taking place in the back. It usually attributed to aging process. Degenerative disc disease is not limited to elderly population alone.

It can start from younger population as well just as developing a grey heir can be found in the younger age group. It usually develops dues to the disc in the spine losing its water content and become less flexible. This process leads to joint stiffness, pain and weakness of back muscles and abdominal muscles.

In our clinic, we work with the patient to restore the flexibility of the joints of the back, improve the strength of your back muscles as well as core abdominal muscle strength. One of the common findings in this condition is the lack of endurance of back muscles leading to early fatigue with subsequent painful back. We will work together to design coping strategies to manage this type of pain.

Repetitive strain injuries

As the name implies, these injures are due to accumulation of stress over time that placed on soft tissues due to repeated use. The injury can affect any joint in the body, particularly, neck, hands, arm, shoulder, knee, and legs. The affected joint develops an imbalance in the muscle strength and flexibility leading to further strain.

In our facility, we provide detailed assessment of the affected part. We offer advice and administer appropriate hands-on treatment techniques to reduce the pain.
