Introducing the clients we work with
Our clients come from a range of backgrounds and come to us with a wide spectrum of problems and diseases they need physio to help with. Here are just some of the reasons clients are contacting us:
We are specialists at dealing with back and neck related pain and medical issues. Over 2.5 million people suffer from back pain caused by everything from a slipped disc to posture problems. It can be debilitating and affect a person’s quality of life and ability to work.
Here are just some of the back and neck problems we’re skilled and experienced at helping our clients with.
Generally, we mean the deterioration of the spinal column, sometimes, it can be something specific like spinal osteoarthrosis. Physical therapy plays a major role in managing the pain and slowing deterioration. The treatment consists of manipulating the joints in the vertebrae. It helps to reduce stiffness and can be pretty life-changing in terms of reducing and managing pain.
In 9 out of 10 cases, sciatica is due to a herniation of a lumbar spinal disc which puts pressure on the lumbar or sacral nerve causing a radiating pain, pins, and needles or weakness of the leg. Spinal manipulation is an effective form of treatment, and in the right hands, it’s able to both help with the pain and treats the underlying cause.
Slipped or Prolapsed Disc
Caused by a tear to the outer fibrous ring of one of your intervertebral discs, the soft portion, in the centre of the disc pushes out. Often it causes inflammation that can be extremely painful. Physiotherapy has two major benefits. It can help by improving your mechanics, the issue that caused the slipped disc. It’s also a great strategy for pain relief because a prolapsed disc can be excruciating.
Sacroiliac joint pain
Your sacroiliac joints are the link between your spine and pelvis. Sometimes these joints adopt an abnormal position, or what’s known as a stress position, which causes SIJ pain. We work with our clients to help to reduce pain and reduce inflammation. Once we got to this point, we also help clients realign the pelvis to reduce the chance of it happening again.
We all know whiplash, it’s a common result of car accidents. It’s when the neck and head are forced in a rapid forward or backward motion. Like a car stopping suddenly. The key to a quick recovery from whiplash is to start some physio quickly, get some range of motion back as quickly as possible and the whiplash will heal quicker. That’s where we help.
It’s a sign of the times that 2.5 million people suffer from daily back pain. It’s due to how much time we spend seated, in office, at home. With bad posture, it can lead to short-term pain and potentially long-term back problems. But it can be fixed, with the right retraining of your posture, and in the meantime, we can help with the pain your in.
But it’s not just with back and neck problems we can help, we’re also expert at dealing with neurological and neuromuscular issues, including the following:
Often with neuromuscular our, physio work is focused on helping to manage pain and limit the severity of the disease or illness that client is suffering with. Here are some of the reasons our clients are using our services:
Stroke sufferers would have suffered from one of two different types of stroke. Ischaemic and hemorrhagic. An ischaemic stroke means blood would have been cut off from reaching the brain, usually by a clot. Whereas, a hemorrhagic stroke occurs as a result of a blood vessel, supply the brain, bursting.
In both cases, physio should be started as soon as possible. It’s demanding and can cover a variety of approaches, including facilitation of movement, posture correction, and external stimulus.
Parkinson’s is a debilitating illness that can manifest itself in many ways. Our expert and experienced physiotherapists are able to help with mobility problems, muscle stiffness, and increasing flexibility.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, degenerative neurological disease, a condition in which the body attacks its own central nervous system. For some, the disease takes hold gradually, but for most, it’s a series of series of relapses. All though it can be different for each sufferer, some of the more common ailments include problems with mobility, balance, fatigue, and spasticity.
Regular and well-structured physio can really help with mobility and balance. It can strengthen the body to combat fatigue. It’s able to reduce the severity of relapses.
Motor Neurone Disease
Physiotherapy is a must for people suffering from Motor Neurone Disease. This is a progressive disease that attacks the nerves (neurons) of the brain and spinal chord. The result is, the messages the brain sends to our muscles start to stop reaching the muscle which leads to muscle deterioration and muscle wastage.
If you work with a physio you’re able to maintain muscle integrity. It also helps with respiratory function and keeping/improving head posture.
Brain injuries, perhaps from car accidents, brain tumors, and strokes, can really benefit from some good physio. Known as acquired brain injuries, physiotherapy can improve mobility and daily function as well as muscle tone and increasing muscle strength.
This isn’t just one disease but rather a group of muscle diseases that, over a period of time, severely weaken and often break down muscles. Often the disorders differ in terms of which muscles are affected and how severe and progressive the disease takes hold.
The physiotherapy is going to help you fight back and slow the deterioration, maintaining muscle integrity and functionality for as long as possible
There are a variety of ailments and diseases that require physio. Everything from Sports Injuries to respiratory problems. Here is a selection of clients we work with, If you need physio for a reason you don’t find on this list, by all means, get in touch, this isn’t a complete list, more of an idea of where our expertise lies.
There is a number of ways that physios can work with clients about sport-related issues. With acute treatment, the first 72 hours after the injury are the most important. Having the right physio at this point can seriously reduce the length of the injury. Obviously, after an injury, rehab is important too. We create tailored exercise and physio programmes for our clients.
We also help pre-match and post-match. This is preventative physio that helps to increase performance, but often, more importantly, to prevent injuries.
Muscle and joint pain
Something like osteoarthritis, especially located in the hip, lower back or knee is going to be helped with some physio. Over 8 million people are suffering from some form of osteoarthritis but with some right manipulation, some of the swelling and discomfort can be eased.
Rheumatoid arthritis is another form of arthritis that is both particularly uncomfortable and manageable with some good, well-structured physio. Even with all the swelling and inflammation, functionality can be maintained if properly managed.
Finally, fibromyalgia, which is finally getting the attention it deserves can also be helped with some physio including deep tissue massage, joint manipulation, and some supported gentle exercise.
Orthopedic patients can include hip or knee replacements and recovery from broken bones. Very often mobility is seriously impaired post surgery and it’s the physio that’s going to help both get back a range of motion that’s functional, reduce swelling which often responsible for pain, and ultimately, to recover from the event.
For clients suffering from pulmonary diseases like chronic bronchitis and emphysema, physio can really help. Symptoms such as shortness of breath, severe “chesty” a cough, possibly with phlegm and wheezing can be reduced with the right physiotherapy.
We can help with managing these symptoms, and also improve tolerance to physical activity.
As our clients move into their retirement years, they start to have more issues with balance and mobility. In fact, in the UK, falls represent the main cause of injury for people over 75. A physiotherapy is a great tool for risk assessing and providing a plan that’s going to limit the potential for a fall as well as dealing with the results of a fall once it’s happened.
Vestibular rehab is an exercised based program that helps with poor balance and dizziness. One of the more common disorders associated with balance is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. It’s a programme the encourages the nervous system to address the problems caused by the inner ear.
This disease can manifest itself in a variety of ways but often our clients call us for help with tremors and small involuntary movements. Our physio looks to improve mobility and functionality, as well as reduced muscle stiffness and overall flexibility.
