Orthopaedic & MSK Physiotherapy
We are all Chartered Physiotherapists and undergo three years of training culminating in a degree in physiotherapy. We may then have chosen to specialise in certain areas. Such as post-graduate qualifications in manipulative or sports physiotherapy biomechanics, acupuncture.
Physiotherapists can review work specific or sport specific problems. They can assist in self-assessment of the workstation and do a specialised review and report for the Employer.
If you are going on a sporting holiday or preparing for a physically demanding activity, then consult a physiotherapist to help prepare you and reduce the risk of injury.
Long hours at a computer with poor sitting posture can contribute to lower back pain. Depending on diagnosis, treatment may be through a combination of: Mobilisation and manipulation techniques, Electrotherapy and Exercise, postural advice and education, ergonomic evaluation and core stabilising exercises.
