Physiotherapy is about helping people to achieve their maximum potential through movement and function. This will mean different things to each of us – be it preparing for the London marathon or triathlon, training hard in the gym or simply allowing us to sit pain free at work.

At Complete Physio, we are vastly experienced to treat a very broad range of conditions. Dedicated to helping you achieve your goals, we will work closely with you through the entire rehabilitation process to ensure they are met, whatever your challenge may be.

1. Back, neck and spinal pain

Experience teaches us that no two back pain sufferers are the same. There are common and often predictable patterns, but overall presentation will always be unique. Thorough analysis is key, making communication between the therapist and patient vital.

All of our therapists are highly skilled - taking precise history and analysing movement dysfunctions to form accurate diagnosis to facilitate optimal treatment and management strategies.

Some common patient complaints include:

  • Whiplash injuries
  • Headaches
  • Discogenic lesions ‘Slipped disc’
  • Muscular back pain
  • Posture related back and neck problems
  • Chronic pain

2. Sports injuries

If you have painful joints or muscles as a result of sport, we can help. We have a proven record in the treatment of running related injuries e.g. Achilles tendon problems, muscle tears and knee pain. We are also experts in sports massage and biomechanical analysis to ensure that your running technique is not going to slow you down or cause you injury. It is our aim to help you reach your goals and achieve your sporting potential.

We often see:

  • Tendon sprains and strains e.g. Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, tennis elbow and ligament sprains
  • Acute muscular injuries/tears
  • Chronic overuse injuries – biomechanical problems

We are here to get you back up and running (literally, in some instances) following major surgery or an injury.

3. Post surgical rehabilitation

  • ACL reconstruction
  • Arthroscopy
  • Shoulder decompression or rotator cuff repair

4. Post fracture rehabilitation

  • Expert rehabilitation post trauma to ensure fast return to full function and sport

What to Expect

The initial consultation will normally require 45 minutes depending on the complexity of your problem. The physiotherapist will conduct a thorough initial clinical assessment to identify the source of your symptoms and uncover any underlying causes. The findings will be discussed with you.

It is important for you to have a full understanding of your problem so that an agreed plan of action can be implemented. In addition to treating your injury, we want to particularly focus on helping you achieve your specific individual goals. Treatment would normally begin in this session.

Follow-up consultations/treatments are 30-45 minutes. During these sessions your symptoms will be reviewed and treatment conducted on a session-by-session basis.

A spot of housekeeping: It is advisable to bring a pair of shorts if the problem is related to your leg or lower back. For ladies we recommend you wear a vest top if your complaint relates to your upper body/neck.
