PHYSIOTHERAPY

Physiotherapy is about helping people to achieve their maximum potential through movement and function

At Complete we see physiotherapy as a way of relieving pain, optimising physical function, and ultimately improving performance, whatever form that takes.

We specialise in treating musculoskeletal problems, involving injury to structures such as joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and nerves.  Injuries can occur due to a specific traumatic incident, such as twisting an ankle whilst playing football or dislocating a shoulder when falling off a bike.  Injury can also occur from simply putting the body under too much strain before it has developed the strength to tolerate it, for example trying to run too far too soon.

While it is more common for people to seek physiotherapy when they are injured or in pain, physiotherapists can also help with preventing injury by identifying underlying physical deficits.  By addressing these, you can reduce your risk of injury in the future, particularly if you are about to take up a new sport or type of exercise.

So, if you have any pain or injury, whether from sitting at your desk too much or due to a sporting mishap, or even if you just want to improve your physical condition and performance, we are here to help you.

What can physiotherapy help with?

What to expect?

On your first visit, you will be asked about your current problem and the impact on your life and activities. Your physiotherapist will want to know about previous injuries, your general medical heath, and your physical goals.  They will then perform a physical examination to establish what anatomical structure/s are the source of your pain, and what underlying factors might be contributing to the problem, such as weakness or biomechanical issues.  From here, your physio will discuss the findings and consider the treatment options with you to achieve your specific goals.  The treatment plan is tailored to you.  Follow-up sessions will continue the treatment process and any adjustments, based on how you present, can be made to the plan.

What forms of treatment can be offered?

  • Manual therapy: including joint mobilisations or manipulations and soft tissue techniques such as massage.
  • Exercise rehabilitation: to strengthen, mobilise, and stretch specific areas.
  • Movement analysis and correction: to improve alignment, movement patterns, reduce the load on sensitive tissues, and improve performance.
  • Acupuncture/needling: can be helpful in relieving pain and relaxing muscles.
  • Education and advice: one of the most important and effective aspects of rehabilitation is to understand more about the problem and the best ways to facilitate and take part in your own recovery.  You will be given a clear explanation of the diagnosis and any other underlying causes, and we will discuss what is required to address these issues and reach your goals.
  • Cycle clinic: if you have problems specifically related to cycling, this is the place for you.
  • Ultrasound Guided Injections: these can be very useful if pain is not settling down in a timely fashion by using other means, and where it is interfering with your ability to undertake your specific rehabilitation exercise.

About our physiotherapists

All our physiotherapists are registered with and regulated by the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and the CSP (Chartered Society of Physiotherapy).  They are a highly experienced team, and many have developed advanced and extended scope qualifications in areas such as diagnostic ultrasound and injection therapy.  They combine vast experience gained across all sectors – private, NHS, and many areas within professional/elite sport.

What next?

If you are suffering with pain or injury that’s stopping you do the things you enjoy or need to do, if you have niggles that are annoying you, or if you have some specific sporting/fitness challenges you want to prepare for, then we can help.
