Common Conditions

Many painful conditions affecting the human body have a physical origin and are normally the result of a work/sport injury (i.e straining the back muscles or twisting the knee), overuse injuries (i.e thumb pain from using a computer all day or tennis elbow), or simply wear and tear of day to day life eventually deconditioning the body.

Work and sporting injuries will normally recover with a sensible mix of rest and then gradual graded return to activity, but wear and tear problems normally require a significant change to lifestyle, combined with an exercise programme to improve tissue healthiness and in most cases improve posture.

 

A THOROUGH ASSESSMENT IS PARAMOUNT

A thorough assessment is paramount in resolving painful conditions and physiotherapists are experts in identifying physical causes of pain, whether it be nerve, muscle, ligament, tendon or blood vessels.

Once the cause of pain is found a reasoned approach can then be used to address the issue and hopefully resolve any pain arising from the offending tissue.

 

WAYS AND TECHNIQUES TO RESOLVE PAIN AND INJURIES

Physios use many ways and techniques to resolve pain and injuries including specific exercises to improve strength/flexibilty/function/posture, mobilisation/manipulation of joints and soft tissues, and occasionally electrotherapy.

Only occasionally do people with pain need surgery and due to the risks involved surgery is performed less and less these days (Remember 1% of people die on the theatre table!)
