The Physiotherapy clinic is following all Covid 19 guidelines for safe practice.
At Acuphysio, you will receive expert, dedicated care aiming to diagnose, treat and manage your problem, all delivered in a friendly and relaxed way.
You will receive a thorough assessment where you be asked questions about your problem, your medical history will be taken and a physical examination conducted.
Treatment will commence on your first appointment and you will often be given exercises and advice to compliment the treatment provided in clinic.
Physiotherapists are manual therapists who treat and rehabilitate all kinds of injuries. Techniques such as joint and spinal mobilisations and manipulations, stretching and soft tissue mobilisations are used to help restore movement and alleviate pain.
Physio aims to improve joint mobility, muscle flexibility and strengthen weak muscles or imbalances. Rehabilitation exercises are often prescribed, customised to every patient.
Electrotherapy devices such as therapeutic ultrasound may be used or taping and strapping techniques may be beneficial.
Every patient is treated individually and methods will be adapted for each individual.
Every patient and every injury is different. Sometimes one session is enough to diagnose, reassure and get you going, for others, a course of treatment is recommended. If your problem has not improved as expected after 3 sessions, the therapy will be reviewed and recommendations for another specialist or investigations will be discussed.
