If you become injured, we can help to speed up your recovery time using various techniques such as ultrasound, electrotherapy, soft tissue massage and medical acupuncture. After we’ve corrected your injury, we can design a rehabilitation programme to reduce the risk of the injury reoccurring.
As primary healthcare professionals our osteopaths and physiotherapists, in addition to their clinical skills, have been trained to undertake detailed medical histories and a comprehensive range of clinical examinations in an effort to diagnose the cause of your symptoms. It is due to this extensive training that they are able to determine if you may need to be referred on for further tests to determine an accurate diagnosis, or if your condition may require the intervention of another health professional.
