Physiotherapy is recognised as being another excellent treatment for low back pain, neck and shoulder pain and, like osteopathy, treatment of any joint or muscle pain in the body. Typically physiotherapists are very good at rehabilitaion of muscle, tendon and ligament strains from sports injuries and accidents and minimising the degeneration caused by osteo-arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession that maximises a persons ability to move and function and therefore improving their health, wellbeing and quality of life. The Royal Charter gives physiotherapy scope to use a variety of techniques to aid recovery, from post-operative care to treatment of injuries on the sports field. Chronic pain associated with for example, arthritis, fibromyalgia or disc prolapse can also be managed effectively with physiotherapy. At About Backs & Bones, physiotherapy is primarily used to treat acute pain from back pain, shoulder and neck pain, hip and knee pain as well as other joint and muscle strains and rehabilitation of tendon and ligament strains. The specialised kinetic control exercises and electrotherapy is what makes physiotherapy different to osteopathy in our clinic.
