Physiotherapy

We offer treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal injuries and their associated pain and functionally limiting problems. Whether caused by sports, occupational demands or an accident, the aim is to control the pain and instigate healing and return to a good quality of life.

With over 30 years experience in Physical Education and Orthopedic Physiotherapy, we have a broad base of experience to offer. Consultation is an important part of our ethos, we aim to make the patient the centre of the treatment and take into account, their expectations and requirements.  The whole treatment process is patient-led with choice and providing information and answers.

Conditions do not always require long intervention, often one or two sessions with self-management strategies, can solve your problem.  We also offer a no obligation policy, you are welcome to come along and gain any information and take it away with you. Where appropriate, we may combine treats with acupuncture to enhance the healing process


My practice is based around a manipulative approach to conditions and very specific exercise therapy to condition and rehabilitate.  I believe that physical exercise should be appropriate to the individual and the condition and is often more mild self-manipulation rather than harsh intense work-outs.

 

I am a highly experienced physiotherapist in the West Midlands. I practice joint manipulation and specific neural mobilizations to control the pain associated with conditions and restore function.

Physiotherapy works in three stages. 

  • Firstly, the important thing is to control the pain and make you feel more comfortable.

  • Secondly, with the pain under control, the key is to restore function to the area involved, allowing normal living and work demands.

  • Thirdly, the conditioning stage is key in preventing a recurrence of the problem and hardening against occupational and recreational demands.

The type of things that I help people with include

  • Joint problems – arthritis, injury, pain and swelling, stiffness in joint

  • Injuries – to muscles ligaments, cartilage and tendons. Work related conditions such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) and sports injuries

  • Spinal problems – like prolapsed discs, degeneration, sciatica, lumbago, stiff and painful necks and referred arm and leg pains
