Respiratory Physiotherapy

Our physiotherapy treatments focus on the patient as a whole. During your initial assessment the whole body is taken into account, not just the injury site. This ensures you get back to your pre-injury self, maybe in even better shape that before. In striving for this excellence, further injury is then less likely.

Post treatment programs are in place to support you following your injury. We offer email support, maintenance programs, ie Once a month tune-ups and exercise sessions in our onsite gymnasium. This way we can follow your progress from initial assessment through to rehabilitation and pain / injury free state.

Our treatments always have a hands on approach as we feel that this is important in the healing aspect.

We use …

  • joint mobilisations
  • Massage
  • Exercise
  • Dry needling
  • Electrotherapy
  • Heat and cold therapy
  • Quadripolar magnet therapy

We hear the saying all the time ‘I should have called you earlier’ Don’t put up with pain … make a physiotherapy appointment today
