Physiotherapy or Sports Therapy?
There are many similarities in the services provided. Both require degree level qualification and both require membership of their relevant governing bodies.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
Sports Therapists are trained specifically to deal with sports or activity related injury, and are specialised in recognising, treating and rehabilitating sports injuries.
If you are unsure as to whether you should book in with one of our Physios or our Sports Therapist, please call the clinic on 01487 843844 to discuss
TREATMENT TECHNIQUES AT HARDING PHYSIOTHERAPY
We use a wide selection of treatment techniques (some outlined below) to optimise your body’s healing processes following an injury, therefore reducing pain and stiffness, increasing range of movement and improving your level of function.
HANDS ON TREATMENTS & HOME EXERCISE
In addition to this, treatment is complimented with individual, evidence based rehabilitation programs for you to carry out at home. Your therapist will advise you which treatments would be most suited to treating your symptoms. The combined approach of hands on treatments and home exercise programs helps to promote an effective recovery in the optimum time frame.
Treatment during your appointment is likely to be a combination of techniques, such as those outlined below:
Soft tissue release
Taping or strapping
Acupuncture or electro-acupuncture
Muscle energy techniques
Postural correction – including activity pacing, car and work station set up
