Physiotherapy in Richmond that adapts to you and your lifestyle to maximise the chance of successful recovery. Injury is debilitating and impacts on you, your life, and the lives of those around you.
Physiotherapy in Richmond
Physiotherapy in Richmond by PhysioT aims to restore you to full health and fitness, quickly, sustainably and conveniently. PhysioT operates a dual approach in Richmond, either we come to you via our mobile physiotherapy service, or you come to us at our Sports Injury Clinic in Shepperton. Our mobile service can treat you at home, care or retirement home, or even in the office, whether in preventative physiotherapy such as workstation assessment or conventional injury treatment.
Every patient is unique and therefore so is your injury. There are many factors that contribute to both the cause of injury, as well as the success of rehabilitation. PhysioT makes sure that you are the key to successful recovery, with one of our physiotherapists leading and supporting you all the way.
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function after injury, illness or disability, short or long term, and it is essential to go beyond just treating the obvious injury, but also looking for the more unseen and less obvious factors that cause and influence both injury and your recovery.
Physiotherapy in Richmond by PhysioT likes to treat you in the environment in which you are most comfortable, and that is most convenient for your lifestyle. For some, this is coming to a clinic, and we will happily see you at our clinic located at the Club Moativation, Holiday Inn in Shepperton. But for others, it is more convenient for the physiotherapist to come to you, and treat you in your own environment. This also allows us to assess your space, and see some of the unseen factors that may be influence both injury and your recovery.
In either case, PhysioT Physiotherapy in Richmond will tailor a specific programme to match your unique needs and maximise your chances of sustainable recovery. We will treat you using a range of different techniques such as sports massage, soft and deep tissue massage, joint mobilisation, acupuncture, electrotherapy, ultrasound, stretching and hydrotherapy amongst the most common.
Physiotherapy in Richmond, What We Treat
PhysioT Physiotherapists have a lot of experience in a broad range of injury types, with some of the most common being:
From sudden acute injury to a more gradual onset, muscle tightness, joint stiffness, inflammation and pain. Physiotherapy accelerates recovery through joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage, ultrasound, stretching and strengthening so you can return to your normal physical activities as soon as possible.
Fractures and tendon repairs
Immobilisation follows a fracture or tendon injury, often leading to stiff, tight and weak muscles once out of plaster. Physiotherapy helps accelerate recovery through mobilising joints, stretching and strengthening muscles to assist a return to normal physical activity.
Back & Neck problems
Over 2 million people a year complain of stiff and sore backs and neck pain, with multiple causes, eg: lifting a heavy load, car accident, sleeping awkwardly or sitting with poor posture.
Physiotherapy helps by working on pain relief, range of movement, posture and core stability.
Affected by inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or degenerative processes such as osteoarthritis. Physiotherapy helps reduce swelling and inflammation, restoring movement, stability, and strength, enabling patients to return to normal activity.
Children from young babies to teenagers can be affected by neurological, genetic and musculoskeletal conditions, such as slow physical development, poor posture or sports injury. Physiotherapy works with children to promote independence, participation and help them reach their potential.
From pregnancy discomfort like back pain, sacro-iliac joint dysfunction, symphysis pubis pain, or sciatica to non pregnancy issues like incontinence, abdominal surgery recovery, hysterectomy, and pelvic prolapse. Physiotherapy uses a range of techniques and advice to help improve overall function and well being.
Affects all ages from babies who have not yet learned the reflex to clear their airways, to the elderly impacted by conditions such as pneumonia or bronchitis. Physiotherapy helps by using techniques to clear the lungs and improve breathing and ventilation.
Dealing with terminal illness is very challenging both emotionally and physically for patients, their family and their friends. Physiotherapy can improve the quality of life through some simple techniques that help with pain relief, mobility and independence, providing significant support during a very difficult time.
Millions of people sit at desks every day, often for many hours at a time, yet often in an imperfect position, applying undue stress and pressure to the body without realising it. Bad habits and incorrect posture then lead to short term aches and pains in the back or neck, as well as upper limb problems such as tennis elbow or shoulder tendinitis. Unchecked, these short term aches can turn into profound longer term injury that can really impact daily life and subsequently take much longer to recover from.
A perfect workstation position allows all of the joints to align in a neutral position, avoiding static or awkward posture or repetitive motion, unnecessary leading forwards or bending down, or unnecessary gripping of equipment. Workstation assessment identifies risk factors and eliminates them before they cause injury. This will include adjustments to equipment, seating, desks or even computer software to optimise your working experience.
