The aim of our Physiotherapy treatment is to reduce pain, restore strength and movement, and promote function. Following a detailed assessment of your condition an appropriate regime of treatment will be recommended. This may only need to be advice regarding specific exercises and posture management. However, your physiotherapy treatment may also include “hands-on” therapies such as joint manipulation, soft tissue massage techniques, electrotherapy modalities (for example ultrasound and muscle stimulus), and acupuncture which can be very effective in relieving pain.
A few of the many conditions that can be benefitted by receiving physiotherapy:
- Back and neck pain including disc prolapse, sciatica and whiplash
- Shoulder injuries and disorders
- Muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
- Arthritis and Rheumatism
- Joint replacement and other Orthopaedic Surgery
- Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Chronic pain
- Work related injuries and posture disorders
- Sports injuries, for example Tennis/Golfers elbow
Leicester Forest East Physiotherapy Clinic also provides specialist treatment for the elderly including Home Visits for those unable to attend the clinic, for example following hospital admission, as well as Physiotherapy for Sufferers of Neurological Conditions such as Stroke, MS and Parkinsons Disease. If in doubt please contact the clinic and we will be happy to discuss your condition with you.
What to expect
Your initial assessment may last up to 40 minutes and subsequent treatment sessions will take 40 minutes. You may be required to remove outer layers of clothing so that your injury can be assessed fully. Your consent will be requested prior to treatment and your dignity will be maintained at all times. Every opportunity will be given to ask questions about your condition and for you to seek advice regarding its management and prevention in the future. You may of course refuse any of the treatment at any time. Leicester Forest East Physiotherapy Clinic uses up-to-date and evidence based treatments so that you will receive the most appropriate and effective treatment for your condition.
