We offer physiotherapy in Southend for wide range of conditions at The Body Matters. Physiotherapy treatments are available from our clinic based in Leigh-on-Sea.
Physiotherapists are trained to high standards in order to properly assess and diagnose your condition, treating your issues so that you are able to reach your full potential and to carry on maintaining an active lifestyle.
Physiotherapists work in both the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries and cardiac respiratory conditions. They will often use a variety of prescribed excercises that the patient can carry on with at home. As a result, physio treatments will tend to be quite specific. Physiotherapists are also likely to use machines such as ultrasound or TENS machines to facilitate change in an injured area.
Physiotherapy at The Body Matters
During the initial session you will be assessed to help locate the source of your problem. Once assessed, and the problem has been identified the Chartered Physiotherapist may use any one of a variety of techniques to aid your recovery, thereby helping your muscles and joints work to their full potential.
This may also help repair any damage by speeding up the healing process and reducing the pain and stiffness. These techniques may include manipulation and mobilisation, massage, hydrotherapy, exercise programs, ultrasound and sometimes acupuncture.
Identifying the possible factors that have contributed to your problem in the first place is important in attaining your goal of returning to full fitness. These may be such things as poor posture, improper techniques, muscle imbalances, poor working practices, or other bad habits. This will help prevent the risk of the same thing happening again in the future.
Setting goals during rehabilitation is key for the client to stay positive and motivated. If there are no solid timeframes it can feel much longer to the client, and therefore demoralising. When the negative feelings begin to linger, so does the will to participate in rehabilitation.
