Commonly used treatments
At Physio-Works we use a variety of different treatments and therapies depending on your conditions. When you come for an appointment, one of our trained physiotherapists will assess to determine the most effective way forward but here are some of our most common treatments:
Mobilisation and manipulation (Manual Therapy)
This can be administered to the joints or soft tissues and is done by moving the body part with the therapists hands.
For stretching, strengthening and stabilising, exercise is fundamental to all our treatments and we have a computer programme for patients to take home a printed record of their particular programme.
As specialists in occupational health, our physiotherapists are part of occupational health teams delivering care 'on-site' within many of the large Humber bank factories. We help employees remain in work or get back to work quickly and safely, greatly benefitting both employee and employer.
Advice and Self management
This underpins everything we do. Understanding how to best self manage your condition will enhance your speed of recovery.
Treatments such as ultra-sound, interferential and TENS are used at Physio-Works, these will only be used as an adjunct to the 'hands on' treatment.
This involves mobilising and /or manipulating the bodies soft tissues.
