Physiotherapy

 

Physiotherapy is the treatment of a wide range of conditions and injuries to the body through the use of various forms of passive mobilisation, massage, electrotherapy and exercise.

Our spacious premises include treatment rooms and a custom built rehabilitation gym.

The clinic is staffed by a group of therapists and is well equipped with up to date apparatus and equipment required for the treatment provided, including the following:

  • Ultrasound devices
  • T.E.N.S. devices
  • EMG + Muscle stimulation
  • Treadmill for gait analyses
  • Exercise bike

Our Physiotherapy treatments are comprehensive and dont just involve a massage and heat packs!

 

Neck & Back Injuries

If you suffer from a neck or back injury as a result of any of the following, then our qualified therapists are able to provide a full assessment and appropriate treatment.

  • Whiplash
  • Disc problems
  • Postural lower back pain
  • Bending
  • Lifting
  • Stress
  • Headaches

Spinal conditions in particular need to be treated promptly if long term disability and prolonged treatment are to be prevented.

Postural lower back pain can be the start of more significant back problems such as disc problems. Long hours at a computer with poor sitting posture can contribute to lower back pain. See our therapists for ergonomic advice.

Depending on diagnosis, treatment may be administered through a combination of:

  • Mobilisation and manipulation techniques
  • Electrotherapy
  • Exercise
  • Postural advice
  • Core stablising exercises

Whatever the sport and whether injuries be sprains, strains or bruising, a quicker and more thorough recovery will be made if treated early. Treating your injury at Peak Health Centre will speed up the rate of recovery by reducing swelling and preventing joint stiffness. Early treatment will also help minimise tissue damage and provide for a quicker return to active sport.

Get fit to ski or for other strenuous activities. If you are going on a sporting holiday or preparing for a physically demanding activity, then consult one of our therapists to help prepare you and reduce the risk of injury.
