The job of a physiotherapist is to assist the patient in returning to their normal physical function – whatever that may be.
It can involve treating a professional athlete to ensure a full and early return to competition or helping an elderly person to regain independence at home.
The skills a physiotherapist requires are as varied as the conditions they see.
At Fountain Square Physio we have a team that covers all possible conditions. There are therapists specialising in paediatrics to those used to treating professional footballers.
Amongst other conditions, we treat:
Some sporting injuries result from a single incident, but other causes include a failure to warm up adequately, using equipment incorrectly, poor technique, repetitive movements or training too hard. Continuing with the activity without investigating the cause of the problem and treating the injury appropriately can lead to further problems.
Following a surgical procedure such as a hip or knee replacement, muscle or tendon repair, ligament reconstruction or fracture repair of the foot, ankle or shoulder, physiotherapy has shown to help patients recover and regain strength much quicker in the affected part of the body. By using gentle manipulation of the affected joints and muscles, using a carefully constructed rehabilitation programme.
