    During physical activity it is possible to sustain a variety of muscle and joint problems. Physical therapy is important for a successful recovery and swift return to normal activity.

    Our  consultants will undertake a clinical evaluation that involves:

    • Observation

    • Palpation of soft tissues

    • Active and passive range of motion testing

    • Orthopaedic tests appropriate to your condition

    • Referral for Ultrasound , MRI, CT, and x-ray if needed

     

     

     

     

    Our consultants will give a clinical opinion and explain your condition using visual aids, computer animations or anatomical models,

    We will propose a therapy pathway explaining how we intend to manage your problem and provide a guideline for expected rate of improvement. In addition we set a time scale for regular re-evaluation to ensure that you are achieving proposed targets..
