PATIENT led with PHYSIO ADVICE 

 

You're the boss - we don't work with ANY third parties giving you full control of when you come, the treatment you have and which therapist you see.  No PMI providers, no employers - you you.

  

We are a very hands-on, manual therapy type of clinic so you won’t be paying us to just sit and talk AT you!  You’ll get an assessment and treatment during your appointment. 

 

We know that in-clinic treatment is both costly and time consuming so sometimes it’s not the only answer.  This is why we’ll also give you advice on what you can do at home or in the gym to speed up your recovery.  We'll empower you to do the things we can't whilst you're not in clinic.

 

We use a rehab software package to email you beneficial strengthening or stretching programmes with links to online videos and a progress tracker to keep track of your activity.  We’ll help get you back in your "beast mode" as fast as possible.  

 

Physiotherapy is our primary service and we have a several Senior Physiotherapists to pick from offering you flexibility and choice. We provide physio both in our Sheffield clinic and also our at events.  Physiotherapists are highly trained professionals and as such, the title is protected.

Your physiotherapy treatment may involve:

 

  • Mobilisations – Hands on movement of joints to reduce stiffness and relieve pain.
  • Manipulation – Faster movements, which make the joint ‘click’. Helps restore normal movement.
  • Soft Tissue Massage - to reduce scar tissue, relieve muscle spasm and accelerate the healing process.
  • Electrotherapy – Use of machines such as ultrasound and interferential to relieve pain and enhance the healing process.
  • Acupuncture - fine needles inserted in specific areas to help relieve and settle pain
  • Laser Therapy - widely used for rehabilitation and sports injuries 
  • Biomechanical Assessments - top-to-toe screening where we will aim to identify any weaknesses/areas prone to injury and offer advice on how to reduce the injury risk and improve performance.
  • Prevention - Looking at the cause of the injury and developing strategies to prevent recurrence. 
  • Exercise Programmes - To do at the clinic or to take home to help strengthen weak muscles, or stretch those which are tight.
  • Taping - to help the body's natural healing process and provide muscle and joint stability.  IT works by lifting the skin away from the injured area area to help alleviate pain, improve circulation, improve blood circulation and aid lymphatic drainage.
