Improving how you hold your core posture, your shoulder position and the timing of muscle activation will help your shoulder move better with less pain. Shoulder impingement and bursitis require specific movement retraining to reduce the likelihood of progression to rotator cuff disease.
Ligaments are connective tissue joining bone to bone, overloading the ligament can cause ligament sprains.
Tendons join muscle to their bony attachment, and tendon strains can occur with repeated loading. Deloading the tendon will assist recovery and then gradual strengthening is required for conditions such as gluteal tendonopathy, patella tendonopathy or achilles tendonopathy.
Our physiotherapists assess how you stand and walk. Your feet may be the cause of other issues in your body. We treat conditions of the feet with joint mobilisation, soft tissue massage, dry needling, taping, foot exercises and mouldable orthotics. We will liase or refer you to your podiatrist if required.
Physiotherapy treatment for orthopaedic conditions may include:
Post operative recovery from orthopaedic surgery may include treatment in the rooms, in the pool for hydrotherapy or your local gym.
Children and teens with muscle, ligament or tendon injury respond well to modification to activity levels in the short term. Effective assessment will establish if the condition requires further treatment or investigation.
Hypermobility conditions may require more structured strengthening and management to prevent joint dislocations. The knee is the most likely joint for injury if you have underlying joint hypermobility. You can learn how to avoid injury with hamstring strengthening and joint awareness exercises.
