More than just a massage!

Combining traditional hands on techniques with cutting edge electro-therapies our Consultant Physiotherapist, Estelle Mitchell works to achieve fast, effective results.

From sports injuries to long standing pain and rehabilitation after surgery, physiotherapy can help with a wide range of conditions.

Simple, honest and accurate advice to get you back to health and fitness.

Joint, muscle or nerve pain? Physiotherapy is a science-based healthcare profession and helps you return to health and pain free movement. We find effective solutions for long term, recurring, multiple or complex problems throughout your whole body. Many people believe that physiotherapy is nothing more than a relaxing massage. In reality, a properly qualified and experienced physiotherapist can do so much more and has so many more options.

What we treat?

Anything that stops you moving freely. That can be problems in the joints, muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons, discs in your spine, broken bones or surgery. In fact, any condition which causes you pain, stiffness or weakness.

Our Consultant Physiotherapist, Estelle Mitchell is a musculoskeletal specialist. As the name suggests she can work with and treat every muscle in your body and every bone in your skeleton and all the bits that make you move.

How we treat it

This is the most important part of any treatment.

You and your physiotherapist need a clear, detailed understanding of what the problem actually is. This can take a little while as our Consultant will need to take a detailed history (make sure you have any X-rays, MRI scans or Doctors’ letters with you!) of your symptoms, then she will need to do a thorough physical examination.

You will most likely be asked to remove certain items of clothing to do this. This is so important as you are so much more than just pictures and words! How you move and respond can tell an experience and qualified physiotherapist so much.

For more information on your first appointment please read our article – How to get the most from your appointment

And the most important point is that YOU will also understand the problem, we make sure it is explained to you in simple, plain English. Then we can discuss all the options you have to feel better.

Treatment

This will be a combination of hands on, traditional methods, the most up to date and relevant technologies and exercise. Your treatment programme will be designed specifically for you and will be based on the latest research and findings. Our Consultant Physiotherapist, Estelle Mitchell works hard to be up to date on the latest methods so that she can get you better as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Sessions will be a combination of pain relief and then rehabilitation. There is no point teaching you an exercise if it hurts too much to do it!

We have found that taking the time to do a detailed and accurate assessment in the first place, so that we are treating the correct problem from the beginning, means that many of our patients spend less time (and money!) getting better. Our aim is to get you moving as quickly as possible, as comfortably as possible.
