What sort of treatments do Chartered Physiotherapists use?
The Chartered Physiotherapist uses a wide range of skills including manipulation, mobilisation, massage and exercises, often aided by the use of sophisticated electronic and electrical apparatus - all designed to help in the relief of pain and to promote healing.
Preventative measures are very important in physiotherapy. The Chartered Physiotherapist will spend time teaching the patients how to avoid a recurrence of his/her problem.
How does a Chartered Physiotherapist decide the best form of treatment?
The Chartered Physiotherapist undertakes a thorough assessment of each problem. This will involve the history of your condition, a physical examination, together with an understanding of your work, rest and recreational activities.
The full assessment may identify a problem, which is situated some distance from where the pain is felt. It also ensures that the diagnosis and treatment will relate to you and your whole lifestyle. After full consultation with you and, where appropriate, with your doctor, the Chartered Physiotherapist will decide on the best form of treatment.
How does the Chartered Physiotherapist differ from the “alternative” forms of healing?
The methods used by “alternative” therapies differ widely, but most of the theories and principles, which govern them, are included as standard practice in Chartered Physiotherapy, which is the “orthodox” alternative.
As Chartered Physiotherapists we strive to use only scientifically proven, evidence based treatments. This “best practice” approach provides optimum care to our clients.
