Shock Wave Therapy

This is a form of treatment that has been developed to aid recovery especially with chronic conditions. Shockwaves are applied to the tissue to stimulate metabolic activity and ‘kickstart’ the body’s natural healing response. It has proven extremely effective for conditions such as

    • Plantar Fasciitis
    • Achilles Tendinopthay
    • Tennis Elbow
    • Patellar Tenonopthay

This treatment will be used as part of an overall treatment plan combining physiotherapy techniques and specific rehabilitation.

Vestibular Disorders (Dizziness)

One of our physiotherapists Kirsty has specialised in treating patients suffering from dizziness, vertigo or impaired balance. It is possible to significantly reduce dizziness and improve balance using specialised vestibular exercises and treatment techniques, which are designed to re-calibrate the balance system. While the outcomes are dramatic for some, others have to work hard to improve and better manage their symptoms.

Tempromandibular Disorders (TMDs) and headaches relating to the neck

Temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) is the term used for a group of musculoskeletal(MSK) conditions that involve the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and the masticatory muscles. TMDs are the most common source of non-odontogenic orofacial pain in the United Kingdom. 

What are temporomandibular disorders (TMDs)? 

  • TMDs are jaw problems that affect the chewing muscles and the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint or TMJ). 
  • Symptoms often include:
    • Pain in the jaw joints and the chewing muscles
    • Jaw joint noises (clicking)
    • Reduced opening of the jaw
    • Difficulty with jaw activities such as chewing

What are neck-related headaches (cervicogenic headaches)?

  • Neck-related headaches are headaches that are associated with neck problems such as neck pain and restricted neck movement.

Physiotherapy can be beneficial for patients suffering with TMDs and neck related headaches. A full assessment will be given and discussion to explore contributing factors. Treatment is evidence based and can use a variety of techniques including manual therapy, stretches, acupuncture, an exercise programme and education.
