  • Physiotherapy is used to treat and optimise the recovery of a wide range of conditions and injuries.  At the Physiotherapy and Acupuncture Clinic, Petersfield we see patients with neck, back (including sacro-iliac joint), shoulder, elbow, hand, hip, knee and ankle conditions, as well as joint, muscle, ligament and tendon problems in any other part of the body.

    These may be caused by various problems including poor posture, repetitive activities, arthritis, biomechanical disorders, and injuries including sporting, accidental or work related. We also treat patients requiring rehabilitation following surgery or fractures / broken bones.

    Patients will receive a comprehensive assessment of their condition and a treatment plan is then devised; aiming to resolve pain and inflammation, encourage tissue healing, restore normal range of motion, to enable return to normal activities and reduce the risk of recurrence.

    Pain lasting longer than three months is called persistent or chronic. It has been shown that the more we understand about pain and about the things which contribute to our pain, the more we can change it, so you will be given information about pain to increase your understanding of why it occurs, and what you can do about it.

    Treatments include:

  • joint mobilisations

  • soft tissue therapy including trigger point release and myofascial release

  • ultrasound

  • acupuncture

  • exercise – including stretching, proprioceptive, strengthening and stablility / core exercises

  • advice on a range of topics including pain science, ergonomics (working positions), ways to speed up recovery at home, posture, sleeping positions, prevention of recurrence and more.

    The initial appointments are 60 minutes with most follow up sessions lasting 40 – 45 minutes.
