Louise Hammond has 26 years experience as a chartered physiotherapist. She started this clinic in Petersfield in 2016, with the aim of providing quality, individualised physiotherapy and acupuncture treatment, with time to properly listen and assist people to recover from painful conditions without feeling rushed, aiming to help devise a plan to encourage recovery and reduce the chance of recurrence.

Conditions treated include:

  • Back pain
  • Sciatica
  • cropped-Louise.jpegNeck pain and stiffness
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Nerve entrapment and pain
  • Arthritis and rheumatism
  • Persistent / chronic pain
  • Hand and wrist conditions 
  • Joint problems
  • Muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
  • Post operative rehabilitation
  • Post fracture rehabilitation
  • Physiotherapy is used to treat and optimise the recovery of a wide range of conditions and injuries.  At the Physiotherapy and Acupuncture Clinic, Petersfield I see patients with neck, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee and ankle conditions, as well as joint, muscle, ligament and tendon problems in any other part of the body, and conditions which have been going on for a long time.

    These may be caused by various problems including recent overloading, repetitive activities, arthritis, biomechanical disorders, and injuries including sporting, accidental or work related. I 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 discussed; aiming to resolve pain and inflammation, encourage tissue healing, restore normal range of motion, 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 can contribute to our pain, the more we can change it, and that learning more about pain helps increase our understanding of why it occurs, and what we can do about it.

    Treatments include:

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

  • In depth discussions about your day to day activities,including work, to enable and empower you to help your condition during your daily activities
  • soft tissue therapy including trigger point release and myofascial release

  • joint mobilisations

  • acupuncture

  • exercise – including mobility, strengthening, proprioceptive, and  stretching exercises

  • ultrasound

The initial appointments are 70 minutes long, and follow up sessions 45 minutes.
