Physiotherapists are specialists in pain relief.
Here at the Physiotherapy Clinic we offer a range of treatments geared towards effective pain relief. We pride ourselves at using current research proven techniques and all our Physios regularly attend courses to update their skills.
The treatment approach may depend on the nature of your pain and how long you have had it for.
Current research supports the use of acupuncture and electro acupuncture for both acute and chronic pain relief.
This works by creating a reaction to the needle and current passed through it. The body releases endorphins in response to the stimulus which is a natural painkiller that our bodies produce.
Our physiotherapists may also use electrotherapy i.e. ultrasound and interferential and can also guide you on the correct use of a TENS machine which can help to provide relief at home.
We are also very keen on a “hands on” approach which includes joint loosening and various forms of soft tissue massage and release.
After your thorough assessment, your physiotherapist will outline your goals of treatment and the best approach for this.
