Physiotherapy and treatment

Physiotherapists strive to promote mobility, movement, strength and the ability to do things (known as function) through accurate examination, diagnosis, physical intervention and on-going evaluation.

Your first visit will last approximately an hour. During this initial consultation, the clinician will take a detailed history from you and perform an examination. There will also usually be time for some initial treatment. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing – shorts may be required. A chaperone will be offered if required, or you are welcome to bring a friend or family member with you. All under 16’s must have a responsible adult with them at all times by law.

After a discussion about your diagnosis, the Physiotherapist will suggest a treatment plan, if appropriate, and you may receive instruction on a home programme of exercises as well as details of what we can do. This may include, massage, manipulation ,acupuncture and home exercises, to name a few. Most of our Physiotherapists have an acupuncture qualification and we also have a fully trained traditional acupuncturist available. All treatments will only be carried out with your consent and after a full explanation.

At Border Physio Clinic, a wide variety of conditions and problems are successfully treated. These include back pain, neck pain, wear and tear problems related to osteoarthritis, sporting injuries, work related problems, recovery after joint bone or ligament surgery and overuse injuries.

Follow-up appointments are offered as appropriate, these usually last around 40 minutes and after a review of treatment/progress further treatment will be offered.
