Our Techniques

The Physiotherapists at Kingsmead Physiotherapy Clinic are manual therapists which means that, once a treatment plan has been decided, treatment techniques can include:

Manual Therapy

A hands on clinical approach to Physiotherapy which may include soft tissue and joint mobilisation and manipulation.  These techniques are used to assess and treat soft tissue and joint structures to help relieve pain and improve function.

Exercise Therapy

Part of our treatment programme will be specific exercise regimes to further improve posture and function.  These exercises may include core stability, strengthening or be proprioceptive based and can include the use of wobble boards, balance balls, incline boards and other equipment to facilitate the exercises.

Electrotherapy

These modalities which include laser, ultrasound, tens and interferential therapy are used in conjunction with manual techniques to further enhance soft tissue repair and return to full function.

Postural/Work Station and Manual Handling advice

Advice to prevent or cure pain associated with poor posture both when standing and sitting; particularly at the work station.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is a therapy programme utilising the properties of water, designed by a suitably qualified Physiotherapist specifically for an individual to improve function, carried out by appropriately trained personnel, ideally in a purpose built and suitably heated aquatic therapy pool which we have at our disposal.

Sports Massage

Massage is recorded as one of the earliest forms of physical therapy and it is known that it was used by very different cultures over 3000 years ago.

In all types of massage, the therapist has specific aims in mind, and in sport we focus on the individual needs of the person or athlete.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the many skills used within physiotherapy as an integrated approach to the management of pain, inflammation and as a means of enhancing the body’s own healing chemicals to aid recovery and enhance rehabilitation.
