Physiotherapy Techniques

Manual Therapy
Manual therapy is a wide scope practice which includes joint mobilisation and manipulation, to help treat soft tissues and joint structures, increasing range of motion, reducing pain, reducing soft tissue inflammation, relaxing the joint structures, encouraging soft tissue repair and improving overall function. 

Soft Tissue Therapy
This includes various massage and stretching techniques designed to ease joint tension, encourage normal movement, improve blood flow, help lymph drainage and allow the body to return to normal function. 

Taping
Taping a technique whereby a specialist tape is applied directly to the skin, helping to encourage and maintain a stable position of bones and muscles during joint and soft tissue recovery. 

Acupuncture
Acupuncture can be a great help for releasing overly tight and sensitive muscles, especially when they are too tender to the pressure of massage. Most will barely feel the needles but notice the difference almost immediately. Acupuncture is typically used alongside other soft tissue and manual therapies.

Exercise Rehabilitation
Sally has a wealth of varying rehabilitative stretches and exercises designed to help support your body back to normal function.  


 

Your Physiotherapist will use gentle and effective techniques to help encourage your body’s own healing mechanisms.

Your First Physiotherapy Appointment

At your first Physiotherapy appointment at Littlehampton Natural Health Centre, we like to spend some time getting to know you, discussing your reasons for visiting the clinic and what you are hoping to achieve. We will complete a physical examination, assess the movement of your body and perform specific tests to help determine the cause of your symptoms. 
Once we are happy we have a good understanding of the cause of your issues, we will explain our findings, recommended care plan and assuming we are both happy, we can then follow through with the first stage of your treatment. Throughout treatment we will also recommend various stretches and exercises to help aid your recovery.

What's Next?

Our main aim at the Littlehampton Natural Health Centre is to improve your quality of life. Whether this is through reducing your pain, increasing flexibility, improving posture, maintaining a healthy body or increasing your performance. We help people manage life in a more positive manner.
 
Before we can offer any treatment or advice we need to find out some details about you. Your Physiotherapist will run through a detailed personal history including details on your symptoms, any medications, operations or past treatments you have had. We will then perform a physical examination to get a good overview of how your body is functioning. This physical will include assessing your joint range of motion, muscle strength, gait, amongst more specific orthopaedic tests. 
 
At the end of the examination, we will explain any findings and our treatment plan. If you are still happy to proceed we will then proceed with treatment.
