Physiotherapy is the restoration of movement and function from injury, illness or disability. We can achieve this through a number of methods from manual therapy, structured exercise and movement to education and advice.
At Global Therapies we take a “whole person” view of health and well-being – ensuring your lifestyle is taken into account when treating and offering advice. Your involvement in your own care is key. A blend of scientifically led knowledge, our own clinical expertise and your investment in the journey back to health makes for a good recovery from illness and injury.
Our approach is not a passive one where you arrive, receive some kind of arcane electrotherapy and a sheet of exercises before being shoved out of the door. We believe in the power of knowledge – both of your problem, and how to make it better. It is important to understand why something hurts or has a reduced level of movement of function, what we can do to help restore that to better function, and, importantly, what we can do, (and why), to help get back to normal.
Prior to becoming a physiotherapist I remember that one of the worst things about going to see a “professional” was the fear they will say “you can’t run/cycle/swim/play golf for the next 4 months”. When you live your sport, that kind of time off can quite simply seem like an impossibility, and that the therapist really doesn’t understand you and your problem.
So we try not to do that. However, we do need to be realistic about the chances of healing under the increased mechanical stress of continuing to practice sport, while understanding that inevitably, there are those that will want to carry on doing their chosen activities.
If we think that a rest from a particular sport is a necessity (which isn’t as common as you might think), we work with you to provide alternatives and physical and psychological support in your quest to attain functionality and ability again.
