Conditions We Treat

Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function - through exercise, manual therapy, education and advice - when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

Physiotherapists use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different body systems, such as:

Musculoskeletal - this term simply means our muscles and skeleton

We treat all types of musculoskeletal (msk) aches and pains, which can often be brought on by the demands of everyday life such as carrying shopping bags, carrying children or gardening plus the more general wear and tear on our bodies as we get older. We also treat chronic and progressive conditions such as Arthritis, advising on posture and maintaining or increasing flexibility through treatment and exercise. We also treat acute injuries such as whiplash which may be as a result of a car accident where treatment would consist of gentle Physiotherapy which can help restore full mobilisation and alleviate the pain that this type of injury can cause.

  • Shoulder tendonitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis & Golfers elbow
  • Back pain
  • Neck & shoulder pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

(please always check to see that the treatment is covered under your policy).

Sports Injuries

We treat all the usual aches and pains associated with sports injuries including muscle tears, ligament strains and ruptures, from activities such as rugby, football, golf and cycling. We offer a personal service and will work with you throughout your treatment offering support and advice on all aspects of your injury.

Runners knee (ITB)

Illitiobial band syndrome or runners knee as it is known can affect both professional runners and casual runners. Pain most commonly occurs around the outside of the knee or just above it. Physiotherapy treatment will include hip stretches and abductions to increase overall hip strength. We will work on gradually increasing strength aiming to get you back to training as quickly and as safely as possible.

Stingers

Stingers most commonly occur in footballers, cyclists, gymnasts, but can also be found in other types of sports. As suggested, a stinging or burning sensation will be felt in the collar bone or (clavicle) as the result of a blow or injury to the shoulder. Initial treatment is rest but if symptoms persist physiotherapy may be required. We will carry out an assessment to ascertain levels of movement and nerve function through simple tests and observation. We may however, according to your needs, recommend that you have an X- ray before starting any treatment. If this is not necessary, your physiotherapy treatment will start straight away. Working with you, we will devise a treatment plan, to include stretches aimed at restoring function and mobility initially and then recommend further strengthening exercises to prevent future injury.

Achilles tendinopathy

Achilles tendon injuries- most commonly occur in male runners. The first sign of this type of injury will usually begin with a stiffness near the back of the heel and may travel as far as the calf. Treatment will include exercises to heal the tendon and calf stretching followed by further strength and mobility exercises which will be tailored to the individual to prevent future injury.

Plantar fasciitis

This often affects runners and pain is felt in the heel of the foot at the beginning of exercise, but may reduce throughout the duration of the run. Depending on individual requirements, some manipulation may be carried out and an individual treatment plan of calf and foot exercises will be devised. Advice on footwear and optional support aids such as arch supports will also be discussed with you.

Dancing Injuries

Students who are at the beginning of their career, training to be professional dancers or attend theatrical or drama schools can suffer a variety of injuries and strains which may interfere with their training and auditioning plans. Injuries may occur simply through overuse, muscular imbalance or lack of flexibility or for any other number of reasons. Our Physiotherapist's will carry out a detailed Initial assessment and devise an individual treatment plan, tailoring it to the individual, working closely with them, monitoring their progress and recovery at every stage.

Orthopaedic rehabilitation

We treat people pre op whilst they are waiting for their procedure and post op once this has been done. We can treat any type of joint replacement surgery such as knees, hips, shoulders and elbows as well as cruciate ligament reconstructions and after spinal injections for chronic conditions such as arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis. We will assess the individual and then devise a treatment plan to include strengthening exercises to gradually improve movement and mobility to its optimum level.

Iliotibal band syndrome

The iliotibial band (ITB) is a connective tissue that runs from two of the muscles around the hip down to the outside of the tibia. During exercise such as running, where there is repetitive flexion and extension of the knee, friction can build up where the ITB rubs over the outer aspect of the knee, causing pain and sometimes swelling.

Top Tip: Stretching the ITB and soft tissue massage can both help to alleviate or prevent this.

If you need help or advice, contact me any time at the clinic. Best wishes, Alex, Physio. For more information on the conditions we treat and services we offer, or to book an appointment please call 01483 575876 / 01483 302691 or email us at info@guildfordphysio.org
