Welcome to my Physiotherapy Clinic
What to expect:
At the initial treatment session, Orla will take a detailed account of the problem, followed by a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis.
The most appropriate treatment will be discussed and given at your first appointment. You will be advised on the estimated recovery time and self-management for a speedy return to full fitness.
Physiotherapy aims to:
- Encourage tissue healing by controlling and reducing pain and inflammation
- Restore the patient’s normal range of motion by integrating their muscular, joint and nervous systems
- Identify and treat problems and reduce the risk of recurrence
Your utmost care and privacy is assured at all time and all treatments will be carried out using modern up to date and research backed techniques. Questions always welcome!
