Manual Physiotherapy is the management of orthopaedic conditions using manual, hands-on therapeutic approaches. These include passive movement of joints and carefully controlled manually guided high velocity low amplitude thrust techniques (manipulation).
Dry Needling is a very successful medical treatment which uses very thin needles, without any medication (a dry needle) to achieve its aim. Dry Needling is used to treat pain and dysfunction caused by muscle problems, sinus trouble, headaches, and some nerve problems.
Physiotherapy plays an important role in rehabilitation post-surgery to help reduce pain, swelling, and stiffness.
I am fully trained in post-surgery rehabilitation, which is important to avoid developing compensatory movements such as a limp following surgery of the leg.
