Physiotherapy in Littlehampton
Physiotherapy aims to restore optimum movement to the joints of the body, helping to improve overall function and mobility. When someone is affected by injury, illness or disability, Physiotherapists can help provide treatment through manipulation, mobilisation, soft tissue therapy, exercises & stretches, manual therapy, education and advice.
What is Physiotherapy?
Manual therapy is a wide scope practice that includes joint mobilisation and manipulation, to help treat soft tissues and joint structures, increase range of motion, reduce pain, reduce soft tissue inflammation, relax the joint structures, encourage soft tissue repair and improve 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 is 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 can be a great help for releasing overly tight and sensitive muscles, especially when they are too tender for the pressure of the massage. Most will barely feel the needles but notice the difference almost immediately. Acupuncture is typically used alongside other soft tissue and manual therapies.
Prehab is a proactive approach to avoiding pain and injury. It's as simple as an additional exercise, or range of motion exercise that is done to ensure that an injury does not occur. This refers to improving your functional capacity through increased physical activity before an anticipated surgery.
Your Physiotherapist has a wealth of varying rehabilitative stretches and exercises designed to help support your body back to normal function.
