Action Physiotherapy Treatment Methods
We work with you towards a faster recovery!
Action Physiotherapy's philosophy is to enable you to become independent from treatment rapidly as possible. We involve you in the process. We share with you our understanding of pain. We show you how you can treat yourself at home. We want you to achieve the fastest recovery possible to full health.
Whilst injuries can reoccur 70% of these can be treated at home with our expert help. Pain can be scary and it is easy to avoid doing something about it. We give you guidance to help you work through this.
The right diagnosis means you’ll be pain-free faster!
Our experienced and fully trained physiotherapists work hard to make sure we get to the root of your condition as soon as possible.
After completing a patient registration form, you will undergo a mechanical assessment to determine how your condition developed and what aggravates your symptoms. Your general health will also be discussed. Your posture will be observed and you will be asked to perform certain movements to see what effects your pain. We will test your strength, mobility and function to help us to diagnose your condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
That plan will most likely include individual exercises that will treat your unique ailment to help you get back to doing the activities you enjoy as soon as possible.
All assessments are confidential.
