The benefits of Physiotherapy & Osteopathy in pain management
Physiotherapy is a vital aspect of pain management for a wide range of conditions. Our Physiotherapist Meghan has her Masters in Pain Management.
Many pain management strategies, such as medication or intervention techniques, will provide only temporary relief of your symptoms. Our goal is to provide a long-term solution to your pain by addressing the underlying cause. For this reason we may recommend that you undertake physiotherapy in conjunction with other appropriate pain management techniques.
Physiotherapy is used to treat both acute and persistent pain conditions. Where your pain is the result of musculoskeletal or nerve trauma, physiotherapy can be particularly effective at rehabilitating the area. By strengthening and retraining your body to recover from injury, we can help to prevent acute conditions from progressing to persistent conditions.
Our physiotherapist will develop a program of exercises and stretches that you can practice regularly at home, as an integral part of your self-management strategy.
Our Osteopath Alison has her Masters in Pain Management.
The approaches that may be used to treat persistent pain under the care of a pain management osteopath might include better understanding why pain is persisting, what things you can do to help get back to doing the things that are important and how to gradually build movement back into day to day life.
Various strategies can be used including exercise approaches, relaxation, manual therapy and dry needling.
If your condition is persistent our physiotherapist or Osteopath can help to alleviate your symptoms and improve your mobility, posture and flexibility, enhancing your function and quality of life. Physiotherapy and Osteopathy also helps to relieve stress and can have a very positive impact on your mental health and mood.
