Hands-on mobilisation and manipulation techniques of joints can ease pain by reducing swelling and inflammation, while also regaining joint mobility and changing muscle function. These techniques can be effective on all joints, including the spine.

Several electrotherapy techniques are available: therapeutic ultrasound is used to improve tissue healing.  The ultrasound head is used directly on the skin with a gel to improve contact; interferential therapy can provide drug-free pain relief for a variety of musculo-skeletal problems; TENS machines are small, portable devices providing pain relief for acute or chronic pain.  This can be especially useful for self-management.

Using fine needles, this is an ancient Chinese technique that has increasingly been backed up by scientific research.  There is a growing evidence base to support its use for a variety of conditions.  Acupuncture’s intended benefits are reduction in pain, alleviation of muscle spasm and tension, facilitation of the healing process and promotion of general well-being.

Soft tissue techniques, such as massage and myofascial release, target the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.  Massage promotes increased blood flow and relaxes muscles, which stimulates healing and alleviates painful symptoms.

Taping can be used to promote recovery or relieve pain and swelling, depending on the technique used.  The tape is water resistant and can be worn for up to 5 days.  It can be particularly helpful when working with athletes, like swimmers, runners, and cyclists.

A programme of exercises can be specifically tailored for you. Home-based therapeutic exercise is often an effective complement to treatment in clinic, whether before or after surgery, or for ongoing problems.

We have a range of equipment (such as wobble boards, wobble cushions and gym balls) that make the rehabilitation process more dynamic – and even fun!

Patient Information Leaflets


Julie is an excellent Physiotherapist and always explains the problem and the best treatment plan.

Due to ongoing health issues, I have seen her on and off over a period of time and her kindness and reassuring manner have always given me a positive mindset with which to deal with back pain episodes.

Julie was very professional and everything was explained to me, which helped with my recovery.  Thank you

“Julie listened to our request for exercises to do at home.  She explained what was happening clearly, how exercises would help and carefully how to do the exercises.  Thank you.”

“I would not hesitate to recommend Julie or return myself if it was necessary.  Julie has an excellent reassuring manner and is very professional.  My treatment was very successful.  Thank you.”
