Some of the conditions we can provide relief and treatment for include:
- Spinal pain (back and neck and thoracic)
- Core stability training
- Joint injuries (arms and legs)
- Soft tissue injuries (ligaments, tendons, nerves, connective tissue)
- Sports injuries
- Pre/post op rehabilitation (e.g. Arthroscopy of knee, Rotator cuff repair, ACL recon, TKR)
- Nerve pain
- Chronic pain and weakness (e.g. OA)
- Biomechanical/postural problems and imbalances
- Ergonomic injuries and problems.
To treat these conditions we use a combination of:
- Soft tissue techniques (myofascial release, massage)
- Mobilisation and manipulation
- Rehabilitation exercises/programmes (tailor made to facilitate independence, recovery and return to sport/work)
- Advice on progression of activity and prevention of recurrence of injury
At your appointment our physiotherapists will assess and establish your specific injuries or symptoms to build an accurate diagnosis. We then offer a completely personalised treatment plan, specific to your needs and aim to get you returned to your usual self in a timescale that will be made clear in the aims and objectives for treatment that our physiotherapists will set with you.
Each treatment session will reassess the symptoms and aim for progress and should constantly change as your symptoms resolve.
Once the symptoms start to resolve and function is returning, we offer advice on minimising the risk of recurrence of symptoms, e.g. advice on work postures, sporting postures and any biomechanical adjustments to maintain pain free function.
If the symptoms do not respond to appropriate physio/rehab and we feel there may be a need for further input, we can recommend and facilitate efficient onward referrals for further investigations e.g. MRI, X-rays and to see consultants and physicians for diagnosis and possible surgery or treatment, thus offering a seamless service.
Kingsbridge Private Hospital Sligo has a physiotherapy service available to patients as an inpatient or an outpatient.
