What is physiotherapy?
The aim of physiotherapy is to support the return to normal activities following illness, surgery or trauma. So whether your problem is a sprained ankle, back pain, neck pain, knee pain, whiplash or any other muscle or joint problem, Hazel Grove Physiotherapy will help you get better.
What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the technique of inserting fine needles into parts of the body. Our specially trained physiotherapists use acupuncture to decrease inflammation and pain to promote recovery by stimulating the body’s own pain relieving chemicals.
What do we treat?
Hazel Grove Physiotherapy is experienced in treating all muscle and joint conditions. Some of the common conditions include:
Almost everyone experiences back pain at some point in their lives. Lower back pain can be debilitating. It may include slipped disc, sciatica, pulled muscles and arthritis. Pain may be limited to the back itself or can spread to the buttock, leg, foot or groin. Pins and needles, numbness and burning may also be experienced.
Our physiotherapists are highly skilled and experienced in treating people with back pain. Having assessed your condition we will other you specific treatment tailored to your condition. This may include manual therapy and acupuncture. Exercise and advice will also be offered to prevent it reoccurring.
Neck pain is extremely common and can be very painful. Typical causes include sitting at a desk for long periods, using a telephone and long distance driving. Our physiotherapists will quickly diagnose your problem and progress with specific treatments to help with your pain and offer advice to help it happening again in the future.
Hazel Grove Physiotherapy specialises in treating people suffering a whiplash injury. Whiplash injuries are caused by a sudden backwards and forward movement of the neck, typically the result of a road traffic accident.
Symptoms include pain and stiffness in the back of the neck and head, pain in the shoulder and headaches. Treatment may include manual therapy, acupuncture, exercise and advice. The treatment plan will be specifically tailored to the individual and can depend on the time since the accident.
Frozen Shoulder (adhesive capsulitis) is a painful condition which affects the ability to move the shoulder. The condition is particularly common in people aged between 40 and 60.
Treatments at Hazel Grove Physiotherapy include manual techniques, exercise, ultrasound or acupuncture for pain relief.
