Physiotherapy can be defined as the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise. At CBR Clinics we define Physiotherapy as ‘the treatment of injuries and issues involving the neuromusculoskeletal system’.
To better understand what the neuromusculoskeletal system is, it’s best to look at each of its elements:
Neuro – Nerves or the Nervous System
Musculo – Muscles and Tendons
Skeletal – Bones, Cartilage, Ligaments and Joints
If a person suffers damage to any of the above, then it’s likely to result in pain for the individual in question. Physiotherapy assists in the alleviation of pain and correction of long-standing problems regarding the neuromusculoskeletal system.
To treat any issues correctly, our physio’s role is to examine and understand any issue or pain that is affecting a patient through running diagnostic tests; but most importantly, listening to you, the patient. Once any problems have been established, your dedicated physio will structure the best form of treatment; be it using new, modern techniques such as shockwave therapy, or more traditional, manual therapy techniques such as massage.
Our physiotherapy techniques rehabilitate muscles, joints and any other soft tissue conditions caused by injury, illness or disability.
We offer outstanding Physiotherapy across our specialist clinics in Waterloo, Southwark (SE1), and Canary Wharf, South Quay (E14). Our primary focus is to alleviate pain and discomfort in the body.
Our highly trained, experienced physio’s use a combination of traditional and innovative myofascial release techniques, such as Shockwave Therapy, Medical Acupuncture and EMMETT Technique, alongside exercise programmes to provide you with the best possible treatment.
