Specialist Physio – How It Can Help You

 

If you are reading this you have decided you need help with a pain condition or and injury and you are serious and protective about your health. Looking for and making the decision to get help is a big step for most people. A lot of people do not know what the difference is between what a physio does, how an osteopath differs and whether a chiropractor is the best option for them.

This page is going to give you answers to some of these types of questions you may have about what a physio does and how we can help you and whether specialist physiotherapy treatment is right for you.

Most people think that physios just teach people how to walk, may be do a bit of massage and give out a few exercises. This is far from what we do and I am about to show you why and how we help people struggling with various pain conditions and recovery from injury.

So you are now sitting there thinking what’s the difference between NHS and private physiotherapy treatment? All physios are the same…. Right?…..Wrong!

Unfortunately a lot of people have had a not so great experience with physio on the NHS and in even in some private clinics and end up tarring us all with the same brush, thinking that physio doesn’t work. The reason most people come away from the NHS physio system feeling this way is that the physios in the NHS just don’t have the time to give you the treatment you need and deserve. They are pressured with meeting departmental targets and are so snowed under with expanding waiting lists, which means you are likely to either get a telephone assessment or get a quick face to face assessment and then sent home to practice some basic exercises for about 6 weeks until they can fit you in their diary again. Experienced this? Know someone with this exact story?

Well at WDC physiotherapy we would like to distance ourselves from physio like this as our treatment is at the opposite end of the spectrum to this. We have the time to listen to you and what is concerning you and get to know you and your situation, meaning we can fully assess and diagnose what is going on. We have time to sit with you and fully explain what is causing your pain and how we can help ease it and get you back to the active life you long for.

We’ve been helping people like you for over 10 years now and our solutions are totally natural meaning we will help you side step the need for harmful medication, wearing supports and needing to see your GP, which at times can be frustrating as they don’t seem to know what to do for the best for you as they are not expertly trained in muscle and joint conditions like specialist physios are.

All of the physios here at WDC are expertly trained and specialise in helping people like you. We all use specialist hands on treatment techniques to bring a FAST END to suffering. Manual realignment and restoring normal movement is vital to successful recovery and this is something we do every day. It’s easy to do as well, as we have been doing this for years. We will use massage techniques to release and relax tight muscles and we will use gentle rocking techniques of your joints to ease them back in to the right place.

We can GUARANTEE that if you are age 40+ you will feel a BIG difference and your pain will drop quickly once we combine all of our BEST treatment techniques for you. Imagine how good life will be once you feel less pain and can move so much easier. It would make a big difference to your life and happiness right?

So back to one of the questions at the top of this page.

What is the difference between a physio, osteopath and chiropractor? Which one should you choose?

To be brief, a Physiotherapist looks for a cure. Our aim is to help you so much that you will not need to constantly keep coming back to us. A physio will work you out a plan of how to end your pain and suffering and then we will give you a plan to work on stopping the injury happening again.

We do very similar techniques to osteopaths and chiropractors, such as manipulation (clicking/cracking) of your spine, but we do added things such as massage and stretching and believe that the combination of that, plus exercises and posture correction will not only reduce your pain fast, but will also help you manage your pain in the coming years to avoid the need for repetitive visits to see us.

Osteopaths and chiropractors are both fantastically effective at reducing back pain and many of the good ones will even refer their patients to a physio for the things like massage and exercises that they sometimes don’t do.

Another question we get asked frequently is:

What will happen if I don’t choose to go and see a specialist physio?

This is simple – Your current predicament will continue, and you’ll run the risk of doing unforeseen and untold damage to the joints if they’re not moved back into the correct position, or muscles made stronger.

A failure to adhere to the right recovery programme post injury or pain condition could increase the risk of early onset arthritis in your joints. 9 days is an important mile stone – if pain and or stiffness is there at this point, it isn’t going to go away on its own.

 

Here’s who we can help

 

  • People aged 35-65+ and love to be active – Why? Because men, women and couples “on-the-go”have lots of good reasons to get better fast.
  • People still working (and want to remain that way…) Especially sales people, managers, civil servants, engineers, office workers, teachers, manual workers, nurses, health care workers, lawyers, even doctors…Why? Because they need to move easily and be able to sit comfortably for long periods in order to perform well in their jobs.
  • People aged 55+ and determined to remain active and independent – Why? Because many people see the impact that physical ill health has had on their parents.
  • Active and involved Grandparents – Why? Grandparents who play games with their grandchildren, like to walk with them to and from school, take them to places or babysit them, often tell us to enjoy their grandchildren is why they felt the need to come and try physio.
  • People who take their health very seriously – Why? A lot of the people who visit us are very “pro-active” about their health. They read up on foods that are good for you, vitamins, health topics, try to eat right, take vitamins other supplements such as codliver oil – and do their best to stay out of the GP’s surgery and the hospital. The very same motivations to stay out of the GP surgery are the reasons “why” come to see physios like us.

“Look Who Else Came For Specialist Physio at Wendy’s Clinic And Left Feeling More ACTIVE, HEALTHY And HAPPY…In Just A Few Short Weeks”!

I was genuinely impressed with my first visit yesterday. I felt you really listened to me and took a great deal of time and care to get a comprehensive history. Your treatment was thorough, relaxing and effective. I couldn’t have asked for more and look forward to seeing you next week.

My experience at WDC has been fantastic! I came for back pain and found the treatment very relaxing and hitting all the right spots. The next day I was able to go about feeling much better, less pain and discomfort throughout the day. I was instructed by Alastair to go through some rehab exercises which I found were good to do, I also learned lots of things to do with muscles and how they work to support you. Very educational, and well taught. Looking forward for more classes ;-).

Yesterday I had my last physio session with Jade after a Colles fracture and wrist plate surgery. I decided to get some private physio as treatment through the NHS was limited. I found Jade to be very knowledgeable and professional, these sessions have been immensely helpful in aiding my recovery by reducing swelling and regaining movement. Jade was always friendly and nice to chat with.
I would be happy to return to WDC Physiotherapy for any treatments should the need arise.
