Treatments include massage, dry needling, acupuncture, stretching & strengthening exercises, Pilates
Physiotherapy at St Margarets Foot Clinic opened its doors in November 2017 (taking over from St Margarets Physiotherapy), and continues to provide highly skilled physiotherapists, with diverse experiences in their chosen fields, who have been carefully selected to help patients back to health.
What our practitioners offer:
PHYSIOTHERAPY: A holistic approach to restoring movement and function when your body has been affected by injury, illness or disability. Your appointment is 60 minutes long and will include an assessment of your presenting complaint and a tailored treatment plan. Follow-up appointments can be booked if needed.
SPORTS REHABILITATION: A multi-disciplinary approach to treating patients who have suffered injuries whilst playing sports.
ACUPUNCTURE: Used to reduce stress and pain as part of your physiotherapy treatment. There are very few known side-effects of acupuncture and it is an effective combination treatment.
DRY NEEDLING: also known as Myofascial trigger point dry needling. Used in the treatment of pain and movement impairments. The technique uses dry needles, which are inserted through the skin into areas of the muscle. It is not associated with traditional Chinese medicine, but part of modern Western medicine principles and supported by research.
MASSAGE: Soft tissue massage improves blood and lymph circulation and relaxes muscle tissue. Sports massage gets deep into the tissue, helping to reduce painful contractions and spasms. Massages are carried out by our qualified physiotherapists.
IMPORTANT NOTE: if you need a massage for a strain/sprain/injury/or if you're not sure, please book a Physiotherapy new patient appointment so that the physiotherapist is able to assess and direct the massage correctly and effectively to the problem area. Please me warned that in-depth assessments are not carried out if you book a massage appointment.
PILATES: Regular Pilates classes can help to relieve stress and tension, alleviate back pain, and maintain a pain-free lifestyle. Your physiotherapist can advise whether taking up Pilates would benefit your journey back to health. If you have never done Pilates before, why not book a 30 minute Pre-Pilates assessment. The instructor can assess your level of fitness and talk you through the basics of Pilates so you can gain more from your classes.
