These are common complaints our patients present with in our clinic. Fortunately, our Physio Team have years of experience of palpating or “feeling” muscles, joints and ligaments and knowing whether they are tight, painful or in a state of inflammation. Hands on therapy is one of the best ways a Physio can help decrease and eliminate your pain and stiffness. We have found it an excellent way
to calm down the nervous system which can be over stimulated when in pain. There is nothing like the benefits and results from hands on therapy from your Physio and we have 100’s of patients that can attest to this.
When you attend your Physiotherapy session the Physio will massage your muscles and press on or “mobilise” your joints. We
have found this combination of treatment helpful in reducing pain, stiffness and tightness. This then allows you to follow your Physios instructions in regards to getting moving or carrying out specific movement exercises or stretches.
The aim of these techniques is to relax tense muscles, restore normal movement and reduce or eliminate pain. The selection of techniques used depends on the findings of a thorough assessment. We use hands on therapy successfully on osteoarthritis, stiff necks, tense muscles, stiff low backs and hips. We will also get to the root cause of why you are stiff or tight and address these issues.
