Physiotherapy

null

The heart of the physiotherapy profession is understanding how and why movement and function take place. Physiotherapy is anchored in movement sciences and aims to enhance or restore function of multiple body systems.

EDHINI Physiotherapists work within a wide variety of health settings to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different ‘systems’ of the body. In particular we treat neuromuscular (brain and nervous system), musculoskeletal (soft tissues, joints and bones), cardiovascular and respiratory systems (heart and lungs and associated physiology).

Edhini Physiotherapy is a team of specialist physiotherapists. All of the physiotherapists are recruited on the basis of their diagnostic, treatment, and personal qualities. All our physiotherapists are either specialists in musculoskeletal problems (muscles and joint problems including sport injuries), neurological problems (conditions affecting the brain or spinal cord) paediatrics (children’s physiotherapy and development).

Our Services

MSK Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is focused on your biomechanical and structural rehabilitation. With targeted goals to maximise your functional movement so you can return to normal daily activities. This type of therapy is most commonly used to address accidental injuries, sports injuries and resolving physical impairment due to lifestyle and ageing.

Neuro Physiotherapy

Neurological Physiotherapy specialises in addressing the physical conditions that arise as a result of impairment in function of either the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves. The common issues addressed in this type of therapy are mobility problems, muscle strength, range of movement and balance. All of which impact the clients ability to resume normal activities of daily living, affecting their subsequent quality of life.

Cardiorespiratory physiotherapy

Cardiorespiratory physiotherapy is an area of physiotherapy that specialises in the prevention, rehabilitation, and compensation of clients with diseases and injuries in the heart and lungs. These conditions may manifest themselves as shortness of breath, persistent cough, increased work of breathing or the reduced ability to exercise.

Paediatric Physiotherapy

Paediatric Physiotherapy is focused on treating the full range of conditions that can affect a child’s functional movement, weather the cause is physiological or neurological in origin. Special consideration has to be given to still developing bodies in the way they are assessed and treated.

Sports Massage

Massage is a manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscles and soft tissues in the body. At Edhini Physio we offer a wide range of different massage types that uses various techniques to achieve our patient goals. Our massage treatments at Edhini Physio can provide a range of health benefits, increase sporting performance and aid relaxation.

Geriatric physiotherapy

Geriatric Physiotherapy encompasses an extensive range of issues concerning people as they age from a normal adult to a senior, usually focused on the health concerns of an older adult. There are many conditions that affect many people as they grow older that include but are not limited to the following: Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, balance disorders, cancer, osteoporosis, hip and joint replacement, and incontinence to name a few.

Home care

Home-based physiotherapy services reduce health care costs by keeping people. independent in their homes, preventing falls and providing a safe environment within. the home.

Manual Therapy

Manual therapy is the ‘hands-on’ treatment used in the management of disorders affecting the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. We at Edhini Physiotherapy clinic have a very hands-on manual therapy approach to treatment.

Manual therapy used at Edhini Physiotherapy Clinic includes:

  • Passive mobilisations and manipulation of spinal and peripheral joints
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Passive stretching of contractile tissues
  • Manual muscle relaxation techniques
  • Mobilisations of the nervous system

The mobilisation treatment may vary from very gentle small amplitude movements, barely perceived by you if the treatment you require is for pain, to large amplitude, through range, or strong, small amplitude, end of range techniques which are aimed at improving your movement.

Research and experience shows that early treatment of your injury with gentle movement in the direction of injury helps with the organisation and alignment of the fibres in the repair process, thereby reducing the production of unwanted adhesions and encouraging an earlier return to normal functions.

In longer term conditions, for example arthritis, we would try and use larger mobilisations to help affect fluid dynamics in the tissue – as the viability, health and repair of tissues are highly dependent on their vascular and lymphatic supply.

Soft Tissue Techniques

At Edhini Physiotherapy Clinic we use these techniques to mobilise tissue. In particular, we use passive stretching of contractile tissues, myofascial release and massage.

All of the above techniques help with the following:

  • In acute injuries they assist healing which helps prevent chronicity
  • Assists older injuries to heal by breaking down adhesions and therefore restoring mobility
  • Reduces muscle spasm leading to restoration of normal movement
  • Helps prevent muscle injuries and reduces build-ups form frequent training

Deep tissue massage also helps relieve tension and prepares the area for further manual therapy techniques, which we find very useful, especially in the neck and shoulders.

In more painful conditions, very tender areas can develop what is known as trigger points, which can lead to muscle contraction. Deep tissue techniques can concentrate on these areas and restore normal tissue extensibility and blood supply.

Electrotherapy

Electrotherapy is used by physiotherapists to provide pain relief, promote healing for problems of the soft tissue or stimulate the muscles fibres to activate. The main methods of electrotherapy used at the Edhini Physiotherapy Clinic to complement our manual approach and exercise prescription are as follows

Neuromuscular electric stimulation

Muscle Stimulation is an artificial way of activating a muscle. If you are recovering from an injury or suffer from arthritis your muscles can start to atrophy (waste away). The NMES can be the ideal tool to start your road to recovery as it can stimulate the muscles to work and gain strength without causing pain to your injury or arthritis. It mimics the impulses sent from the brain and the muscle reacts accordingly.

Our trained staff can manipulate the frequency of the impulses to provide these benefits:

  • Enhancing muscle recruitment
  • Increased muscle volume and strength
  • Pain relief
  • Reduce swelling

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)

This is a very safe method of electrotherapy which we use in the clinic. It provides pain relief by blocking nerve signals carrying pain messages to the brain. TENS also stimulates the production of endorphins – our natural pain relieving hormones.

Ultrasound

With an ultrasound machine high frequency sound waves are used to treat injuries to muscles, tendons and soft tissues. The sound waves pass through the skin causing the tissues in the affected area to vibrate.This can helps to

  • Improve blood flow to the injured site
  • Increase the breakdown of scar tissue
  • Decrease pain
  • Encourage the healing process.

Specific Conditions

Some of the more specific conditions that we have developed specialist experience in over the years are the following:

null

RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) and work-related problems

Work-related problems and soft-tissue overuse issues, such as upper limb tendonitis, can cause considerable stress and anxiety and are often seen as quite difficult to treat and manage effectively. We have been involved with individuals with these types of problems over a long period of time and can offer help in the following ways:

  • Provision of assessment and treatment programmes
  • Advice on management of symptoms at home and/or at work to optimise recovery
  • Liaise with Occupational Health departments and provide guidelines and advice on back-to-work programmes and workplace adaptations.
  • Provide work-station assessments and advice where appropriate
  • Liaise with other Specialists to provide a multidisciplinary programme of care

null

Hypermobility conditions

Many clients that we see are actually slightly more flexible in their joints and soft tissue than the norm and this can be a contributory factor to the symptoms that they present with. Some clients are very aware of this but many are not and it can often be the missing piece of the puzzle to explain a pattern of slightly unusual and/or recurrent symptoms.

Depending on the levels of flexibility, treatment programmes may have to be adapted or in some cases completely changed to be appropriate for clients with this condition.

We do look out for hypermobility conditions when assessing new clients and can advise and treat them accordingly.

null

Pregnancy-related spinal and pelvic pain

Back pain is commonly experienced by women during pregnancy and can be dismissed as trivial or inevitable. It can however have a major impact on women’s lives during and beyond the childbearing year. Our physiotherapists have considerable experience in assessing and treating this condition and can provide treatment and help with symptoms and advise on management techniques to get you through this sometimes difficult time.

Other types of spinal pain and mechanical symptoms can also surface during this time due to changes in body size, weight and posture and/or changes in activity and exercise habits.

Treatment very much depends on the findings of the assessment but can include the following:

  • vertebral joint mobilisation (a more gentle form of manipulation)
  • soft tissue massage (see more on Massage Therapy)
  • trigger point therapy
  • acupuncture or dry needling (the western medicine version of chinese acupuncture) – some of our physiotherapists have specialist qualifications in using acupuncture in pregnancy
  • neural gliding techniques
  • taping techniques to protect joints, correct posture or give feedback
  • posture correction
  • advice on ways to change movements and habits to reduce or eliminate the pain such as during work or home activities
  • exercise programmes to mobilise the spine.
  • provision of pelvic braces and other supports where necessary and advice on their use./li>
