Physiotherapy Treatments Overview
Here at West Midlands Hospital, we are proud to be able to offer a comprehensive range of Physiotherapy services and treatments. Details of which are as follows:
A non-surgical treatment for common women’s health problems allows for women to potentially resolve issues which may have plagued them for many years but were too embarrassed to address directly. Our Women’s Health Service allows for a comfortable environment in which to discuss these issues and through the use of pelvic floor exercises, as well as other modalities, rehabilitate the problem.
Whether on a one to one basis or in a class setting, Pilates provides a unique modality of exercise to strengthen the core muscles and improve your postural awareness. Ideal for anyone who suffers from lower back pain, Pilates can also be applicable for other patients especially as a route back into exercise following an injury or surgery.
The inability to return to sport following an injury can be the most frustrating thing for an athlete. The sports injury clinic offers a multidisciplinary team of medical experts who can screen, diagnose and rehabilitate any injury. With direct access to consultant orthopaedic surgeons and the full array of physiotherapy treatment modalities you will be back to sport and performing better than ever.
Chronic heel pain, Achilles problems, shoulder pain and tennis elbow can be some of the most stubborn ailments to treat. Shockwave therapy provides a conservative option to allow the natural healing process to take full effect through the use of a radial shockwave as recommended in the NICE guidelines.
Massage can be a useful tool to alleviate muscular stress and tension with sports-specific massage particularly beneficial to facilitate the return to sport or activity post-injury. All of our physiotherapy staff are skilled in this area and will also complete an individualised assessment and treatment program to ensure the full resolution of symptoms.
Exercise in water can benefit any patient. Hydrotherapy can help reduce muscle tension and spasm, ease joint movement and allow increased levels of exercise than would otherwise be possible. The hydrotherapy service is run from an offsite purpose built pool.
Chronic or acute pain affecting quality of life can be a stumbling block in the road to recovery. Acupuncture provides an alternative treatment to address the pain symptoms directly. Our physiotherapists are skilled in the use of acupuncture for wide-ranging conditions combining a traditional Chinese medicine treatment with a Western approach.
Long term sufferers of vertigo will know the impact it can have on quality of life. Our therapists are skilled in the specific rehab required following vestibular problems in order to return to normal activities of daily living.
