They participate in frequent peer reviews and training courses optimising the effectiveness of their treatment approach.
Our JR Healthcare Physiotherapists work with all individuals, specific groups as well as holding individual specialisms including:
Your physiotherapist will ask you the history of your injury or condition followed by a thorough physical examination to gain an understanding of the symptoms and best course of treatment. Treatment is a combination of manual therapy & exercise therapy specific to your condition to reduce pain, restore optimal movement and prevent future injury.
Manual therapy performed by your physiotherapist includes joint mobilisation and manipulation, massage, and stretching. Exercise Therapy refers to specific stretched, muscle strengthening or control exercises as prescribed by your physiotherapist which you perform at home. Exercise therapy compliments manual therapy to maintain gains and to help you reach your goals.
