COMMON CONDITIONS TREATED IN PHYSIOTHERAPY
A Wry Neck is an acute locking of the joints in the cervical spine. Most commonly affected is the C1/2 joints. This condition often occurs after sleeping with the head at an awkward angle, such as on the couch or propped upright. It is acutely painful and often results in not being able to move the neck.
Your physiotherapist will employ gentle joint mobilisation techniques in addition to targeted massage therapy. You will often see a marked improvement after your first session. It usually only requires 2-3 sessions to completely solve this issue.
It is estimated that over 50% of the population has experienced a headache within the last 12 months. A common physiotherapy complaint is a condition called a cervicogenic headache. This refers to a headache that is produced by a dysfunction within the joints in the cervical spine.
Typically, these headaches often involve the upper cervical spine and are experienced on one side of the head towards the temples and eyes. There is also evidence that these headaches can escalate and become migrainous if not treated.
Your physiotherapist will employ gentle joint mobilisation and massage techniques to restore normal movement through your cervical spine. They are often able to reduce your headache symptoms substantially within one session.
Neck pain and back pain are the most common complaints that are referred for physiotherapy treatment, with many people wrongly believing these aches and pains are a part of life.
Your physiotherapist can identify the many factors that contribute to neck and back pain, including factors such as muscle tightness, weakness, postural components and even stress and anxiety levels.
Whilst short term complaints can resolve relatively quickly with simple manual therapy, longer term injuries often require an element of exercise rehabilitation to restore normal movement.
Have you had arthroscopic knee surgery, or a knee ‘clean out?’. Your physiotherapist can guide you through appropriate exercise rehabilitation to get you back to the activities that you love without risk of further injury to your knee.
A common cause of pain around the kneecap is a condition called ‘Patellofemoral Knee Pain Syndrome’ or ‘Runner’s Knee’.
Typically, those who are suffering with this condition will experience a diffuse pain around their knee cap that is aggravated by activities including walking, running, ascending and descending stairs and squatting.
Your knee receives muscular attachments from many muscles. Your physiotherapist can comprehensively assess and diagnose areas of tightness and weakness and formulate a plan to restore pain free movement in your knee. This plan will often incorporate manual release techniques such as massage and dry needling, in addition to exercise rehabilitation.
Have you recently sustained a broken bone or severe ligament injury?
Physiotherapy is highly important for restoring normal joint range of movement following a period of immobilisation. Take for example, a simple rolled or broken ankle which has been immobilised for 6 weeks in a moon boot. Your physiotherapist will assist you in restoring your normal movement back in your ankle, and to regain your lost strength to prevent any future lower limb injuries.
