What We Treat

Your back

80% of the population suffer a back problem at some time in their lives. At Meon Valley Physio we generally take a fairly gentle approach to backs using mobilisation/manipulation, and technology such as ultrasound. Most importantly we then work with you to restore the muscles around your pelvis (your core muscles) and so reduce the chances of a recurrence.

Your neck

This is another part of the spine vulnerable to injury. Many contact sports, high risk activities such as skiing and of course whiplash injuries from car crashes will leave your neck in need of attention. So will sitting badly at your desk and holding the telephone under your ear! Treatment is very much along the same lines as for your back.

Hips, knees, ankles and feet

Physiotherapists are well trained in the examination and treatment of these structures. We will reduce your pain and restore normal function much more rapidly than waiting for nature. If you have more serious problems we will quickly suggest an orthopaedic opinion, or podiatry.

Shoulders, elbows and wrists

Shoulders are particularly prone to problems, mainly because they are such mobile joints. The tendons holding them together (the rotator cuff mechanism) are liable to injury and impingement with other structures.

The conditions of tennis elbow and golfers elbow are well known and frequently seen in the practice. Injuries of the wrist and hand are common from falls, industrial, or sporting injuries. Again if you need further investigation, injections or surgery we will refer you to other medical practitioners.

Inflammatory joint diseases

The changes that occur in such diseases as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondilitis and polymyalgia rheumatica need a gentle approach from your physiotherapist. Our aim is to strengthen and restore function whilst working around your condition.

Strokes, multiple sclerosis and other neurological problems

Physiotherapists have specialist knowledge in dealing with these conditions. Rehabilitation after a stroke can sometimes be a long but often rewarding journey leading to significant improvement in function when well managed.

Respiratory conditions

Illnesses including asthma, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive airways disease, bronchiectasis and emphysema will benefit from a combination of hands on treatment and advice to improve the way you breathe.

Work related problems

Many people spend much of their working lives sitting at a desk in front of a computer, or perhaps on a production line carrying out repetitive operations. The correct arrangement of your workstation is vital to minimize your chances of developing work related injuries. The study of your workstation and the way you work is called ergonomics.

Hydrotherapy

We also have access to a private indoor pool where we can provide Hydrotherapy which can be beneficial in a variety of conditions.
