WHAT WE TREAT
Pain and Injury
There is no need to suffer pain when treatment can often help so effectively. All our Physiotherapists are very experienced in dealing with all manner of injury and sources of pain. Treatment is comprehensive and actively based on the latest research
As well as easing the pain we aim to look at why the injury occurred in the first place – was it just an unavoidable accident, or were there some weaknesses that have led to the injury occurring? Throughout the whole process you will be given advice about what to do, how much to do and how best to help the problem resolve.
Sports Injury management is one of our specialist areas. Clinical lead Howard Turner has worked with elite athletes from many disciplines, lectures in Sports Medicine, has consulted for national clubs and sporting bodies and works as a Consultant Physiotherapist for the English Institute of Sport, looking after the North West’s Olympic hopefuls. At Hale Physio you can have the same level of care.
Working alongside our Physios we have an experienced Sports Massage practitioner and run regular sports medicine clinics with English Institute of Sport and Sale Sharks Medic Dr David Jones.
Remember that surgery is often only the beginning of sorting out injuries and you should make sure that you are rehabilitated properly before and after having any operation.
Post operative rehabilitation is important because whilst surgery may repair the damaged tissue at the heart of the problem it may not correct the way in which your body has adapted to the problem. Post-op rehabilitation and treatment deals with the swelling and scarring left over from surgery, the associated problems that developed as a result of your injury and helps ensure the restoration of normal function. We will, of course, do this in constant communication with your Specialist.
