I have worked as a physiotherapist in musculoskeletal practice for 37 years and I have treated all manner of problems. I continue to engage in continuing education to stay up to date and further develop my skills.
Treatment is based on careful examination to identify the cause of problems. Sometimes there is a mechanical/strength imbalance that needs correction, sometimes wear and tear is the main issue. Home and work activities can be the cause. Sitting postures and manual handling skills are considered.
My aim is to reduce pain and improve freedom of movement. Treatment is primarily based on manual therapy, with occasional use of cold laser to enhance recovery. I look carefully at pelvic alignment and posture. Home exercises for self-treatment are often required.
