What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disability.

It involves promoting health and wellbeing and encouraging people to help themselves achieve and maintain their own health and fitness.

You can self-refer to see a physiotherapist, (you don’t have to ask your GP or other health professional to recommend you). This is becoming more common nowadays in certain areas of Scotland as a result of changes in modern health care. Physiotherapists work autonomously, in that they are specially trained to assess and treat patients using systematic clinical reasoning and a problem-solving approach to patient care. Every patient has control over their treatment and should participate fully in setting goals for their own rehabilitation.

What can Physiotherapy help with?

There are literally hundreds of conditions that physiotherapists can help treat. Some of the most common are musculoskeletal conditions, such as sports injuries, back pain or repetitive strain injuries.

If you are in any doubt as to whether a physiotherapist can help with your condition, please contact us on 0141 237 2721 and we will be glad to answer your questions.

Physiotherapy doesn’t only treat injuries or conditions you already suffer from. If you are thinking of taking up a new sport or returning to an old sport; if you are worried about an old injury; or if you worry you wont be able to do it; then we can also help to prevent you being stopped in your tracks by injury.

Take a look at our prehabilitation service


What Sort of treatment can I expect?

Your service will be tailored to your individual needs. We will give you advice on how to manage pain and how to prevent your symptoms from worsening. Depending on the injury we may use manual therapy (‘hands-on’ techniques) and provide you with an exercise programme based on your abilities and condition.

Research strongly supports physical activity as a treatment method. We may also apply heat or cold to the area, use relaxation techniques or electrotherapy (this is not painful although it may sound it!).

Once your symptoms have improved, we will advise you on the most effective ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle where you keep control of your condition and reduce recurrences of the problem. Find out more about the appointments here…


What is prehabliltation?

Prehabilitation is used to prevent an injury occurring and is completed in two stages.

Initially a full body assessment is completed. A thorough history of previous medical conditions and injuries is completed and then each joint is checked to determine if there are any weaknesses within any of the structures. If any symptoms are found then treatment can begin.

This is usually a process of strengthening and lengthening any structures that may be hindering normal movement and an exercise program will be created to meet your specific requirements as well as advice on how to avoid injuries specific to the sport and to your own physical condition.

If you would like to stay active and injury free, return to a sport or activity you used to do in your previous days or have been inspired to take up a new sport by the Olympics and Commonwealth Games then please contact us to see how we can help you!
