The Oxford Dictionary describes Physiotherapy as “the treatment of disease, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery”. In a nutshell Physiotherapists are experts in analysing and optimising how the body moves and feels.

When you see one of our Physiotherapists, a detailed assessment will be performed on your first visit to help accurately diagnose the problem. Treatments will then be carefully selected to ensure the most effective treatment of your condition. When selecting treatment your Physiotherapist takes many factors into consideration, including your preferences and what your specific needs are. Examples of the types of treatment Physiotherapists deliver are:

  • Exercise rehabilitation
  • Joint mobilisations and manipulations
  • Soft Tissue Techniques
  • Core stability exercises
  • Postural correction and Ergonomic analysis
  • Taping and strapping
  • Advice and education
  • Electrotherapy
  • Aquatic therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Clinical Pilates

All of our Physiotherapists at Pure Physio have at least 5 years clinical experience and work to specialist level.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a form of manual bodywork originally geared toward people who participate in sports activities. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition by helping athletes recover from workouts and injuries.

It involves systematic deep tissue massage and mobilisation, with stretching and joint mobilising techniques. It focuses on muscles relevant to an exercise regime or sport.

Even if you do not participate in sport it can help to ease general muscle tension, with many people preferring the depth of sports massage over other massage techniques.

The perceived benefits of sports massage include:

  • Improved recovery from sports activity.
  • Reduced muscle soreness.
  • Improved feelings of wellbeing and mood.
  • Reduced levels of anxiety

Sports Massage at Pure Physio is delivered by our Specialist Physiotherapists. With our medical knowledge, we provide effective sports massage with the reassurance you are in safe hands.

Sports physiotherapy

Sports Physiotherapy is a specialised branch of physiotherapy which deals with injuries and issues related to sports people.

Sports physiotherapists have completed advanced training to Masters level and are experts in:

  • Promoting safe physical activity participation
  • Advising how to adapt training programmes to reduce the risk of injury.
  • Advising how to adapt your training programme whilst recovering from injury.
  • Delivering high level rehabilitation to help recovery from injury and enhance sports performance.
