Musculoskeletal physiotherapy is a specialised therapy treatment for patients who have musculoskeletal symptoms or are undergoing treatment for a musculoskeletal disorder. When compared to general physiotherapy, musculoskeletal physiotherapy takes a more hands-on approach. A combination of mobilisation, manipulation, low-level laser therapy, an exercise programme, return to fitness planning, injury prevention advice, and functional rehabilitation may be used in the treatment. Musculoskeletal physiotherapy seeks to help patients recover from their condition as quickly as possible through regular treatment sessions, as well as to develop coping strategies to aid the patient throughout their recovery, so that there are no other secondary issues. Musculoskeletal physiotherapy treats disorders that affect how you move, specifically how your muscles and joints work together. An injury that makes it painful or difficult to move your feet, ankles, legs, hands, arms, shoulders, or backs and necks can have a significant impact on your life.
The treatment at Propel Physiotherapy is tailored to the individual based on their initial assessment. Following treatment, exercise plans and advice are routinely given, and the number of treatments will vary depending on the patient’s recovery progress. Their musculoskeletal physiotherapists are experts in assessing and treating musculoskeletal disorders such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Propel Physiotherapy has a team of musculoskeletal physiotherapists who have received advanced training in treatments and techniques specific to musculoskeletal disorders. The therapist will concentrate on the main structures of the body, such as bone, muscle, ligaments, and tendons, as well as the connected systems of the heart, circulation, and lungs. Based on the initial assessment, treatment is tailored to the individual. Exercise plans and advice are routinely provided, and the number of treatments required is determined by the level of improvement.
Sports injuries and daily wear-and-tear are incomparable when it comes to physiotherapy. Sport places greater demands on the body than everyday activities such as walking. This puts more strain on the joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons, making them more vulnerable to injury. Sports injuries differ from everyday musculoskeletal injuries in that they place an increased demand and stress on the body’s muscles, joints, ligaments, and bones due to the high level of training and play performance, and in some situations, after an assessment, it can be decided that sports physiotherapy is required instead. The physiotherapists have sport-specific experience and knowledge working with acute, chronic, and overuse sport-related injuries, employing the most up-to-date evidence-based practise, effective ‘hands-on’ treatment techniques, and rehabilitation protocols to aid recovery, manage symptoms, and help prevent future injury, allowing you to return to activity.
