Restoration of normal movement and function
Comprehensive physiotherapy assessment including isokinetic testing and video gait analysis when appropriate.
At activ8rehab we take a holistic approach to human movement and function. Our aim is not only to accurately diagnose and treat your condition but also to investigate the underlying causes. This may involve the use of video gait analysis, isokinetic muscle performance testing and real-time ultrasound scanning.
Physiotherapy treatment can include mobilisation and manipulation of joints, soft tissue techniques, electrotherapy, acupuncture, taping, and specific exercise regimes. The aim of treatment is to reduce pain, increase range of movement and gain strength, co-ordination and stability.
All our patients are provided with an exercise program, tailored to their needs (sports specific if required), which is progressed over time to include core stability and/or strengthening exercises to prevent recurrence.
Often isokinetic muscle testing is used to accurately evaluate the rehabilitation progress assisting safe progression back to activity / sport.
It is essential that the initial consultation is for an hour to allow all of the above testing where necessary to be performed, with a diagnosis and a treatment strategy and initial exercise programmes to be issued. For this initial consultation any previous investigations i.e. X-rays, MRI or CT scans, DVD ‘s or pictures of surgery are required if available.
