These findings will guide our treatment choices to help you manage your condition. 

Manipulative Therapy - Swansea

MANUAL & MANIPULATIVE TECHNIQUES

Manual therapy, or manipulative therapy, is a physical treatment, which involves the application of force to joints, muscles and neural tissues to facilitate improved function. This may be achieved by increasing the range of motion of joints, reduce swelling, improve circulation and help desensitise painful structures.

 

Spinal manipulation is an advanced treatment technique, which uses measured movements of varying speed and force to adjust joints, which are often associated with 'popping' or release sensations. This can help loosen tight tissues around a joint, reduce pain in a joint and surrounding tissue, and help with movement.

EXERCISE THERAPY

Exercise therapy involves movement prescribed to correct impairments and imbalances of the Musculoskeletal system to optimise function. This includes strength and resistance training, stretching, and neuromuscular proprioceptive training. Current evidence heavily supports exercise prescription to manage many Musculoskeletal conditions.

 

An exercises programme will be prescribed following all initial consultations to help self-manage you condition between follow up consultations. Exercise programmes will then be progressed or regressed accordingly, in line with how symptoms present during re-assessment.

Physical Therapy Session
NMES Therapy Services - Swansea

NMES

Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) applies electrical currents over muscles and nerves, which produces muscle contraction.

It is an excellent treatment modality to complement exercise therapy, which accelerates muscle function following surgery and complex injury to prevent muscle wasting and improve motor control.

KINESIOLOGY TAPING TECHNIQUES

Kinesiology taping is a therapeutic taping technique which is commonly used as an adjunct to other treatments and is rarely used in isolation. It has shown to alleviate pain and facilitate lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin.

 

Flexible kinesiology taping can facilitate normal movement, and provide feedback to joint position sense. Rigid taping techniques are usually used in a sporting setting to stabilise a joint or to support an injury.

Back Massage

MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. This aims to reduce pain by relieving muscle tension and increasing muscle length, which can improve joint range of movement and Musculoskeletal function.

 

At PhysioFirst Swansea we offer a range of Massage Therapy techniques.  These include Deep Tissue Massage, Active Release Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Sports Massage and Myofascial Release Therapy.
