Acute soft Tissue Injuries
In situations of acute soft tissue injuries the best initial advice you may have heard of is "RICE" or R.I.C.E which stands for Rest Ice Compression and Elevation. If you want to reduce swelling, elevation needs to be higher than your heart. Take care applying ice as it is possible to get an ice burn - always put a cloth between the gel pack or frozen peas and your skin and do a maximum of 10 minutes at a time. Never use a food or wine cooler as they can be too cold.
Lumbago or lower back pain
Lower Back Pain affects many people of all ages, during work whether manual or sedentary, sport such as golf, hobbies such as gardening, and everyday life and chores such as DIY. Chartered and State registered physiotherapists such as Shirley-Ann deal with this sort of thing every day in their clinical practice, both as treatment and prevention of back pain.
Education about movement, exercises, pain management, lifting and handling and how to look after your back can be an excellent foundation and this kind of support is available at Lightwater Physiotherapy, near Bagshot, close to the M3 motorway Junction 3.
Neck, shoulder, and limb pain
Work related pain due to poor ergonomics, repetative movements and bad posture are on the increase and Shirley-Ann Walters is used to treating these problems with physiotherapy manual techniques, advice, exercises and massage depending on what is needed.
Other kinds of neck pain may be a result of whiplash injuries, trapped nerves, stress and tension, and other more acute problems. If you have had X-rays or scans, bring any information you have with you to your first physiotherapy treatment session.
OptiNeck Balance Wedge® is a device that helps you to maintain upper body posture and fitness as a sound foundation to the rest of the arm.
Elderly Rehabilitation Packages
The nature of elderly care varies widely, but in many instances there is plenty of scope for assessment and rehabilitation such as after a fall or illness or operation, or to re-evaluate walking aids and mobility circumstances and needs to facilitate independence for as long as possible and based on the persons own needs and wishes, along with supporting friends and family there to help them.
Talking though a complex set of needs via an assessment with Chartered and State registered physiotherapist Shirley-Ann Walters can so often help to clarify the picture and priorities and break things down into manageable goals and where to focus limited energy. This can occur in clinic where possible, and subject to space available in the diary home visits at additional cost. Please ask for details.
