Recently Diagnosed with a form of arthritis ? e.g. Rheumatoid Arthritis? Osteoarthritis? Psoriatic Arthritis? Anklylosing Spondylitis? We help patients manage these conditions through appropriate advice and treatment according to the diagnosis and symptoms.
Repetitive strain injuries.
These can be caused by working for long periods of time in sustained postures that put stresses on particular areas in the body e.g. musicians/carpenters/office workers etc. As well as treating the affected area we indentify any external factors that may be contributing to this through ergonomic evaluation and advise correct postures to alleviate stress on the affected structure.
This maybe after any form of injury e.g. post fracture/ligament repair/joint replacement/sports injury etc.,
These can occur because of pressure from soft tissue structures e.g. joint/disc/muscle etc.,
This can be from general overuse/overtraining/ underlying conditions e.g fibromylagia chronic fatigue etc.,
