Why choose me for Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy?

Most of the work I do is based around musculoskeletal physiotherapy principles, but with a twist. You may have tried physio before, but I’m pretty sure that when you come to see me, you’ll notice the difference.

The main difference between my style of musculoskeletal physio and others’ is that where they often focus purely on working out which specific tissue is painful, I spend the majority of the time analysing your whole body to work out why you have the problem, as that gives me the best chance of helping you to make a full and long-term recovery.

What to expect from an MSK physio assessment

  • A discussion of your injury, past medical history, and any potential barriers to recovery.
  • A posture screen to work out your resting/starting position.
  • An assessment of the movement(s) that trigger your symptoms, looking at your body as a whole and working out the key areas that affect your symptoms, as this helps me to work out where to analyse in more depth.
  • A deeper analysis of the key areas that affect your symptoms, which I call the “drivers” of your problem.
  • Working with you to form a treatment plan, so that the path forward is clear.

What treatment techniques do I use?

  • Manual therapy (hands-on treatment) to clear any barriers to high quality, functional movement
  • “First-aid” initial exercise rehabilitation techniques to help reduce any acute symptoms.
  • Mid-stage exercise rehabilitation, working on proprioception, aligning and controlling the driver, and motor patterning.
  • Later stage exercise rehabilitation, potentially incorporating input from other therapists, focusing more on strength, flexibility, endurance.
Musculoskeletal physio assessments are 90 minutes

Follow-up sessions if required are usually an hour – it’s important to me to be very thorough, as I want to be the last physiotherapist you need.

What is musculoskeletal physiotherapy?

The musculoskeletal system essentially provides form, support, stability, and movement to the body. It is made up of the bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together. It does not specifically include the nervous system or the visceral system, although both are important to musculoskeletal function and I treat those too.

Many of my patients have seen several other therapists and doctors before they find me, and find the difference they were looking for (more than one patient has remarked that they wished they’d met me “£10,000 ago!”) There are lots of other excellent doctors and therapists out there, and I love to collaborate with them where it’s appropriate; but my role within most ad-hoc therapy teams is always that of MSK physio.
