What does Physiotherapy treatment involve?

  • A full detailed history of the condition/injury will be taken from the client The Physiotherapist will also ask about the client's medical history
  • A physical examination of the area(s) involved - inspection of the area(s), joint range of movement, resisted muscle tests, specific diagnostic tests as required, palpation of muscles and joints - expect "hands on" assessment.
  • Diagnosis will then be discussed and explained
  • Treatment plan formulated, agreed with client and then implemented
  • May involve application of Ultrasound therapy (or other electrotherapy modalities), "hands on" treatment such as joint mobilisation/manipulation, or soft-tissue massage
  • Sometimes acupuncture will be offered if Physiotherapist deems it appropriate (client must give their consent first)
  • Always involves Homework! The client will be sent away with advice and or exercises to work on to resolve/improve their condition

Additionally we can offer Hippotherapy as an intervention at sites in Glasgow and Renfrewshire.

Hippotherapy: This is a form of physiotherapy that uses a horse as the therapeutic modality. The multidimensional movement of the horse provides a dynamic base on which the child may be placed in order to facilitate balance.

Documented therapeutic effects include improvement in;

  • Awareness of midline
  • Coordination and balance
  • Muscle co-contraction and stability of the trunk
  • Sitting posture
  • Functional performance
  • Feeling of well being

Children requiring help with trunk stability, symmetry, sitting balance and gait re-education would optimally benefit.

Paediatric rates will be determined by individual needs & location of treatment.
