Musculoskeletal physiotherapy treatment in London

swedish_massage

Orthopaedic is the treatment of diseases or injuries related to the musculoskeletal system. This system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves and allows you to move, walk and be active.

Orthopaedic Physiotherapy specialises in the treatment of patients undergoing surgery or those who had a traumatic accident. This includes:

  • Patients undergoing procedures such as hip replacement, knee replacement, elbow replacement, shoulder replacement, posterior cruciate ligament/ anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions, knee/hip elbow arthroscopy, back surgery, spinal and peripheral joint injections.
  • Trauma patients with injuries including lower limb fractures, fractured neck of femur, upper limb fractures, spinal fractures and many other musculoskeletal and soft tissue conditions.

If you are an Axa or Bupa patient, you cannot book online. Please call our office with your authorisation number.

If you cannot find an appointment which suits you or would like a home visit, call us or send us a message: we will do our best to find you a slot.


Orthopaedic Physiotherapy assessment (London)

During the initial assessment, which will take place during a home visit in London or at our practice, our London physiotherapist will examine and assess the following areas.

  • Joint range of movement
  • Muscle tightness
  • Muscle strength
  • Current mobility with or without walking aids
  • Altered sensation
  • Review of activities of daily living

The orthopaedic physiotherapist will then create a program of exercises aiming at specific targets and adapted to the patient’s specific needs. If any specialised equipment is used for the exercises, the physiotherapist will provide that.

Physiotherapy treatment of Orthopaedic pathologies (London)

Depending on your individual pathology, treatment might include:

  • Exercises to increase range of movement
  • Exercises to strengthen the muscles
  • Exercises to increase mobility
  • Transfer practice
  • Progression of mobility, including gait re-education

Each session progresses around the mobilisation of the affected joints. The painful and contracted muscles are stretched and strengthened in order to improve the patient’s performance, achieve their goals and accelerate the recovery process.

Prevention is also very important for our London physiotherapist who will explain and show you how to execute everyday movements correctly. Our London Orthopaedic physiotherapist will also teach you exercises to do on a regular basis between each home visit session or between sessions at either of the two Light Centre practices: London Wall near Moorgate station, in the heart of the City, or Belgravia, near Victoria station.  When the treatment is over, those exercises will allow you to keep the pain away in the long run and help avoid relapse and future injuries.

We are covered by most health insurances and are Bupa recognised and axa ppp recognised
