Physiotherapy treatment is an instrumental tool in keeping us healthy. Just like your car, our bodies need regular maintenance to perform optimally.
All our physiotherapists are registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).
The HPC is responsible for setting up the national standards of professional conduct and continued professional development.
Amnish began his career in the Musculoskeletal arena having undertaken postgraduate training in UK and India.Building his Musculoskeletal background he diversified into Cervical and Lumbar pain with special interest in Whiplash injuries.He completed MSc in Applied physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal) from Sheffield Hallam University.He was trained under Mr Kevin J Banks( Member, International Maitland Teacher Association),Dr Sionnadh Mclean(Phd and Head of Clinical reasoning-Musculoskeletal Module,SHU) and Ed Baker (Extended scope practitioner and HOD of Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy).
He worked as a Senior Physiotherapist in East Kent NHS Trust,Betsi Cadwaladr University Local Health Board and Private Hospitals since 13 years.
In addition to the physios, The Physio-treatment Clinic has a multi disciplinary team including acupuncturist, massage therapists, a fully qualified pilates instructor as well as a yoga and exercise instructor with a vast range of experience.
Acupuncture for pain control is more widely accepted. Needling is a painful stimulus which releases histamine, calcitonin-gene related peptide and causes a local inflammatory reaction (Wu,1999). Small afferent A-delta fibres are also stimulated that cause the release of b endorphin and leu-enkephalin in the dorsal horn of the affected spinal cord segment. These substances block the transmission of small C fibre mediated nociceptive input to the ascending sensory columns through the mechanism of ‘pain gating’ (Melzack and Wall,1996), thus reducing the experience of pain. Segmental mechanisms of pain control are most likely to act locally and are probably responsible for the analgesic effects of needling close to the site of pain. People with Chronic low back Pain see marked reductions in low back pain during Treatments.
TREATMENTS INCLUDING ELECTROTHERAPY: LASER ,ULTRASOUND,TENS.
CONSERVATIVE TREATMENTS:CUPPING THERAPY, MANIPULATION,MASSAGEWhat is laser therapy?
L.A.S.E.R stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Laser Therapy involves applying low intensity laser light to relieve pain following damage to soft tissue. Laser therapy facilitates tissue repair and restores normal cell function.
Low level therapy involves using an infra-red spectrum which penetrates the skin and stimulates the cells within muscles, tendons or ligaments, promoting healing.
The method of application will depend on your presenting condition. A treatment head or probe is usually applied directly to the tissue being treated. The amount of energy exposed to the tissue is controlled by the physiotherapist.
What is Ultrasound used for in Physical Therapy?
Ultrasound is an effective way to treat swelling of muscles, joints, and ligaments.
Ultrasound can be used to treat a wide range of health problems. But, it's most commonly used to solve problems in muscle tissue. The heating effect of the ultrasound helps to heal muscle pain and reduces chronic inflammation.
Ultrasound also helps tissue fluids flow better — which means that more lymph passes through the tissues. Lymph is an important fluid that transports white blood cells throughout the body. So, in this way, ultrasound helps your damaged cells fight infections and heal faster.
Physiotherapy is an essential aid to recover strength and movement following surgery such as:
• Ligament reconstructions
• Tendon repairs
• Meniscectomy (removal of knee cartilages)
• Setting of fractures
• Removal of spinal disks
• Joint replacements
