Injuries can occur for a whole bunch of reasons from traumatic causes like a fall or collision to more chronic repetitive activities that chip away at some area of weakness over time.
Other conditions can be more systemic like arthritis, hypermobility or Parkinson’s disease. Like doctors, physiotherapists go through clinical rotations once qualified to be able to make a diagnosis based on experience and a sound clinical base. Whilst the conditions are split up into body sites for ease of explanation, rarely do injuries sit alone. For example, tennis elbow will inevitably occur due to lack of shoulder or thoracic movement or poor tennis stroke technique while low back pain can be due to poor posture, core weakness or lack of range in the hips.
Whatever the cause of pain or the contributing factors to it, we will endeavour to diagnosis and fix it with you.
