Assessment and physiotherapy treatment

Physiotherapy is an evidence-led medical treatment approach that helps to repair damage, to reduce pain and to prevent recurrence of symptoms. Almost any condition affecting your joints, soft tissues (such as muscles, ligaments, tendons) or nerves can be helped by physiotherapy treatment.

The benefits of physiotherapy

The majority of primary care doctors refer patients to a physiotherapist as the first course of action, because it is the least intrusive approach to recovery. A course of treatment has several other benefits that can prove to be as effective, and often better than other treatments.

Benefits include:

Reducing aches and pain

Physiotherapy techniques and exercises can improve the mobility of joints and soft tissue and restore the functionality of muscle, effectively reducing or eliminating pain.

Recurrent pain prevention

Following treatment, when patients continue to perform prescribed physical exercises, it can prevent the pain from returning.

Improved strength and mobility

Patients who have had surgery or serious injury will find simple activities challenging due to restricted mobility and loss of strength. Physiotherapy and prescribed exercise can restore mobility, and improve strength minimising pain recurrence. a

Faster recovery from injury and surgery

Physiotherapists can target parts of the body that typically take longer to mend, providing faster and long lasting recovery.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy

Cotswold Physiotherapy are experienced Chartered Physiotherapists providing Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) for the treatment of plantarfascitis, achilles, hamstring, patellar, gluteal and tennis elbow tendinopathies.

Shockwave Therapy is the application of shock waves in medicine. It is clinically proven that pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate metabolic reactions:

  • ​Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibres
  • Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
  • Stimulating the healing process triggered by stem cell activation.

How Shockwave Therapy Works

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is one of the few treatments that can work when an injury reaches a chronic non-healing state. Outcomes demonstrate the process of shockwave therapy stimulates the healing process in these injuries by provoking an acute phase of healing.

It has a strong evidence base and has been approved for use by NICE (The National Institute for Clinical Excellence).
