Physiotherapy Treatments

At Physiologix we provide a range of other physiotherapy treatments. They include:

Pilates

PilatesPilates is a popular form of exercise that is suitable for all ages and abilities. It is an excellent way to gain flexibility and improve posture. It is an effective way to strengthen muscles and improve balance. It is a low impact exercise and therefore relatively safe for most people.

Although it is not a way of "burning fat" it is highly recommended to incorporate Pilates into your training regime in order to reduce the risk of injury.

There is strong evidence to suggest that Pilates can help reduce lower back pain and is incorporated into many physiotherapy exercise programmes. Pilates involves a series of stretches and postural holds. Much concentration is given to the timing and breathing during each exercise. It can be useful to reduce stress and aid relaxation.

Podiatry

PodiatryThe profession of podiatry has developed from its origins in chiropody to become a medical speciality dealing with assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb. Podiatry has developed a broad scope of practice focusing on the use of scientific principles for the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of a wide range of lower limb disorders.

A podiatrist can deal with a huge range of lower limb and foot disorders including:

• Biomechanical problems, related to the position of the foot and lower limb and its effect  on hips, spine, pelvis.
• Soft tissue and sporting injuries such as plantar fascitis and Achilles tendon problems
• Chiropody related problems such as corns and toe nail problems

The podiatrist will start with an assessment of the problem and can prescribe and manufacture orthotics if required.
