What matters most is that you have an understanding of your problem and hope for change
All appointments are 60 minutes.
Persistent joint and muscle aches and pains
My approach at Alison Hull Physiotherapy is to treat the whole body, not just an isolated injury.
I look at every aspect of your daily life from hobbies, exercise and working or sitting position to determine the nature of your problem. We then work out together, how to improve this by:
Hands on joint, fascia and soft tissue mobilisation
Ways to improve movement and posture
Looking at the mind body energetic connection and the influence this has on your condition.
Exercises and habits to take away to maintain improvement.
Follow up treatment and maintenance appointments.
Back and neck pain
Pain and symptoms originating from the spine like any problem need a thorough assessment to gain a picture of the many causes contributing to your specific situation.
We then work together with hands-on treatment, posture changes and exercises to improve your situation.
This will also include on-going home exercises and follow ups as necessary.
If I have any concern regarding the nature of the condition I will refer to other medical colleagues for investigations or opinions.
Post-op joint replacement
Post-op physiotherapy is vital following knee and hip replacement. It is often a painful and anxious time wondering if you are doing your exercises properly.
I provide physiotherapy to reassure, encourage and assist your recovery. If necessary I will do a home visit in the early stages and then continue to see you in my home practice.
Sports and dance injury
I apply the same principles for any injury which means understanding the causes and details of the injury as well as other factors that could have caused you to fall, twist or tear something.
Together we will improve your technique with soft tissue treatments, taping strengthening balance and stretching.
Hypermobility is the term used to describe the ability to move joints beyond the normal range of movement.
For a small percentage of the population, instead of being advantageous, hypermobility may be associated with joint and ligament injuries, pain, fatigue and other symptoms.
I have a particular interest in treating children and adults with the long term consequences of persistent joint aches and pains as I feel it often goes undiagnosed.
