What is physiotherapy?
Physiotherapists are involved in caring for people at every stage of life, taking a "whole person" or holistic approach to health and wellbeing. At Omnia we are happy to see you whatever your age and whatever your problem.
Whilst we all treat musculoskeletal conditions like back and neck pain, sports injuries, arthritis, rheumatological conditions, and pregnancy related pain to name a few; we are also able to help in the management of neurological and respiratory conditions.
To do this, a detailed and comprehensive assessment is conducted on the first visit. In addition to finding all about the problem that has brought the patient for physiotherapy, they will also be asked about their lifestyle and interests, so that treatment can be tailored to their needs.
How are physiotherapists trained?
Physiotherapy is a science-based profession requiring the completion of a recognised Physiotherapy degree which grants admittance to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, the profession's Governing Body. Physiotherapists at Omnia have all taken one step further, undertaking extensive post graduate training at Masters level.
What treatments do physiotherapists use?
Treatment options include: manual therapy, such as joint mobilisations or manipulations, soft tissue release and neural tissue mobilisation; exercises to improve posture, strength, flexibility or biomechanics; taping to support joint or soft tissue function; electrotherapy such as ultrasound; acupuncture and more! We are also able to offer home visits so that you can receive treatment in the comfort of your home if necessary.
A core focus of physiotherapy is the involvement of the patient in their own care, through education, awareness, and empowerment to participate in their treatment. This is something that Omnia takes very seriously indeed and is The Omnia Way.
