Movement Assessment and Improvement
Physiotherapy can also be a preventative treatment. It is possible that your current posture and patterns of movement could cause you problems in the future and lead to painful conditions that will then become difficult to treat as you grow older. These often start as minor or occassional discomforts which are easily ignored.
Do you experience:
· Recurring injuries
· Poor performance in sport
· Problems caused by your work
You could have stiff or locked joints, tight muscles and tendons or strength imbalances which are not causing you pain yet.
An assessment of your body’s movement pattern will highlight areas that need attention to:
· Improve strength and balance
· Increase range and control of movement
· Prevent development of future problems and injuries
A programme of treatment, exercises, stretches and postural correction could help you gain better control of your body.
