PCR Physiotherapy

PCR Physiotherapy employs a variety of methods to alleviate a wide range of symptoms from the musculo-skeletal system. This complex system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves and allows you to move, work and be active. If you have pain or other symptoms due to these structures then Physiotherapy may be exactly what you need.

Physiotherapy is drug free and works by enhancing the body's own healing mechanism to relieve itself of symptoms such as pain, limited range of movement, reduction of muscle strength and restriction of normal daily activities.

At PCR Physiotherapy, your treatment may include hands-on mobilisation techniques and soft tissue massage. We may prescribe an exercise program to complement clinical treatment.

Initial Assesment

An initial assessment involves a thorough examination of your problem. You will be asked about your pain, general health and relevant past medical history. After this there will be a physical examination so that we can establish the cause of your pain. Treatment may involved within the assessment and you will be given some home exercises to help you manage the problem yourself.

Follow Up Sessions
