At PhysioElite we use two primary tools to ensure that we look for any elements of compensation that may have occurred as part of your injury. We use an innovative Biomechanics screen which is a series of tests done lying and standing which looks at the mechanics of your body and ensures that you have the right exercises in order to return to health.
It is much like a car MOT where we look under the bonnet effectively of your body and give you a precise series of things to do to ensure that you have no compensation and that you become both pain and injury free and the injury is prevented from returning.
Secondarily we use a tool called ViMove which is a motion analysis technology where we apply specific sensors to your body in order to precisely analyse movement. As a result of this examination you get a bespoke series of exercises to carry out to deal with the effects of your damaged tissues. The idea of this again is to allow your body to return to normal, to enhance your wellbeing and empower you with the right exercises.
We have introduced Shockwave Therapy, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), which is a non-invasive technology that delivers sound waves to afflicted areas of the body and aids recovery. Shockwave Therapy is no longer the preserve of the sporting elite! It has become widely accepted in clinical practice for the treatment of chronic soft tissue injuries. Results for treating chronic tendinopathies and chronic muscle injuries are seen through improved range of movement and reduction of pain. Browse our ‘Shockwave’ tab which will give you a formative explanation of Shockwave. Please also feel free to book a Free of Charge telephone consultation with James online via the following link or with our Reception Service on 01179 570206 to discuss if Shockwave Therapy could be for you.
