The Romans did it, the Greeks did it, the Indians did it; just about every civilisation developed hands on therapeutic techniques. A highly skilled therapist develops and hones specific manoeuvres and stretches carefully adjusting and accommodating to the contour and shape of the client. The external surface of the body can provide a deep insight into underlying musculoskeletal conditions so sensitive hands are the most valuable tools for a physiotherapist.
At Knowle and Dorridge Physio we're passionate about the benefits of hands on therapy and so this remains one of the key tools we use.
That's why at Knowle and Dorridge Physio we insist on allocating a full hour to the initial assessment. Firstly we'll listen carefully to how your symptoms developed then question you about your concerns, provide a diagnosis, propose a treatment plan if appropriate, provide self help advice and provide clear objectives of the proposed intervention.
So whether you're having problems with nerves, muscles, tendons, bones, joints, cartilage or ligaments, our job is to get you back to your normal lifestyle ASAP. For follow ups we provide up to 45 minutes, again this ensures we won't compromise on the quality of the service, our promise is that you won't feel that it's a quick in and out.
