Conditions we treat

Back pain

Back problems affect most people at some point in their lives and come in many forms. Lower back pain is second only to the common cold as a cause of lost days at work. It can be debilitating affecting the sufferer’s life. Common back pain causes include nerve and muscular problems, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis.

Shoulder pain

The shoulder is an extremely mobile joint that plays a role in the action of the arm and is at high risk of injury. Pain can occur due to conditions that involve the shoulder joint, the soft tissues and bones surrounding the shoulder or the nerves that supply sensation to the shoulder joint.

Knee injuries

The knee is a complex joint with many components, making it vulnerable to a variety of injuries. Knee injuries are common, especially when taking part in sport. Injuries to soft tissues, such as ligaments, cartilage and tendons, are the most common, although damage to the bones is also possible.

Sports injuries

More and more people are involved in sports at some level in the UK which has increased the occurrence of sports injuries. Sprains and strains are a very common type of injury that affects the muscles and ligaments. Ligaments are strong bands of tissue around joints that connect one bone to another and help to keep the bones together and stable.

Arm and Elbow pain

Pain in the arm and elbow may be caused by local structures within or around the elbow or may be referred from other sources such as the neck or back.

Neck pain

Neck pain is a common problem seen at the Hyndland Physiotherapy Clinic. Pain in the neck can be due to injury, a mechanical or muscular problem, a trapped nerve caused by a bulge in one of the discs between the vertebrae or from arthritis of the neck.

Foot and Ankle problems

The foot and ankle is a complex interplay between bones, joints and ligaments which have a protective action upon one another and can be prone to a selection of injuries including Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and sprained ligaments.

Headaches

Headaches have many causes and can be symptomatic of stress and tension in the neck or can be muscular or disc related.

Hip and knee replacement rehabilitation

We are extremely experienced in the rehabilitation protocols for hip and knee replacement. We have extensive knowledge in dealing with the particular problems that may be experienced.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation within a joint. There are many types of arthritis ranging from those related to wear and tear of cartilage such as osteoarthritis to those associated with inflammation resulting from an overactive immune system such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Hand and wrist pain

One of the most common causes of wrist pain is a sprained wrist. A sprain is an injury to a ligament, the tough fibrous tissue that connects bones to other bones. Ligament injuries involve a stretching or a tearing of this tissue.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used in China for over 3000 years. It is considered one of the older forms of medicine. The Eastern Explanation for how Acupunctures works is that the life energy flowing through the body which is termed Qi (pronounced chee) can be influenced and balanced by stimulating specific points on the body.
