Physiotherapy treatment

Physiotherapy treatment is incredibly effective, hands-on, safe, and works brilliantly.  It’s cost-effective and can make an enormous difference to people’s quality of life.  Physiotherapy is perfect for treating everyday mishaps, work, or sports injuries. Physical rehabilitation after road traffic accidents, surgery, or illness can reduce the use of painkillers and reduce the risk of ongoing pain.

Physiotherapy treatment involves several hands-on treatment options. Often preventative exercise-based approaches combined with deep tissue massage, electrotherapy, acupuncture, and manipulation. All work well to reduce pain, relax muscles, and strengthen the body. 

 Physiotherapy involves looking at the body as a whole person, rather than focusing on individual anatomical areas. Physiotherapists look for the primary or root causes of dysfunction within the patient’s muscle and joint biomechanics.  A personal approach can help educate, encourage, and reduce the risk of ongoing injuries. Hatfield Practice Physiotherapy has excellent preventative treatment and rehabilitative plans. With even a small amount of practice, you can apply methods and exercises to everyday activities such as your favourite hobby, sport, workplace, or if you want your body to feel better.

Physiotherapy treatment can make a huge difference in how you feel

Physiotherapy is excellent for people of all ages and activity levels. As we all live longer, our bodies need to be kept functional and pain-free as humanly possible. We may all benefit from exercise rehabilitation and treatment a Chartered Physiotherapist can bring. Improving the ability to live an active, independent, and healthy lifestyle brings confidence and energy. Importantly Physiotherapy can provide detailed specific advice and guidance during your rehabilitation or injury. Call us anytime if you wish to speak to one of our Hatfield Physiotherapists.

Hatfield Practice physiotherapy can provide same-day treatments with an essential part of recovery if training for an event or recovering from surgery. Fast pain relief is vital and a fundamental part of Physiotherapy treatment. Studies have shown that treatment within a week can positively influence on healing times. 

In part, Physiotherapy works by improving the body’s mechanical function, emotional confidence, range of movement, improves efficiency by improving balance, technique, blood supply, and strength; improved physical function helps to reduce injury and often pain. Hatfield Practice will refer across to other specialists such as Osteopaths, or for Traditional Acupuncture and occasionally onward to  Gp’s or surgeons if required.  

All our Physio’s are HCPC Registered

All our physiotherapists are the Health and Care Professions Council registered. In the UK, this is a minimum requirement for all physios. The HCPC is responsible for setting and maintaining professional standards of practice. You can check the register here using your practitioner’s surname. Our physiotherapists are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP). Which means they have Chartered status. Being Chartered isn’t a requirement to work in the United Kingdom, but it is a recognised mark of high quality. Find out why you should choose your charter when it comes to physiotherapy.  We undertake enhanced DBS checks on all our physiotherapists. We think it’s essential to give patients peace of mind.

Providing you with Long term Physiotherapy Solutions

Physiotherapy provides you with long term health solutions that work. Hatfield Practice practitioners work together with many patients and feel that two heads are better than one. 

We can provide effective solutions for long term problems. Our ethos has always been that when people arrive with non-resolving and complex pain problems. They are spotted quickly and are often treated by two or more specialists at no extra cost during the same session. We have always worked this way – Providing Hatfield Practice patients with long term solutions is essential to us. We don’t want you to spend your life on a treatment table.

Hands-on Physiotherapy – Not “Just Exercises” in a gym

Physiotherapy is rapidly changing; it works well, is personal, tailored to you, hands-on, and dynamic. Hatfield Practice is much more personal than just a Physio in a gym. Your treatment is tailor-made to you, and will never be  “just exercises”. 

Hatfield Physiotherapist treatments may include light and deep soft tissue massage.  Mobilisation  (deep joint stretches) are excellent for stiff spines. Muscle energy stretches (actively resisted stretches) where the muscle has become tight from injury. 

Physiotherapists also use spinal manipulation or “cracking” techniques, which is similar to a Registered Osteopath or Chiropractic. Traction treatment is useful where discs have become worn or damaged.  Traditional Chinese Acupuncture is brilliant for many types of pain including tendonitis or nerve pain, that has become difficult to resolve. Interferential is very good ( dare I say ) for  “lumpy old tendons” and scar tissue etc. Diagnostic Ultrasound can be useful for calcified (arthritis) tendinitis and frozen shoulder tendonitis. Whatever your problem we will do our best to find a solution that works.
