Benefits of Treatment

The benefits of physiotherapy treatment are well researched and documented. Hatfield Practice provides preventative exercise-based approaches that are carefully combined with deep tissue massage, electrotherapy, acupuncture and manipulation. All treatments work really well to reduce pain, relax muscles and strengthen the body. It is great to know that Physiotherapy is clinically tested, cost-effective and can make an enormous difference to our quality of life.  Physiotherapy is perfect for treating everyday mishaps, work or sports injuries. Physiotherapy can provide physical rehabilitation after road traffic accidents, surgery or illness. Treatments and exercise programs can reduce the use of painkillers and reduce the risk of ongoing pain.

Physiotherapy treatment may bring increased energy and confidence; easing pain and increasing strength helps enormously. Physiotherapy can improve flexibility and reduce pain. With age, improvements are best made with small gentle but consistent steps over time. It won’t take long to feel better, for momentum to follow and positive new habits are formed.  Living well at an advanced age takes determination and time spent on keeping it all working.

Everyone can benefit from Physiotherapy!

Whether you are recovering from back pain or suffering after that weekend rugby or football game?  Physiotherapy can help to improve the way your body functions, moves and feels. Physical independence gives you the freedom to move freely and to work and train harder. Physiotherapy can make an enormous difference in an individual’s ability to perform at a high level. Most peoples lives are hectic and stressful getting enough exercise and eating well is hard. Physiotherapy treatment performed well is also an education and long term investment. Physiotherapy aims to help you over life’s ups and downs encouraging a pain-free, flexible and active lifestyle. 

Why pay for physiotherapy, its available on the NHS for free?

Studies show that fast access to treatment speeds up healing times. Professional sports teams, surgical wards and athletes already know this. Long term pain may stiffen the body and cause stress in other areas. Stiffness often drives inflammation because everything is so tight and such an effort. 

 It’s important to know that movement not only helps the muscles stay strong but keeps all our internal organs healthy. If your spine and rib cage are stiff, it’s harder to breathe and simple activities can be hard work. Blood pressure and heart rate may go up to compensate. 

We will look to improve both your current fitness and function. Work with you with the aim of improving your overall well being. Small steps are all it takes to improve your general fitness and become pain-free.  As well as working with sports and occupational injuries, our Physiotherapists have experience of working with the elderly, disabled and long term unwell.
