Common complaints treated by Rachel Duncombe Physiotherapy include:

  • Spinal problems including headaches, prolapsed discs, degeneration, sciatica, lumbago, whiplash, stiff/painful neck and referred arm and leg pains
  • Joint problems arthritis, injury, pain and swelling, stiffness in joints
  • Injuries to muscles, ligaments, cartilage and tendons.
  • Work- related conditions such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) and sports injuries
  • After surgery rehabilitation after orthopaedic surgery eg. joint replacements and arthroscopies
  • Biomechanical problems assessment and correction eg. orthotics
  • Fracture treatment to gain full function once the bones have healed

Physiotherapists will not only treat the problem but, by spending time with the patient, will often be able to demonstrate how to help the patient prevent a reoccurrence of the problem.

Physiotherapists use a number of different techniques including manipulation and mobilisation, massage, exercise programmes, electrotherapy (eg. ultrasound) and acupuncture.

Firstly a detailed history of your condition together with any relevant past medical history will be taken.

A physical assessment will then be undertaken to determine the clinical diagnosis of your problem. We will then discuss with you a proposed treatment plan and will give you an estimate as to the length of treatment required and the proposed outcome of your treatment.

All new patient assessments will require a 45 minute appointment.

Follow-up treatments will generally still require a 45 minute appointment, however, shorter appointments are available if conditions require less treatment time.
