Musculoskeletal Conditions

This covers anything from a sore back to a twisted ankle. Any structures can be involved, ligaments, joints, tendons, cartilage, nerves etc. Rapid access to physiotherapy can reduce the length of time people are off sick and is vital in preventing an acute problem from becoming chronic and long lasting.

A comprehensive assessment by Ruth Cooil Physiotherapy will result in a clear treatment plan and goal setting. Treatment may focus on self-management, pain relief, soft-tissue work, manual therapy, education and exercise (plus much, much more!). Working as a team, Ruth and the client will strive to improve function and facilitate a return to normal activity.
