Back pain

Back pain is a common problem for many people, often presenting as a result of an acute injury such as direct trauma in sports, or whiplash injury in a road traffic accident. Back pain may also be due to poor postural alignment or degeneration in the spine.

Musculoskeletal conditions affecting the back include:

  • Prolapsed disc
  • Slipped disc
  • Scoliosis
  • Spondylosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Whiplash

Physiotherapy for back pain includes manual therapy and exercises to increase core stability. Treatment aims to reduce back pain, increase strength and restore normal function. Postural advice and exercises are also important for rehabilitation.

Neck pain

Similarly to back pain, neck pain can result from acute injury, poor postural alignment and degeneration in the cervical spine. Other symptoms accompanying neck pain may include reduced movement of the neck, headaches, referred pain into the back/shoulders, dizziness and loss of balance.

Physiotherapy can help many neck complaints including:

  • Whiplash
  • Neck stiffness
  • Post fracture
  • Postural syndrome
  • Torticollis

Manual therapy teamed with a home exercise programme at Ian Rodgerson Physiotherapy can help to eliminate your neck pain and allow you to return to normal function/sport.

Shoulder pain

The shoulder joint is used for many everyday activities, hobbies and sports. Shoulder pain can therefore severely restrict your daily activity and ability to participate in sports.

Our physiotherapists are experienced in assessment and diagnosis of various shoulder conditions including:

  • Dislocation
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Rotator cuff disorders
  • Impingement

We understand the importance of shoulder rehabilitation and our therapists have the experience to provide the most effective treatment plan for you. Your treatment plan will be tailor made by your physiotherapist following your initial assessment.

Hip pain

Various conditions can affect the hip joint resulting in pain, limiting daily activities such as sitting, standing, walking and getting in and out of bed. We understand how disabling hip pain can be. Conditions affecting the hip joint include arthritis, bursitis and fractures of the femoral head.

Physiotherapy can help to manage or resolve pain through various techniques such as joint mobilisation, exercise therapy and orthotic assessment. The treatment plan for hip pain will vary depending on your condition and will be made individual to you to meet your goals.

Knee pain

Our specialist physiotherapists frequently assess, diagnose and treat knee pain. Many structures in and around the knee joint may cause pain, swelling and inflammation, leading to reduction in function and weakening of surrounding muscles.

Physiotherapy can help you return to daily functional activities such as walking, climbing stairs and standing from a chair.

Physiotherapy techniques for knee pain include:

  • Deep soft tissue massage
  • Patella mobilisations
  • Exercise rehabilitation
  • Biomechanical gait analysis

Sports specific rehabilitation training can also help you get back into training and competitive level with confidence.

Foot and ankle pain

Direct trauma, repetitive trauma or biomechanical abnormalities, such as flat feet, are the main causes of foot and ankle pain. Foot and ankle injuries can happen to anyone; but runners, footballers and dancers are more susceptible to injury than others.

Common foot and ankle injuries include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ligament sprain
  • Stress fractures
  • Achilles tendon pain

Our physiotherapists will assess you to determine the exact cause of the problem and form a diagnosis. The specific diagnosis and the goals you would like to achieve will determine a treatment plan devised by your therapist, individual to you. Treatment may include manual therapy, exercise prescription, biomechanical assessment and orthotic correction.

Sports injury

At Ian Rodgerson Physiotherapy, we specialise in rehabilitation following sports injury. Our physiotherapists have extensive experience in effective rehab to get you back into training and competition as quickly as possible.

Physiotherapy rehabilitation involves manual therapies such as deep soft tissue massage and joint manipulation alongside a specific exercise programme, with the ultimate aim of returning to your sport. Exercises aim to restore your strength, balance, co-ordination and cardiovascular fitness.

Benefits of physiotherapy include:

  • Elimination of pain
  • Return to sport
  • Restored movement
  • Increase in muscle strength for optimum function
  • Reduced risk of future injury

We treat people of all ages and sporting abilities from those with low impact hobbies to elite sporting athletes.

Muscle and ligament injury

Muscle and ligament injuries can happen to anyone through direct or repetitive trauma. Muscle and ligament injuries fit into 2 categories: a muscle strain or a ligament sprain. A strain or sprain occurs when a muscle or ligament is overstretched or torn. Your physiotherapist will be able to assess and diagnose your specific injury following a subjective and physical examination.

Strains and sprains lead to pain and inflammation; leading to muscle weakness and joint instability. Physiotherapy advice and treatment is important in managing muscle and ligament injuries correctly. Our physiotherapists take a rehabilitation approach of hands on techniques and exercise prescription, allowing you to return to every day function free of pain.



To book an appointment with us please call 01432 806 544 or e-mail info@herefordphysiotherapy.co.uk for further information on our services.



Whiplash

Whiplash is commonly associated with road traffic accidents, resulting in muscle spasm in the neck and back muscles. Other symptoms may include headaches, referred pain, numbness and pins and needles.

At Ian Rodgerson Physiotherapy, treatment for whiplash includes:

  • Advice to decrease pain and inflammation
  • Range of movement exercises
  • Manual therapy
  • Progressive exercises (strengthening)

Physiotherapy can help speed up your recovery following whiplash, for a quick return to normal daily function, work, hobbies and sport.
