Physiotherapy

The basic aim of physiotherapy is to help alleviate pain and restore normal movement and function patterns to help return the body to its natural state. Physiotherapy includes the assessment, diagnosis and treatment.

We use a wide range of manual techniques such as manipulations, mobilisations, massage and exercise therapy . Some of our staff are also qualified to use acupuncture for pain relief in conjunction with other physiotherapy techniques. All of our staff here in Chorlton are trained in Kinesiology taping, and a few have progressed this to be training in Rock taping, involving power taping.  Kinesiology taping is the latest technique to help aid recovery rates and improve performance.  Our aim is to return you to the highest level of fitness possible using appropriate techniques and expert advice for the future.

Anatomy Manchester, based in Chorlton has a well-established and strong reputation for physiotherapy in Manchester.  We mainly deal with private physiotherapy patients and our fully qualified and experienced physiotherapists and sports rehabilitators are able to treat a wide variety of problems – from back, neck and knee pain, to muscle injuries.  Our physiotherapists are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and are registered with the Health Professions Council.

Assessment

Before you receive any treatment or advice, one of our chartered physiotherapists or sports rehabilitators will discuss your condition with you and carefully examine the symptoms and nature of your problem. From there, we can decide whether physiotherapy or rehabilitation is appropriate and then formulate a treatment programme tailored to your needs. Your first appointment will be 45 minutes with the clinic director and 1 hour with a senior practitioner.  This ensures you will receive treatment in your first session to speed up your path to full recovery.

Treatment

Follow up treatment sessions, after the initial assessment, will take approximately 30 minutes with the clinic director and 45 minutes with a senior practitioner. These sessions may be totally treatment based to start with and as you and your injuries progress they will become more and more exercise based.  With this in mind we ask you to bring appropriate clothing for your treatments.

To help with common ailments such as postural issues, lower back pain and neck pain we have devised specific exercised based programmes for you to follow at home to help with the management of these issues. For more information click on the links below or ring 01618610848 for details and prices.
