What is

MSK Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a degree-based, science; a healthcare profession that encourages a ‘whole person’ approach to improving your physical health and wellbeing.

We train in a wide range of medical fields, the most well-known speciality being Musculo-skeletal (MSK). At the centre of this approach is encouragement of our patients to be fully involved, to understand all aspects of the management and treatment options available throughout the recovery and treatment period.

MSK Physiotherapy treatment may include ‘hands on’ techniques, such as joint and soft tissue mobilisation, manipulation and soft tissue massage techniques; to help improve muscle, fascia and soft tissue length, to relieve pain and improve function.

We can help with:

  • Back pain

  • Whiplash associated disorder

  • Sports Injuries

  • Arthritis

What to expect at your 1st appointment.

Our physiotherapists will take a detailed history of your injury, pain or problem. Please bring, or email in advance, any relevant medical correspondence or investigation results that might help diagnosis and treatment.

A close examination of the area is then vital, so you may prefer to bring shorts especially if you are being seen for a knee, hip or back examination.

Your first appointment will be 45-60 mins; your physio will endeavour to include active treatment, although sometimes more time is required to assess and advise, rather than immediately rushing in to treat ‘hands-on’.

Any exercise advice, ergonomic advice for your workplace, or alternative treatments, will be appropriate for your condition or injury, tailored to your needs. Exercise prescription software may be used; exercise programmes and videos emailed to you. Exercise tools may be recommended and provided.

JK Physio has been exceptional – with caring and efficient staff. They are very polite and over the years I have been coming the physiotherapy has helped me so much to keep me active.

Your treatment plan will be made up from one or more of our specialised modalities. These are:

  • ‘Hands-on’ treatment and manipulation. At JK Physio we use a multitude of ‘hands on’ techniques to assist in relieving pain, improving tissue viability and improving muscle, fascia, ligament and joint mobility.

  • TECARtherapy: Winback. Its versatility, effectiveness, and ability to expedite recovery make Winback TECARtherapy a valuable tool in the field of rehabilitation and physical therapy. Read more about Winback TECARtherapy.
  • Prescription Exercises. The prescription of home exercises to re-dress the imbalance of the strength and length of muscles, often caused as a result of poor posture or injury.
  • Ergonomic advice. Help and advice particularly with sitting at a PC either at home or in the workplace, to avoid unnecessary stress on the body. Particularly important for the back and neck.
Do I need a chaperone?2024-04-10T09:03:42+00:00

If you wish to be chaperoned during the appointment, please either bring a companion, or ask in advance and we will ensure someone is with you throughout. We have both male and female physiotherapists in our team.

How long is an appointment?2024-03-20T16:10:45+00:00

We allow between 45 mins to an hour for the 1st appointment. This should allow a thorough assessment, an explanation of the Physio’s findings and any necessary management strategies. The Physio will endeavour to include active treatment at your first appointment although sometimes more time is required to assess with the focus then on giving detailed advice, rather than immediately rushing in to treat ‘hands-on’.

You will then be informed of the time required for subsequent appointments, this will depend on the course of treatment required.

What exercises should I do?2024-03-20T16:10:51+00:00

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists will always give exercise advice appropriate for your condition or injury. This will be tailored to you and specific needs for your lifestyle and expectations. Exercise prescription software may be used and exercise programmes and videos emailed to you. Exercise tools may be recommended and provided.

How will a physiotherapist help manage my problems?2024-03-20T16:10:58+00:00

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists have had in depth training and have strongly developed skills and experience in diagnosing and explaining the origins of your symptoms. They are also highly trained and best placed to explain and help you understand the implications of their findings and how you can successfully manage and treat to gain a speedy recovery or maximise your ability, such as whether to rest, exercise, apply ice, or use a brace for example.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists will give in depth advice on the management of your problems. This may also include ‘hands-on’ techniques, such as joint and soft tissue mobilisation, joint manipulation and soft tissue massage techniques. They may also be trained in other treatment methods to complement their hands on approach, such as electrotherapy, acupuncture and injection therapy.
