What is Physiotherapy?
At ROCK Exeter Physiotherapy we address the whole body, and how it functions through the movement and hands on approach. Physiotherapist has a broad knowledge of the human body. This means they can provide a holistic approach to your health and wellness, helping you to achieve your goals no matter what stage of life you are in.
How Can Physiotherapy help me?
Our physiotherapist has a range of tools and experience to help people with a variety of health concerns:
Many people use a physiotherapist to assistant with exercise, sport and rehabilitation. For example, it is popular to use a physio while building up to a specific goal or event to help aid in training while also preventing the risk of injury. Physiotherapy is also used when returning to training after a long break, surgery or an injury which has prevented regular training.
Can I have Physiotherapy alongside Chiropractic care?
Physiotherapy is often used in combination with Chiropractic, this is because Chiropractic specialises in the bones, joints and nervous system, whereas physiotherapists specialise in the muscular and soft tissue aspects of health. If there is both a structural and muscular component, then it is very beneficial to see both. Whatever your problem, At ROCK we are able to combine expertise to make sure you are seen by the right person and getting the right treatment. Many people also like to see a Physiotherapist and a Chiropractor for their overall wellbeing, even when they don’t have a specific complaint.
Physiotherapy can help benefit in many areas:
Rehabilitation after muscle injury
Fibromyalgia / ME
Ankle Sprains, Knee Sprains and Muscle and tissue strains
Knee pain, Hip pain, Shoulder pain, and discomfort
Our Physiotherapist will help you through Chronic and Acute conditions as well as support you in regenerating your body so those injuries won't recur.
