Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal & orthopaedic conditions, underpinned by a wealth of research & evidence. Our experienced physiotherapists certified by the Health Care Professionals Council & Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, take the time to fully understand and examine your complaint, ensuring our treatment can be ultimately effective. This treatment is through a range of safe and trusted techniques, performed after years of further training.

Physiotherapy Services in Mitcham & Crawley

 

At DP Sports Performance & Injury Clinic, our physiotherapists have spent years gaining experience in the assessment & management of a vast range of injuries. With backgrounds in sport, we believe expert assessment alongside proactive management can lead to the greatest outcomes and quickest returns.

That’s why in your assessment with us, you can expect a thorough and in depth examination into your complaint and the way it affects you and your training or daily goals.

Physiotherapy at DP Sports Performance & Injury Clinics is covered by all major health insurers, as well as an option to self fund your treatment. We do not require a referral to begin treatment, but do ask that you allow 45 minutes for the initial assessment to gather all the necessary information.

Onward Referrals

 

At DP Sports Performance & Injury Clinic we believe in honest advice, which is why at the end of your assessment, if we think you require further investigations or to see an orthopaedic consultant, we can refer you either privately or via your GP.

Not all conditions or injuries necessarily require further imaging such as MRI, Ultrasound or Xray, but where we think it may be beneficial, we can discuss this with you and refer directly for these investigations.

In the majority of cases, treatment can commence without the need for onward referrals or further investigations, but these options always remain should we feel your injury not improving at the expected levels.

What Treatments do our Physiotherapists use?

Acupuncture Mitcham Direct Physio

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a treatment technique originally derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine. This technique involves using specifically designed needles to stimulate sensory nerves under skin and in muscle. Acupuncture has many benefits, but is mainly used as pain relief in western medicine, and can be very useful for many conditions such as headaches, low back pain, knee pain and more. Acupuncture is carried out by fully qualified professionals that have undergone extensive further training and are members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.

Manual Techniques

Manual techniques are on all encompassing term for many of the hands-on techniques we use. This can include gentle to firm mobilisations of joints to higher grade manipulations of the spine. Through further training and continued development, your physiotherapist will discuss and determine the best options to help improve your symptoms.

Massage techniques are often used to release or relax soft tissue structures that may be causing or contributing to pain or stiffness. Massage techniques used by our physiotherapists include Instrument Assisted massage (often known as Graston or Blading), sports massage techniques, Massage gun & trigger point release.

Sports Taping is often associated with the colourful tape seen on professional athletes. Sports taping involves the use of specifically designed elasticated tape, applied to the body in a way that helps support muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. This stability can help alleviate pain and speed up recovery from injury.

Post op rehabilitation

Recovering from surgery can be tough, but our experienced physiotherapists are well versed in optimising your recovery. We understand that the process can be a journey. With a proactive approach, our vast treatment options and strength and conditioning facilities makes us the perfect location to take on that journey.
