Physiotherapy is a health care profession concerned with human function and movement and maximising potential. It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical, psychological and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status. It is science-based and committed to extending, applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery. The exercise of clinical judgement and informed interpretation is at its core.
What Does AlignClinics Physiotherapy Offer?
The Clinical Specialists at Align Clinics have an excellent professional relationship with the Orthopaedic Consultants in and around the Cardiff area, throughout Bristol and Bath and up to Droitwich and Bromsgrove. Thus allowing excellent communication and seamless care to be provided from Consultant to Therapist in the provision of correct pre and post operative protocols for the clients individual needs.
Align Clinics is fortunate to be situated within Vitality Health Club. This allows all of Align Clinics clients to have treatment within a clinic room as well as specific sport related rehabilitation within a gym environment in order to reach and surpass full recovery.
Pre Operative and Post Operative Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Treatment.
We aim to start treatment straight from the initial injury to prepare the client for surgery by explaining the orthopaedic procedure and what is it be expected of the client to gain the best possible outcome after surgery.
An exercise regime is given to maximise the muscle strength, length and joint range of movement, to reduce the risk of further damage pre operatively and to enhance results post operatively
Treatment is continued immediately post operatively and the correct advice, education, information and a specific strict exercise programme correlating to the clients individual operation is progressed through to full recovery.
Diagnosis of symptoms
The Clinical Specialists at Align Clinics have had extensive experience in the initial assessment and diagnosis of symptoms, having worked alongside numerous consultants in their NHS and private clinics.
A full subjective and Objective assessment will be undertaken and fully explained to the client.
Any X ray or MRI scans will also be explained to the client.
A diagnosis will be reached combining all of the information collected, concluding the site and structure of the primary injury and any secondary compensated symptoms.
A Plan will be discussed with each individual client for the best possible treatment; these being a course of physiotherapy, a biomechanical assessment, provision of a brace or orthotics (insoles), referral to another Health Care Professional, referral to a specific Consultant or a combination of the above.
