Physiotherapy in Tonbridge

Chartered and professional Physiotherapists in Tonbridge to help restore movement and function.

What is Physio?

Physiotherapy is largely an education and exercise based therapy most commonly used to help and treat any musculoskeletal injury or disorder (in other words, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments or similar).

We treat acute injuries like disc bulges, whiplash, sprains, strains, trauma and nerve pain, as well as chronic problems like joint disorders, previous damage and degeneration.

Physiotherapy can also help with the management of conditions such as repetitive strain injuries, arthritis and multiple joint pain. We can also help with minor injuries and sprains to help prevent worsening of pain or discomfort. Our physiotherapist in Tonbridge will take a holistic view of your lifestyle to provide a truly bespoke service.

As a new patient, your initial session will take up to one hour and will involve the completion of a form relating to your medical history, a discussion about your symptoms, a full assessment and of course treatment.

You’ll also be given advice and a home exercise plan if required. Follow-up sessions can take up to 30 minutes and will be mainly focused on treatment and making adjustments to your management plan where necessary.

What to Expect

The number of treatments needed depends on the condition and the individual, but you’ll never be asked or expected to book a minimum number of treatments.

All information gathered during your initial consultation, subsequent treatments and on-going management is completely confidential. Occasionally it might be necessary to consult your GP or another specialist, but this will only ever be done with your consent.

The Treatment

Our physiotherapists in Tonbridge use a variety of physiotherapy treatment types, including muscle release, joint release, manipulation, anti-inflammatory treatments, strapping, stretching and strengthening. They may also recommend additional treatments such as acupuncture and podiatry.

Generally, the earlier physiotherapy is started, the faster the return to health, work or sport. Long-standing problems also respond well to an accurate diagnosis, a comprehensive treatment plan and advice on preventing reoccurrence.
