Comprehensive Physiotherapy Treatment at the North West Independent Hospital
Physiotherapy requires trained and experienced use of various techniques to promote healing, decrease pain and prevent re-injury. Before recommending the right course of treatment, our physiotherapists will carry out a complete and comprehensive assessment. They will then discuss their findings with you, so you know what therapy is being recommended and why.
We share our knowledge and services across the entire hospital and will assess your own specific case carefully to determine the best course of treatment for you.

Our Physiotherapists are Registered and Experienced in All Forms of Physiotherapy

The team of Physiotherapists at the North West Independent Hospital
follow evidence based practice and are always looking for new advances in treatments so that they can give their patients the best possible care at all times. They have recently introduced extra corporeal shockwave therapy for the treatment of tendon problems. The treatment involves the application of pulses of energy to damaged tissues to initiate a healing response. The pulses (or shockwaves) are delivered via short bursts of compressed air exerted by the handpiece of the machine. Research has shown that this form of treatment helps to promote the growth of new tiny blood vessels by restarting the inflammation process in the treated areas. This is needed to promote healing and can also decrease pain in the area being treated.
Our Chartered Physiotherapists are happy to have an informed discussion with you regarding your condition and can advise you on the most appropriate treatment pathway.
