Physiotherapy Services

At Pimlico Physiotherapy we have worked hard to gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of a wide variety of musculoskeletal pains and injuries. We are not specialists in any one area but rather deep generalists, offering a core expertise on which related fields of knowledge are layered through continuous learning. Conditions commonly treated include:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Ligament and tendon problems
  • Muscular problems
  • Headaches
  • Post-operative rehabilitation (getting you fit after surgery)
  • Arthritic conditions

Specialist pain service

We also offer a persistent pain service, providing help for those people for whom no simple explanation for their pain can be given, for whom treatment to date has been unsuccessful or for those who have been told there is nothing more that can be done. We offer a number of proven and some new therapies that offer hope. These include:

  • Pain education the key to conquering pain is to first understand it. Put simply, know pain or no gain
  • Passive activation a fancy way to explain the powerful effects that joint movement and massage can achieve if the body is set up to respond well
  • TENS electrical stimulation best known for its use during childbirth but which can contribute useful pain relief
  • Graded exposure slowly bit by bit exposing yourself in a controlled and measured way to movements/activities that are painful to begin with but become more and more comfortable
  • Pacing taking exercise and activities from a small start to an agreed level. Not unlike marathon training, where the start is small but with determination, understanding and support, goals can be achieved
  • Relaxation/meditation not just whale music and cosmic harmonies, but a scientific way to de-sensitise your brain and get it to forget the pain tune
  • Brain training making use of current research that finds that by training your senses and your bodies ability to move we can reduce pain
