Rehabilitation aims to optimise patient function and well-being, to help integrate you back into lifestyle activities whether at home, work or leisure. Rehabilitation focuses on changes to functional disability and lifestyle restrictions based on your own goals and to regain function.
Rehabilitation can be used for recovery from injury or disease and also for the management of long-term conditions.
Rehabilitation should start as soon as possible to speed recovery.
Injections can be administered on site. Common areas for injection are the shoulder, frozen shoulder or rotator cuff tendonitis, tennis elbow, bursitis, osteoarthritis, plantar fascitis, tenosynovitis.
Manipulation is a short, high velocity movement of a joint often associated with a ‘click’ or a ‘pop’ sensation. It can relieve stiffness and unlock joints that could be locked due to injury and subsequent spasm. This technique is only used with your consent .Manipulation can result in many benefits.

Acupuncture is an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation. Physiotherapists base their treatments on scientific research and clinical evidence that Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin and serotonin. These chemicals assist the body's healing processes and offer pain relief.
AACP members combine TCM principles with scientific evidence as a means of reducing pain and promoting healing, always with the aim of enhancing physiotherapy treatments such as exercise and rehabilitation techniques to promote recovery and improve quality of life.
Chronic, persistent or long-term pain is pain continuing beyond 3 months or after healing is complete.
The aims when working with chronic pain are to achieve healthy levels of activity and self- management. Clinical and cost-effectiveness evidence supports using a cognitive behavioural approach addressing both physical limitations and your beliefs about, and understanding of, their condition.
People with multiple health issues or whose pain is causing significant physical, psychological or social problems may require management by a multidisciplinary pain service.
