Spinal manipulation

This is mostly done for 'stiff' joints to improve movement and reduce pain. It should never be done when a nerve injury is also present as it can often make problems worse. Appropriately trained physios have the skills to do this as well as osteopaths or chiropractors, just on suitable clients and conditions.

An appropriate treatment plan and rehab programme within realistic timeframes ensures goals are achieved and quality of life improves.

Post fracture rehabilitation

When a bone breaks (medically termed as a fracture), a period of immobilsation, rest or reduced weight-bearing usually ensues, often with a cast or brace for support. When the bone is healed the surrounding joints are often stiff and muscles have weakened. Hands on treatment or 'Manual Therapy' along with an appropriate rehabilitation programme usually helps to encourage more normal movement, reduce pain and restore function.

Tailored stretching programmes

Many people these days lead a fairly sedentary lifestyle, often being part of the 'Sitting Revolution' slaving over a desk in an office. Evidence has shown sitting for too long has a detrimental effect on health (http://www.sciencealert.com/watch-is-sitting-too-much-killing-you) and physical inactivity being a greater predictor of life expectancy than other lifestyle related problems like obesity and alcohol abuse (https://youtu.be/aUaInS6HIGo). At Hogan & Mitchell we have extensive experience in helping clients return to activity and get fitter and stronger with realistic individual programmes.

Balance, dizziness and vestibular rehabilitation

Physiotherapy been shown to be extremely effective in improving balance regardless of the cause. We 'balance in the brain' using several body parts to give feedback and help including the eyes, ears and soft tissues. Often there is 'mismatch' between what these parts are telling the brain so we can feel dizzy or off balance. Expert diagnosis and rehabilitation is very important to improve symptoms and confidence.
