Here in the Mayo Medical Centre we have many modalities for treating MSK problems. Here are a list of the most commonly applied treatments:
• Education & advice
This is considered the most important part of any treatment in our clinic. This includes giving advice on the dos and don’t to help your problem as well how long the problem may take to get better.
• Joint manipulation & mobilisation
This is a hands-on treatment applied to specific joints which maybe injured or stiff and causing problems for other joints elsewhere. It can also effect the way how certain muscles behave and cause pain.
• Soft tissue techniques
Soft tissue techniques include deep dry needling, trigger point therapy, hold relax techniques, positional release techniques, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation techniques. All of these techniques can be used to bring relief to soft tissue which are causing pain and restriction to movement.
This is tailored to your individual needs and the stage you are at in your recovery.
The above list is only a sample and your treatment programme is designed with your needs in mind and if you are unsure or not keen on any of the treatments offered please discuss this with your physiotherapist.
