Orthopaedic Medicine

Orthopaedic Medicine covers a multitude of problems including soft tissue injuries, fractures, dislocations, subluxations, joint problems and surgical procedures which invariably necessitate some immobilisation. Even during relatively short periods, it is incredibly easy for joints to become stiff as a result of the restriction to their range of motion. Muscle groups can also weaken and waste due to relative inactivity.

Personalised Treatment and Care
Our clinicians' role is to help restore the maximum range of motion and muscle power to the patient as quickly as possible, whilst maintaining independence and functional ability throughout the recuperation period.

Orthopaedic Medicine

First4physio places a strong emphasis on rehabilitative exercises during the treatment programme. You will be asked to perform specific exercises that help to maintain and/or improve the flexibility of joints and strengthen protective muscle groups and perform a regular regime of home exercises yourself. Acupuncture or electrotherapy may be used in conjunction with more physical techniques and exercises to assist with the relief of pain/swelling and to promote soft tissue healing.

Our Orthopedic Treatment Process

The '6D' philosophy is integral to first4physio's clinical pathway and is a key principle
