What you can expect

Your first appointment consists of an initial assessment and treatment. During which details will be taken including your contact details, past medical history, any medication currently being taken and a subjective history of your existing condition.

We will then move onto the Objective assessment in which you may be asked to remove your shirt or put on a pair of shorts depending on where your injury is. We will note your range of movement, anything which reproduces your pain and perform ‘special testing’ for specific structures e.g. ligaments, cartilage etc.

Following this assessment we will be able to identify what is causing your pain and can progress with treatment. This can involve a range of techniques from manual e.g. mobilisation, manipulation, massage, traction etc, to electrotherapy e.g. Ultrasound to self-treatment e.g frictions, exercise, foam rolling and may include taping/strapping. We also have access to acupuncture, Video Gait Analysis and Clinical Pilates all of which may be involved in your rehabilitation.

Our approach to treatment is very ‘hands on’ we feel strengthening and stretching  is best performed by the patient in their homes and the time in clinic should be utilised with more manual treatment methods to ensure the fastest possible recovery.

We treat all ages from 4 years to 104 years and all musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

What our patients say

Finely Tuned Physiotherapy offers everything you need in a sports physio. When you visit them you know they won’t just focus on the injury in front of them by giving you a rub, a pill and telling you to rest until it is better. Rather they will ensure they identify what you were doing so they can understand how the injury could have occurred. This enables them to treat the injury appropriately to allow you to return to your sport at the earliest opportunity. Finely Tuned Physiotherapy understands sportsmen and how important their sport is to them and will do everything they can to get you back there, sport is very much part of their rehabilitation plans

I struggled for many years with ITB which caused pain when running any further than 10 miles. Had been to many different physio’s who helped to treat the immediate cause of pain – but Finely Tuned Physiotherapy took the time to properly evaluate the root cause and following a successful course of treatment and preventative measures my ITB is now under control – so much so that I can now run marathons and complete Ironman distance races! If only Finely Tuned Physiotherapy could make me run a little faster!

Gemma helped resolve a herniated disc/back problem that had caused me huge discomfort for about 18 months. Instead of doing as the Chiropractor and Osteopaths had and just focused upon ‘clicking’ my back, Gemma quickly re-assessed things and as a result found that my back pain was actually an after effect of very tight hamstrings. As a result, once Gemma had been worked on these (don’t expect this not to hurt!!) my back gradually returned to normal. As a result, from barely sleeping at night and constantly worrying that my back would ‘go’ I have now returned to playing competitive football and golf. Thanks Gemma, you are truly a star. I have since returned to have further injuries rectified as a result of playing football again!! It’s a scam I tell you… I would wholeheartedly recommend Gemma to anyone with any injury.
