NB Physio was established to share our passions, expertise and know-how for everyone. We are passionate about getting you back to what you love doing and helping you achieve your ambitions, no matter how big or small they may be.
We are a team of Physiotherapists who specialise in the assessment and diagnosis of musculoskeletal conditions. Following your assessment, our experienced physiotherapist will discuss with you and then select an appropriate treatment and rehabilitation plan based upon their expert clinical judgement. With advanced skills in managing injuries which affect muscles, joints and soft tissue our aim will be to optimise healing and speed up your recovery.
Sports massage can offer many benefits to our patients with acute or chronic pain, injury, or muscle imbalance. We utilise a variety of techniques to manipulate superficial and deep muscle tissue within the body. The massage techniques selected by your therapist will depend on your intended outcome of treatment and can provide many benefits including pain relief, relaxation, reduce muscle imbalance, and promote muscle tissue recovery post injury. Massage therapy may also provide psychological benefits reducing stress and anxiety.
Injury Prevention Programmes:
Personal injury programmes are paramount to all successful treatment and rehabilitation programmes. All treatment plans need to be specific as each individual will present differently following injury. Each individual will also respond differently to a chosen treatment or exercise programme. From initial assessment, plans will be discussed and formulated under the guidelines of SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timed). Following this structure will mean treatment and rehabilitation plans can be tailored to the specific needs of the patient, leading to either a speedier return to work (job specific) or return to play (sport specific).
One of the specialist treatment modalities we are able to offer is acupuncture. Following assessment and discussion, your physiotherapist may offer you a course of acupuncture to treat a musculoskeletal problem such as chronic pain, joint pain, migraines or recurrent headaches. Acupuncture is based on the theory that fine needles inserted into the skin stimulate sensory nerves and result in the release of natural pain-relieving endorphins.
ViMove2 is now available at NB Physiotherapy to manage your injury risk and guide rehabilitation. Pain, aches and injuries keep you away from what you want to do. We want to keep you safe, optimise your performance and help you recover faster. To do that, we need to tailor a treatment plan that’s unique to you. Now we have a great tool that does just that. It’s called ViMove2 and it uses revolutionary wireless wearable sensors to objectively measure exactly how you move. In doing so, ViMove2 provides our team with visual, objective, easily interpreted data to improve your assessments, choose and manage treatment options designed just for you, and document your therapy progress.
