Physiotherapy is a non-invasive method to address problems in the discs, joints, nerves, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. It may also help relieve pain from sports injuries, and any related weakness or stiffness.

At Romford and Ilford Family Chiropractic, we complete a full assessment of your condition to create a unique care plan for your specific needs. We’re here to help you regain your pre-injury fitness level and strengthen your body to prevent future injuries.

How Does Physiotherapy Help?

  • Pre/post-operative rehabilitation
  • Sport injuries
  • Postural problems
  • Back and neck pain
  • Extremity pain
  • Muscle, ligament, and tendon problems
  • Sprains and soft tissue injuries
  • Balance and flexibility problems
  • Chronic fatigue and weakness
  • TMJ
  • Vertigo
  • Headaches and migraines

Working with you to ensure pain-free movement is one of our primary goals.

Therapies and Techniques

Your physiotherapist may use several therapies and modalities to help reduce your pain and restore function, such as

  • Mobilisation
  • Soft tissue massage
  • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation
  • Taping
  • Individual exercise programmes to strengthen and progress function
  • Cyriax approach—a physical therapy method focused on treating soft tissue lesions in the body. Proven to address conditions affecting tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bursa along the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spines of the body.

Chiropractic and Physiotherapy

Traditional chiropractic focuses on the alignment and function of the spine and pelvis, and the nervous system. Manual manipulation techniques are most often used to correct structural issues.

Adding physiotherapy to the care plan before chiropractic helps the adjustment go deeper and hold longer. After chiropractic care, it may help with any discomfort. In both cases, it’s clear that chiropractic and physiotherapy complement each other.

What to Expect

Before you come to the practice, we ask that you wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to allow us to easily see the skin, joints, and muscles around your injury. When you arrive, a new patient screening form will need to be completed.

Your physiotherapist, Mihai Albata, MCSP HCPC, has earned a Master of Science in Motor and Somato Functional Recovery- Rehabilitation in 2014, and a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy in 2010. He has also received training at the Society of Musculoskeletal Medicine.
