Conditions We Treat

Select a part of the body to see details of how we can help.

Knee

The knee is particularly vulnerable to both acute injury and arthritis because of its load-bearing role and functional requirements. The use of our revolutionary technology such as the AlterG treadmill can decrease impact at the knee joint, reduce pain and restore gait mechanics for a variety of knee conditions. The AlterG’s progressive loading helps speed recovery for knee injuries and return users to the activities they love.

We help both professional and amateur sportsmen and women to return to fitness as soon as possible. Patients attend our physiotherapy clinics from a wide range of disciplines, including football, skiing, rugby, and track and field athletics. We also treat non-sportsmen and women, and all of our patients receive the same high level of care from our specialists.

Common Conditions

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Meniscus Cartilage Injuries
  • Ligament Tears and Injury, such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
  • Tendon Injuries
  • Fracture

Outcome Measures

Foot & Ankle

The foot is the foundation of the body whether standing and walking, so pain or injury to the foot can lead to problems all the way up the kinetic chain to the knees, hips and even spine. Our technological advancements, such as the AlterG’s Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology, can help decrease or eliminate pain and prevent compensatory motions, by precisely reducing weight through the foot, in standing and at heel strike. The ability to encourage and maintain these normal mechanics makes the AlterG the perfect tool for gait training at any level.

Likewise, the ankle is one of the most commonly injured joints by athletes and non-athletes alike, with ankle problems affecting the ability to stand and walk without pain. Using the AlterG’s precise partial weight bearing in rehab can help make standing activities more comfortable for these patients, while protecting healing tissue. Earlier incorporation of closed-chain activities allows patients to restore strength and proprioception more quickly, enabling them to return to a normal gait and running pattern sooner.

Common Conditions

  • Achilles Tendon Pain, Rupture & Tendinopathies
  • Ankle Sprains & Instability
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bunions
  • Fractures
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Heel Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Outcome Measures

Hip & Groin

One of the largest and strongest joints in the body and a key component in balance; problems at the hip can significantly impact static and dynamic stability and posture. Injuries to some of the largest bones and muscles in the body, like the femur, quads, and hamstrings, can seriously impact function and quality of life. Our team is highly skilled in the management of both traumatic and degenerative conditions of the hip, including total hip replacements. We also have extensive expertise in adductor-related groin pain and sports hernia management.

By using AlterG’s exclusive progressive loading technology, pain can be reduced and strength improved, so the hip can play its primary role of supporting the body’s weight and providing a stable foundation for movement.

Common Conditions

  • Femoroacetabular Impingement
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Dysplasia
  • Fracture
  • Trochanteric Bursitis
  • Labral Tears
  • Adductor Injuries

Outcome Measures

Spine

Lower back pain is one of the most common conditions experienced by people and almost everyone, at some point, will have it interfere with work or play. One of the major contributors to this problem is the sedentary nature of most jobs and careers in our age of technology.

The ability to decrease ground impact forces walking and running via the use of our NASA technology AlterG can help encourage activity while minimising stress to the spine. The result is a healthier and stronger back, allowing for a happier, pain-free lifestyle.

Conditions

  • Back Pain
  • Fractures & Dislocations
  • Neck Pain & Sprains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Prolapsed & Herniated Discs
  • Spinal Instability
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Spondylolysis & Spondylolisthesis
  • Whiplash

Outcome Measures

Shoulder

Shoulder injuries can be either acute or chronic depending on when they are diagnosed and how long the pain/disability has affected a patient. An acute shoulder injury occurs suddenly, either through direct impact, overstretching a muscle, tendon or ligament, overusing a muscle or tendon or twisting of the shoulder joint.

Common Conditions

  • Fractures
  • Tendon Injuries (Rotator Cuff Tears and Frozen Shoulder)
  • Ligament Injuries (Acromioclavicular Joint Separation)
  • Shoulder Dislocation
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Shoulder Instability

Hand, Wrist & Elbow

Hand and wrist injuries impact our everyday routines. With particular expertise in the management of scaphoid fractures and tendon injuries, our aim is to help you return to your usual activities as quickly as possible using targeted rehabilitation programmes.

The elbow is a joint that is unforgiving and uncompromising, which means that its treatment requires great care and expertise. Elbow conditions can be painful, cause stiffness, and lead to long-term problems including osteoarthritis.

Common Conditions

  • Dupuytren’s Contracture
  • Fractures
  • Nerve Injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Ligament and Tendon Injuries
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Dislocation and Subluxation
  • Bursitis

Pain Management

Our pain management strategy treats an extensive range of musculoskeletal pathologies, including sciatica, brachialgia and stingers, facet joint pain, mechanical spinal pain, neuropathic pain and complex regional pain syndromes.

The pain programme assesses sports nerve injuries and coordinates a rehabilitation process, often working with other disciplines to achieve the optimal outcome.

Our technological advancements allow us to treat painful injuries effectively and efficiently, allowing for pain-free rehabilitation to take place.
