Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the health and well-being of individuals. Physiotherapists identify and maximise movement potential through health promotion, preventive healthcare, treatment and rehabilitation.

Physiotherapists help and treat people of all ages with physical problems caused by illness, accident or ageing. Their role in sport is vital, to return an exerciser to full fitness using the safest and quickest methods.


Spinal Problems

Back and neck pain are very common problems with most of us experiencing them some time in our life. Most spinal pain is a result of temporary damage to ligaments, muscles or discs and responds well to physiotherapy. Conditions treated include:

  • Prolapsed discs
  • Spinal degeneration
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Ligament strain
  • Muscle tension.


Joint Problems

Joint conditions can affect hips, knees, feet, shoulders, elbows or hands and respond very well to physiotherapy management. This can involve manual treatment to restore mobility, treatment to reduce pain or exercises to strengthen and improve function and balance. Whether the cause of the condition is a sports injury or ‘wear and tear’ we can help you to recover as quickly as is possible and will aim to restore you to your normal level of activity. Joint problems may present as:

  • Arthritis
  • Joint sprains or strains
  • Cartilage damage
  • Pain
  • Swelling or stiffness


Sports Injuries

Injuries sustained when training or taking part in sport can be very frustrating. Some of the conditions that we regularly treat are:

  • Dislocation
  • Muscle spasms
  • Muscle strains/tears
  • Ligament sprains
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Foot pain (metatarsalgia)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfers elbow
  • Biceps tendonitis
  • Groin strain
  • Sprained ankle
  • Achilles tendonitis


Work Related Injuries

These are often called repetitive strain injuries (RSI) or work-related upper limb disorder. Symptoms usually present as pain from muscles, nerves and tendons caused by repetitive movement and overuse. The condition mostly affects parts of the upper body, such as the forearm, elbow, wrist, hands, neck and shoulders, and may also cause stiffness and swelling. Some examples include:

  • Bursitis – inflammation and swelling of the fluid-filled sac near the joint of the knee, elbow or shoulder
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – pressure on the median nerve passing through the wrist
  • Tendonitis – inflammation of a tendon.


Post-Operative Rehabilitation

In medicine, surgical procedures are often used to achieve long-term success. At the Julia Heath Physiotherapy Clinic we believe that post-operative rehabilitation therapy is essential to restore your freedom of movement and help you towards a speedy recovery. This can be achieved in the on-site rehabilitation suite following orthopaedic surgery such as arthroscopic joint surgery, knee or hip replacements.



Physiotherapy after a fracture is a key stage of the rehabilitation process. It will enhance your recovery and ensure you continue to make significant improvement in range of movement, muscle strength and everyday function. Also, it will ensure that you return back to your normal activities with confidence and success.
