Expert & effective treatment of your aches, pains & injuries
The human body is an amazing piece of engineering, which is capable of wonderful things. But, occasionally it stops functioning at its best. Forest Hill in Cheshire's physiotherapists can help to restore your full potential.
Whether you struggle with everyday tasks, are recovering from injury or surgery, or are limited in your sporting/athletic endeavours (from hobby sports to a professional level), our physiotherapists can assess and identify the cause of your problems to provide the most effective treatment solutions for your particular issues.
Combination Physiotherapy for Optimum Outcome
Our highly-qualified and experienced physiotherapists specialise in the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction and are committed to continued professional development. As a result, the physiotherapy provided at Forest Hill Practice is based on on current best evidence of effectiveness, to ensure the optimum outcome for our patients. Physiotherapy aims to alleviate symptoms, pain and discomfort by identifying the cause and restoring the proper functioning of the body.
Treatment options include a wide range of manual physiotherapy to mobilise joints and the soft tissues (stretching, massage, manipulation), exercise programmes and electrotherapy techniques, tailored to your specific condition(s).
Treating the Cause Not Just Symptoms
Before you receive any treatment or advice, patients undergo considered clinical assessment by our physiotherapists in order to identify the cause of problems and symptoms — which may be due to surgery, injury or incidious onset — so that the most suitable treatment is provided. This asessment involves discussing your condition, symptoms, pain or discomfort and a thorough examination of the affected area in order to identify the problem(s). From there, yourself and the physiotherapist will decide the most appropriate way to progress so that a treatment programme tailored to suit your needs can be formulated.
It is vital for physiotherapists to find the root cause of your condition, which is why our team of physiotherapists at Forest Hill are dedicated to continual training and adopt a progressive approach. Just treating the current symptoms is useless if the problem is going to recur once treatment stops, for example, if the symptoms are due to an old injury, postural issues, poor muscle control or, in extremely rare circumstances, serious pathology such as a tumour, fracture, etc.
As specialists in their field, Forest Hill's physiotherapist will not simply steam ahead with treatment if further investigation is required, which is why occasionally, if they feel it is warranted after examination, our physiotherapists may feel that further investigations are required first. This could involve MRI scans, X-rays, ultrasound scans, etc. If this is the case, we can liaise with your GP and request these to be done, so that you receive the right diagnosis and treatment.
At Forest Hill physiotherapy our ethos is to not only alleviate your symptoms, but to provide long-lasting improvement of your consition through a wide variety of techniques.
All of our physiotherapists are members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and of the Health Professions Council.
Fiona Chesworth is a member of the Manipulative Association of Chartered Physiotherapy (MACP), which recognises a standard of excellence in neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy.
