Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function to as near normal as possible when someone is affected by injury, illness or by developmental or other disability. This may be the definition of physiotherapy but what is it really? Here at West Point we assess your injury by looking at what causes your pain and restriction. We will explain your injury to you and then use evidence based, tried and tested techniques to resolve it.
Conditions We Treat
At the practice we are able to treat the following conditions:
- Sports Injuries
- Repetitive Strain Injuries
- Back & Neck Pain
- Joint & Muscle problems

- Work Related Upper Limb disorders
In addition we can provide:

How We Treat
The initial assessment will be completed and you will be treated with manual techniques to alleviate pain, release muscle tension and free the joint stiffness.
Here at West Point Practice we are not only looking to alleviate your symptoms we want to know why you've got those symptoms. By assessing the injury and then the surrounding joints, stability and your sports technique or daily living habits it will enable us to establish the route cause of your injury. Treatment may not be purely carried out within the clinic. For example, your work station may turn out to be the route cause of your problem. It may be that it is designed for you to fit it but not for it to fit you. We can offer a thorough onsite work station assessment where we can advise on the set up, your posture and any additional equipment you may require. By addressing all these factor this will in turn prevent recurrent injury.
