Rehab exercise is aimed at strengthening, restoring function and decreasing pain after an injury/illness or surgery. Surgeons will often have specific exercise guidelines which they want you to follow after surgery. Your physio will guide and monitor your exercise programmes

Manual Therapy 

‘Hands-on’ or manual physiotherapy combined with exercise is the mainstay of our treatment at EBR Physio.  Manual physio treatment includes joint mobilisation to improve range of movement and relieve pain.   Soft tissue massage is also used to relieve tension.

Prehab Exercise

Prehab exercise is an exercise programme used for strengthening pre-surgery which is aimed at speeding recovery time and optimising outcomes.   It is becoming increasingly common practice for surgeons to refer patients for prehab to strengthen relevant muscles and joints before their surgery. 

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a treatment technique using acupuncture needles to target a trigger point to help alleviate pain, reduce spasm and return normal movement.
