Common Injuries Our Physiotherapists Treat

Our physiotherapy services in Sevenoaks are designed to help you recover from injuries and manage chronic pain. With over 120,000 people living in Sevenoaks District and over 28,000 in Sevenoaks Town, there is a high local need for rehabilitation and support following a sports injury work-related injury or surgery. Each year, our NHS carries out over 5000 surgical operations for the Sevenoaks population, however, unfortunately not everyone is able to access physiotherapy rehabilitation as quickly as they need to. We are able to help with a wide variety of conditions including, but certainly not limited to:

Physiotherapy can help you regain your strength, flexibility, and function after an operation by reducing pain, inflammation, and swelling. It can also help to prevent the formation of scar tissue, which can lead to reduced range of motion. Our physiotherapists can help you regain your confidence and improve your overall well-being after surgery.

Our physiotherapists have extensive experience in the prevention and treatment of sports injuries. Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, we can help you recover from sprains, strains, and overuse injuries. Our sports physios can help you prevent injuries by assessing your biomechanics and identifying areas of weakness or imbalance. Additionally, sports physiotherapy can help improve your performance by addressing muscle imbalances, increasing your power, and optimising your movement patterns. If you are a member of one of Sevenoak’s many local sports clubs and looking for a sports physio, please don’t hesitate to get in contact

When a ligament in the ankle joint has been damaged, ruptured or stretched to an unnatural degree we call that an ankle sprain. Ankle sprains may occur during sports such as football or volleyball, or they may be the result of stepping awkwardly and turning an ankle, or by tripping. Ankle sprains, while fairly common, are vexing injuries that can linger for a long time and have a detrimental effect on a person’s overall quality of life. Thankfully, physiotherapy can help.

Injuries to the tendons (the fibrous tissues that connect muscles to bones) which cause inflammation are typically referred to as tendonitis. Tendonitis can develop for several reasons although the most common are overuse and trauma. Symptoms of tendonitis include pain and swelling, weakness in the affected area and a decreased range of motion.

A muscle strain may be the result of a single traumatic event, or it may occur because of chronic overuse. These injuries – sometimes referred to as pulled muscles – vary in their severity and often occur in the legs, shoulders, neck and back. Although they can, in theory, occur in virtually any muscle.

Carpal tunnel injuries have become commonplace in recent years mostly due to the repetitive nature of working on a computer, and the stress that puts on the wrist. Due to overuse the carpal tunnel can become compressed which causes irritation, inflammation, pain and stiffness.

No matter if you are young or old your knees take a terrible pounding every day. As a result, it is common for people to develop knee pain that can limit their mobility. Knee pain can also result from injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage in the knee joint. Arthritis and gout are also known to produce chronic knee pain.

When the shoulder capsule (the ligament that envelopes the shoulder joint) grasps the joint too tightly the shoulder can stiffen up, in some cases completely. Frozen shoulder is a progressive condition which, if not treated, can become permanent.

The lower body is served by a cluster of nerves known collectively as the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve runs from the buttock down through the thigh and lower leg. Sometimes elements of the sciatic nerve come into contact with bones or joints and become inflamed, causing a cascade of pain often starting in the buttock and running down through the leg.

Physiotherapy Treatment FAQ

The number of sessions needed will vary depending on the individual and their condition. Some conditions may require a few sessions, while others may require ongoing treatment. Your physiotherapist will be able to give you an estimate of the number of sessions you may need after your initial assessment.

We have four separate treatment rooms in our Sevenoaks Clinic and multiple practitioner across different disciplines. Please call or check availability online for specific dates, however we will often be able to see you for a same day physio appointment in Sevenoaks

Most of the time, you can see a physiotherapist without your doctor’s prescription. Nevertheless, some health insurance plans might demand one. Before making an appointment, it is best to consult with your healthcare professional. If you’re coming from the workplace or planning to file a claim for compensation for an injury sustained while participating in physical activity, you might also need a referral.

During a physiotherapy session, a physiotherapist will assess your condition, and then develop a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. This may include manual therapy, exercises, modalities, and education on how to prevent future injuries. The physiotherapist will work with you to ensure you understand your condition and the treatment plan, and will make adjustments as needed to ensure you are getting the most benefit from your physiotherapy sessions.

Physiotherapy is effective for a variety of conditions, such as chronic back pain, neck and shoulder issues, post-operative rehabilitation, and stroke rehabilitation, physiotherapy has shown to be an incredibly effective form of treatment. With the right physiotherapist, you can anticipate receiving high-quality care that is individualized for your needs and can aid in reducing pain, enhancing mobility and function, and fostering general well-being.

Physiotherapy should not be painful. However, because it is often necessary to engage the injury or the affected area it is possible that you may feel some discomfort during a physiotherapy session. That said, the amount of discomfort you feel should never be excessive in nature. If it is, please inform your physiotherapist so they can make appropriate adjustments before continuing.

In some cases, the difference is merely one of terminology. For instance, what people in the UK commonly call physiotherapy is generally referred to in the US as physical therapy. But that does not mean the two words are always interchangeable. There are subtle differences between the two that need to be acknowledged and respected.

 

Physiotherapy, for instance, tends to take a more hands-on approach whereby the physiotherapist focuses on techniques such as fascial and soft tissue releases, massage and stretching. While physical therapy often adopts a more exercise-based approach whereby the physical therapist teaches the patient various exercises that can be used to rebuild muscle strength, balance, coordination and the like.

That depends. In some instances, the only realistic option is to receive physiotherapy at home, simply because the patient is unable to travel to the physiotherapy centre. This is often the case when the patient has suffered a stroke and has balanced-related issues or even partial paralysis. At home physiotherapy is also a good choice for those who are pressed for time, as it saves them from having to travel to and from the physiotherapy centre. The bottom line is that it depends on the patient, their condition and other circumstances.
