Our clinicians have a variety of treatment techniques at their disposal to relieve pain, regain range of movement, restore muscle strength and return patients to normal, pain-free day-to-day life.
Physiotherapy is entirely focused on helping people affected by injury, illness or disability, using the careful application of movement, manual therapy, education and advice.
We believe that physiotherapy should be more than just treatment. We teach you about your injury or condition to explain why it has occurred and how best you can avoid it being repeated in the future.
Physiotherapy works for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
Here at Summit we:
- Aim to educate you about looking after your body and muscles, meaning you won't need to keep coming back - we will teach you about your injury or condition, explaining why it happened and how you can prevent a reoccurrence.
- Understand our clients' reservations and requirements to make sure they're relaxed and comfortable during their visit.
- Combine manual therapy techniques with exercise rehabilitation to get you moving better and more efficiently.
- Look at each patient individually and not just treat the injury, but we take into account the whole body and the person.
- We also take into account the lifestyle and history of each patient and work with them to achieve there desired outcomes.
There are many different specialist areas of physiotherapy. All Summit clinicians are specialists in musculoskeletal and sports injuries (i.e. muscles, bones, joints and other soft tissues), orthopaedics, post-operative and functional rehabilitation; general aches and pains; and injury prevention.
What to expect from Summit
Our aim here at Summit is to keep our clients relaxed, and for them to enjoy their time with us. Our staff are friendly and more than happy to answer any questions you may have on your condition and treatment.
Each new client/condition will have an initial consultation where one of our skilled clinicians will take a detailed and confidential history and physical assessment. Then, using Summit's education board, we will explain why the condition has occurred, allowing you to properly understand the cause of your pain/problem.
From here a relevant, evidence-based and up-to-date treatment plan can be put into action.
You will be given a home exercise programme (HEP) at the end of the session, in conjunction with your treatment. Not only will this maximise the benefits of the treatment and, it will allow you to self-manage your symptoms where possible.
Summit also promotes positive lifestyle behaviours by teaching individuals to self-manage their condition, which improves confidence, sense of wellbeing and quality of life.
With these new acquired skills, we can give you a long-term solution so you can prevent reoccurrence of your condition and return to activity with confidence.
Summit physiotherapy is committed to its clients and expects commitment from them in return. All of our clients must realise that their rehabilitation and recovery requires a team effort.
Above all, we are here to help you get better and give you the confidence to embrace the treatment. A happy client means a quicker recovery, and that's what we provide here at Summit.
