What are the benefits of Physiotherapy?
All our treatments are chosen to suit the individual, but in most cases our aim is to deal with the effects of muscular dystrophy, which is muscle weakness and wasting, and the knock-on effects of these.
The essential aims of treatment:
- Maintain flexibility.
- Maintain joint range.
- Make the best use of available muscle power.
We can also give appropriate treatment and advice for musculoskeletal problems including:
Acute minor injuries, such as strains and sprains.Chronic postural neck and back pain.We also look for improvements in "Function", such as walking, dressing, washing and fine hand movements.
