Physiotherapy

SquareOne staff strive to provide the very best in Physiotherapy care using the most up to date Sports Medicine and Physiotherapy research available.

SquareOne Physiotherapists are experts in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal problems. Our emphasis is on the correction of movement dysfunction which can be the cause of problems such as spinal pain, sports injuries or work related musculoskeletal problems. Taking a detailed history and establishing an accurate diagnosis to identify the cause of your symptoms is our initial priority. We will then prescribe a treatment program that may include evidence based methods such as:

  • hands on manual therapy (mobilisation, manipulation)
  • soft tissue release techniques
  • acupuncture/dry needling
  • taping
  • real time ultrasound (to see your muscles)
  • corrective exercise
  • rehabilitation programs
  • muscle energy techniques
  • ergonomic and postural advice
  • functional strengthening programs

With a wealth of experience and expertise in physiotherapy and sports injury management,

we can assist with:

 Real Time Ultrasound

SquareOne Physio’s use Real Time Ultrasound (RTUS) as an assessment and teaching tool for core muscle retraining. Research has shown that activation of the deep lumbar stabilising muscles (transverses abdominis, multifidus and pelvic floor) is reduced in patients with a history of chronic lumbo-pelvic musculoskeletal dysfunction. Reactivation and strengthening of the deep stabilising muscles has been shown to result in reduced levels of pain and improved function compared to non-specific conventional abdominal strengthening exercises in patients with chronic lumbar spine dysfunction.

RTUS is a teaching tool that can be used in patients with conditions such as degenerative disc disease, facet joint arthritis, spondylolisthesis, post abdominal surgery, hip and pelvic pain, post pregnancy low back pain and non-specific low back pain related to motor control abnormalities. It allows patients to see their muscles on a screen as they learn to activate them and thus provides invaluable feedback for rehabilitation and motor relearning of these previously hard to visualise muscle groups. We also use Real Time Ultrasound as a retraining tool for certain hip and shoulder joint injuries.

  • What do Womens Health Physio's do postnatally?
  • Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in a womans life. It is also one of most physically strenuous, with numerous potential short and long term consequences for both body and mind. 

  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Pessaries
  • What are they? And who are they for?
     
    Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) is a very common condition in women, and can result in leaking from the bladder or bowel, a feeling of heaviness or bulging in the vagina, or even lower back pain. POP can vary significantly in its severity, the organ involved and the cause. Mild POP may be completely symptom free, however to stop the POP progressing and worsening women should be seen by a Women’s Health Physiotherapist for lifestyle advice, strengthening exercises where appropriate and possibly the use of a pessary to support the POP. 
     
    Pessaries are a silicone or plastic device that can be inserted into the vagina to support the pelvic organs. If there is a lack of support for your pelvic organs – usually due to muscle weakness, fascial (ligament) damage, or a recent vaginal birth, there is a risk of developing or worsening a Pelvic Organ Prolapse – POP. 
     
    In the past, pessaries have almost exclusivly been used in the older female population – mainly post menopausally to manage a current POP if surgery was not wanted or appropriate. However, recently pessaries are being used more and more in the younger female population, and in particular early post natal women. We often use pessaries to support a mild POP while the body heals and recovers post pregnancy and birth, or prophylactically for women who want to return to high impact exercise or running before their pelvic floor and fascia are ready. The positive effects from exercise on your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing are vast and very well known, however many women who have a POP are told that they can’t do a particular exercise anymore. The use of a pessary can give many women the required support to allow a safe return to high impact exercise, or even just symptomatic relief so that they don’t notice the POP.
  • The key to nailing your New Year goals.
  • As our New Year ticks over, it’s always a time to reflect on the year that’s been and of course set new goals for the year to come.
    Often these goals involve health and fitness and with this sudden increase in exercise, we often see an increase in certain types of injuries within the clinic.

  • Tech injuries: the world’s next health scare
    Our laptops, tablets and mobile phones have become extensions of our limbs, and new, previously-unseen health problems are on the rise.
    Holiday time often means more screen time for kids and also checking emails on phone etc. We are seeing more and more people as a result of the technologically driven world we live in today. Whilst this world is all about instantaneous gratification where everything is done in a click of a button, it’s time we thought about the effects that will be felt further down the line.

     

     

  • We recommend women have a pelvic floor assessment prior to giving birth. Find out why below....
  • For many women it is not until the child bearing years that they have even heard of the pelvic floor, let alone given it much attention. 
     
    Historically the focus for the pelvic floor has always been based around strengthening, however  just like any other muscle in the body the pelvic floor has the potential to a to also become excessively tight (hypertonic) and this can be incredibly problematic for some women. Clinically, we are now seeing an increase in the number of women presenting with hypertonic pelvic floors and the reasons for this seem to be multifactorial in nature mainly based around lifestyle and behavior choices. Factors such as high level participation in exercise can encourage over activation of the pelvic floor, and constipation from poor dietary choices can lead to chronic straining and a pelvic floor that is always in spasm. The impact of today’s fast paced lifestyle has also lead to a pelvic floor that is constantly ‘switched on’ as a result of a lack of relaxation, diaphragmatic breathing and high anxiety and stress levels.
     
    To understand why it is so important to have it checked prior to birth, first we need to understand what it is and what it actually does…..
