  2. How do leading UK therapists motivate their patients to see through their course of treatment?

    RESULTS!

     

    OK, that’s what therapy’s all about!  But is our definition of results in line with our clients definition? Could we enumerate progress easier?

     

    It was back in 400 BC when early physicians such as Hippocrates and Galen began advocating manual therapy techniques, massage, and hydrotherapy for treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.  The earliest documented origins of actual physiotherapy as a specialism date back to Per Henrik Ling who founded the Royal Central Institute of Gymnastics for massage, manipulation, and exercise. In 1887, PTs were given official registration by Sweden’s National Board of Health and Welfare. Other countries soon

  3. What will Shockwave do for my clinic?

    Shockwave is the ideal treatment method for chronic and complex musculoskeletal conditions.

    It is an advanced, non-invasive and highly effective treatment method which enhances blood circulation and accelerates the healing process. Treatment results in pain reduction, regeneration of affected tissue and breakdown of calcification and fibrosis.

  4. Which shockwave unit do I need for my clinic?

    Gymna Shockmaster 500

     

    Implementing radial shockwave in your clinic can be a daunting step in taking your business forward.  It is a large investment, and there are a lot of units available at different price points.  It is important to make sure you get the right unit for your clinic as this is a great step which can take you and your clinic to the next level.

     

    The good news is that providing the unit is ballistic / pneumatic (uses compressed air to fire the projectile) and can deliver at least 4 bars of pressure then it will be effective on MSK treatments.  The reason for stating this is that clinical evidence is very supportive of ballistic shockwave as opposed to electromagnetic.  What differentiates and defines the price

  6. Cold Compression Therapy - Faster, Better And More Sustained Recovery

     

    We’ve all experienced injuries at one point or another and they can occur in a multitude of different places: the gym, the track, out on the field and even at home! Cold Compression Therapy is an ideal and innovative way to help you heal faster and more efficiently than some long traditional techniques. The practice is seeing a huge increase in use amongst athletes and sports physicians alike.

    When cold temperatures are combined with either dynamic or static compression - most commonly achieved with “Wraps” such as our Eureka Physiocare Cold Compression Therapy Shoulder Wrap - we witness a reduction in pain and swelling in any type of injury that causes swelling and inflammation. Be that muscle tears, sprains or strains. Correctly restricting the blood flow to the injured area by the right amount narrows the blood vessels and reduces pain without restricting flow too m

  9. UK ‘Super-Deduction’ Tax Relief is a Welcome Boost to Physiotherapy Clinics

    The UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak delivered his budget on 3rd March where he announced his new ‘super-deduction’ capital allowances break.

    A huge incentive to invest
    A major part of this is the new ‘super-deduction’ capital allowances break. Applying to capital expenditure incurred between 1st April 2021 and up to and including 31st March 2023, eligible businesses can claim 130% capital allowances for the first year on qualifying capital equipment purchases. Or, in the Government’s own words, ‘for every pound a company invests, their taxes are cut by up to 25p’.

    What’s covered?
    The super-deduction applies to capital equipment purchases, but for the purpose of claiming capital allowances, most tangible equipment assets within a business do fall within the plant and machinery category. Perhaps the most clear-

  10. How foot orthotics can support the work of a physiotherapist.

    Foot orthotic therapy is an extremely useful and conservative approach to treatment of lower limb biomechanical dysfunction. Foot orthotics help to regain “neutral position” and restore balance.

    In the past foot, orthoses were believed to correct mechanical abnormalities such as “over-pronated foot” but now they are giving therapeutic benefits by achieving internal kinetic changes. It also helps to reduce pain and improve function; these are advised in those patients who respond positively to the anti-pronation technique. Recent research has shown the comparison of wearing foot orthosis vs physiotherapy treatment exercises alone the results were significant, and function of the foot was restored. Unilateral plantar fasciopathy was recovered in 12 weeks.

    In most cases, your body needs two to four weeks to become accustomed to any type of orthotics. That means you should plan to wear
