Neck Pain Glasgow , Neck Pain Stirling

Sports Therapy Scotland therapists go through a regimen of training qualifying them to safely perform certain rehabilitative treatments with goals of reducing pain and regaining function. Much of their work also involves education of the patient. Their therapies involve successive movements, each building upon the other.

Often this involves a program combining manual technique and also graded exercises to increase the range of motion and muscle ability, using weights and other devices.

Therapy can take place in an outpatient clinic, the patient's home, a hospital, the workplace, a wound center, a skilled nursing facility, or rehab center. Very often, rehab centers look like mini-gymnasiums, only with specialized equipment calibrated to measure progress.

altSports Therapy Scotland use various tests and measures to identify the causes of difficulties and to track progress of treatment, we use physical methods, modalities, and education to alleviate pain and regain function." These include forms of spinal mobilisation, heat, cold, and to help alleviate pain, decrease swelling, increase strength, and promote healing.

Methods include therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, functional training, and use of assistive devices and adaptive equipment to increase strength, range of motion, endurance, wound healing, and functional independence. Another goal is to decrease pain, swelling, and muscle spasms.

Sports Therapy Scotland will first do a comprehensive examination and assessment, Education is a large part of treatment - showing and explaining to the patients what is wrong to help them better manage their neck and/or back.
