Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy deals with human movement and helps you maximise your potential. It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical wellbeing, taking into account your individual health status. It is a science-based profession, committed to applying, evaluating and reviewing the evidence that underpins and informs its practice and delivery.

What Physiotherapists can help with

Physiotherapists can treat a diverse range of problems and not just sports injuries, ranging from:

  • Over use/repetitive strain injuries,
  • Sports Injuries,
  • Bone fractures,
  • Rehabilitation following surgery,
  • Preventative advice in order to avoid injury in the future,
  • Building confidence after an accident or illness,
  • Neurological conditions,
  • Paediatric conditions/syndromes,
  • Return to sport/hobbies.

Please phone Julie on 07811 370 252 to discuss any injury if you have any concerns or are unsure if Physiotherapy will help.

If it has been a long- term injury and you are not sure if treatment can help you may be surprised what a few sessions can do for you.

Who should see a Physiotherapist

Physiotherapy is not just for athletes with sports related injuries. Julie regularly sees patients from many walks of life including musicians, gardners, golfers, skiers, bikers, climbers. 

Anyone suffering from pain or impairment which has been related to an accident, overuse from sports trauma to gardening strain can benefit from  guided Physiotherapy.

Julie will treat any age of individual from Paediatric to the elderly.

Ultimately anyone can benefit from a session who is in pain, has lost function or confidence. 

What to expect when you come to Highland Physiotherapy

Please arrive a few minutes before your appointment time to allow any necessary paperwork to be filled out.

In Aviemore Julie’s clinic is in Dalfaber Golf and Country Club, please let the reception staff at the front desk know you have arrived and take a seat in the restaurant area next the swimming pool/ gym. Julie will come to meet you at your specific appointment time.

In Inverness Julie’s clinic is based from the Centre for Complementary Therapies,  please let the reception staff know you have arrived and take a seat in the waiting area.

On your first appointment Julie will ask a number of questions regarding the nature of your injury, how it is affecting you personally and a bit about yourself as an individual. This will give Julie an idea about yourself as an individual and what you may be trying to get back to following this injury ie a 10km race next week or back to gardening with friends.

Any information shared is kept in the strictest of confidence and will not be discussed with external parties without patient permission ie a GP or Orthopaedic Consultant. You will also be asked to sign and date a consent form prior to your initial assessment taking place.

Following your initial assessment Julie will use the latest evidence based techniques to address the underlying problem, this will range from manual therapy, strength and conditioning, taping, electrotherapy amongst others. Please refer to Treatment for a full list of services provided.

Please bring a pair of shorts and any relevant footwear.

If a patient is under 16 years old a parent or guardian is necessary to sit in on the appointment. Equally if an over 16 year old patient would like a partner/friend to attend that is not a problem.

If at any stage during the treatment you are feeling uncomfortable or are in increasing pain please make Julie aware.
