Physiotherapy Services

This is not an exhaustive list but covers many of the conditions we see regularly at Leyland Physiotherapy. If you are affected by any of these conditions, or by a condition which is not listed below, please contact us to find out how we can help.

Physiotherapy Services – Back and Neck:
Leyland Physiotherapy ServicesMany people experience an episode of back pain or neck pain during their lifetime, and at Leyland Physiotherapy we use several approaches to provide relief from your back pain. Because it is frequently caused by poor prolonged posture, incorrect lifting, overuse, trauma or muscle imbalance we can effectively treat it with hands-on physiotherapy, electrotherapy and concise exercise.

We also provide advice including education in self-management techniques, which are promoted to prevent any injury recurrence and to encourage an earlier return to daily activities. In cases where physiotherapy is not recommended, we promptly refer patients on for a Consultant’s opinion.

Common back pain conditions that we treat are:

  • Whiplash
  • Sciatica
  • Disc injury
  • Arthritis
  • Muscular
  • Sacro-Illiac joint
  • Nerve injury

Physiotherapy Services – Joint problems:
Orthopaedic problems and aching joints often respond well to physiotherapy. We identify the joints which can be effectively treated without injection therapy or surgery, and this allows us to provide prompt pain reduction and restored function. Appropriate supports can be provided on-site when indicated.

Some of the joint conditions that we specialise in treating are:

  • Arthritis
  • Pre-operative rehabilitation before surgery
  • Post-operative rehabilitation following surgery

Preston Physiotherapy ServicesPhysiotherapy Services – Repetitive Strain Injuries

Repetitive Strain Injury, or RSI, is a painful condition caused by overuse and strain to the muscles, joints and nerves. Sedentary lifestyles, poor posture and reduced core muscle stability all encourage muscle imbalances in the body and over a period of time small, repetitive strain symptoms start to appear, with pain and restriction in function. At Leyland Physiotherapy we treat the repetitive strain injury itself, as well as offering rehabilitation of all the causal factors, including posture, to promote a full recovery.

Some of the RSI conditions and affected areas include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Impingement
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • DeQuervain syndrome

Physiotherapy Services – Pregnancy
Hormonal changes present during pregnancy help to prepare the pelvic joints for flexibility during the birthing process. Unfortunately, as a result, joint stability is reduced and sacro-iliac joints can become more vulnerable to injury. We know that mobilisation techniques for these joints help to reduce pain and restore function when used in conjunction with posture correction and concise exercises, and we work with pregnant women to treat these problems.

The most common treatments we offer to pregnant women are for:

  • Sacroiliac Joint problems
  • Carpal Tunnel

Physiotherapy Services – Neurological
Living with a neurological condition can be extremely challenging, not just physically but also emotionally. Our extremely well-trained therapists use Bobath techniques to normalise tone and retrain correct muscle memory. Positive attitude, normalised tone and improved balance and strength all help to restore normal movement patterns and therefore help regain patient independence. Physiotherapy for stroke rehabilitation is especially effective and is an area we have a particular focus in.

We specialise in working with patients affected by:

  • Stroke
  • MS
