Whether you've experienced a slip and fall accident or sports injury, physiotherapy comes with multiple benefits. Using healing processes that work in tandem with your body's natural properties, physiotherapy can relieve pain and promote healing. If you're interested in physiotherapy in Ealing, you may want to know more about how it can benefit you first: Physiotherapy acts as a natural form of pain relief How physiotherapy addresses your pain issues depends on the root cause. For example, if it's associated with poor posture or repeated movements in the workplace, your physiotherapist will teach you measures that nip it in the bud. In some cases they may teach you exercises that strengthen important muscle groups, or movements that reduce the pain associated with a sports injury. When said muscles regain strength, they reduce the strain on other muscles, leading to a reduction in pain.

Have you recently been involved in a serious traffic accident, or had suffered a sudden blow to your head whilst playing rugby, then found yourself having difficulty moving your neck afterwards? You might have had whiplash, an injury caused by any sudden movement of your head forwards, backwards, or sideways. Due to the sudden or vigorous movement of the head, the tendons and ligaments, those tough fibrous bands connecting the muscles to the bone and linking two bones, become damaged. Sometimes, whiplash could get better on its own, whilst for some the pain could last for at least six months. Whatever the case may be, going to London physiotherapy experts can help you alleviate the neck pain you’re suffering from as an offshoot of whiplash.

In a recent study of over a thousand U.K. adults, conducted by health and safety consultancy Arinite, results showed that 22 per cent of respondents expressed concern about experiencing back or neck injuries, whilst 18 per cent worried about having repetitive strain injuries. Both injuries could be acquired at work. Repetitive strain injuries or RSIs are often seen amongst people working all day in front of the computer or carrying out repetitive manual work, and these often cause pain to some parts of the upper body.
