Michael has been a physio for 20 years and has a steady flow of people with;
Shoulder problems (usually rotator cuff strains),
Back problems (often lower back muscle strains or between the shoulder blades),
Neck pain (sudden onset or postural),
Knee pain (often cartilage from injury),
I have seen each of these so often. In terms of treatment, I use,
Massage/trigger points/some myofascial/acupuncture for pain relief/ Bowen Technique/Cranio-Sacral/Breathwork/Therapeutic Ultrasound/ Neurostimulation with electrotherapy, also, occasionally Hypnotherapy.
Besides treatments though, I also give exercises that you can continue at home and a lot of advice which may involve discussion of de-stressing, medication, diet and supplementation.
I can usually give people a lot of reassurance and debunk what they have been told by their doctors or consultants.
So I would call myself a generalist.
I specialise in Multiple Sclerosis, Strokes and other Neurological conditions (see NeuroPhysio under Services), but I generally have something to offer people whether it be motivation, understanding the mind-body connection, or just the basics of recovering after injury or surgery.
