Our Philosophy at Newcastle Integrated Physiotherapy

Hands On Treatment At  Newcastle Integrated Physiotherapy1. Hands-on treatment

When you visit Newcastle Integrated Physiotherapy you will find that we emphasise on using hands-on therapy. This involves manual techniques such as gentle manipulation /mobilisation; massage; trigger point therapy; stretching and myofascial release. This helps you regain pain free movement in your joints and soft tissues.

2. Evidenced based therapy

As far as possible, we use evidence from the literature and research to guide treatment. This will ensure that you receive the best and most up to date treatment approaches.

3. Active therapy

Much of the evidence points to the importance of active therapy in successfully overcoming pain and injury. Active therapy involves you in the treatment process. It means that you can learn ways to treat yourself rather than relying solely on passive therapy such as hands-on treatment and medication.

4. Prescribed exercises

One of the cornerstones of good physiotherapy is exercise. You will be prescribed exercises to help improve your strength, mobility, balance and function. Exercises will complement the hands-on treatment. It will allow you to take control and be part of the healing process. This will speed up recovery, reduce recurrence and reduce your dependency on your therapist.

5. Education and communication

It is important that you understand what your problem is, how it occurred and how to manage it. You will be given ongoing education about your problem so that you understand the treatment process and how you can help.

6. Working with your medical doctor

Though physiotherapists are primary contact practitioners (You don't need a medical referral to have physiotherapy treatment if you are paying out of pocket or are privately insured.), they do work closely with the medical profession. Medical doctors commonly involve a physiotherapist in the management of many problems. Conversely, physiotherapists are quick to refer patients to a medical doctor if the problem requires this.
