Axon Physio in Billericay provides effective physiotherapy treatments for back and neck pain, sports injuries and all other conditions.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession concerned with human function and movement, treating and preventing injuries by natural means. The aim is to help alleviate pain, restore normal movement and function by speeding up the healing process, and help return the body to its usual balanced state.
What happens during a Physiotherapy session?
At Axon we specialise in ‘hands on’, focused manual physiotherapy for the treatment of both acute and chronic musculo-skeletal conditions.
Taking the time to accurately understand and assess your condition is essential to successful results. Initially, we will explore the reason you are seeking treatment, review the problem area, and make a full assessment. Once the condition is diagnosed we develop an effective treatment plan that takes into account your lifestyle, leisure activities and general health, and includes advice on how you can help yourself. We will explain the condition and treatment plan with you, and answer any questions you may have.
An integrated treatment plan may include:
Exercise programmes – designed to improve mobility and strengthen muscles, for example, Pilates
Mobilisation of joints and massage of soft tissues – to reduce pain and stiffness
Acupuncture – using very fine needles to decrease pain and speed up healing
Electrotherapy – for example, ultrasound to speed up healing
We can, with your consent, discuss our findings with your GP for appropriate medical advice.
