Persistent dizziness and poor balance following an attack of vertigo or labryinthitis is debilitating and can persist for many months. This can be treated by specialist physiotherapy using a combination of specific exercises and manual therapy.

Balance problems and falls are common in older people. Falls can lead to loss of confidence and fractures causing disability and loss of independence. Falls can be prevented by physiotherapy to improve flexibility, strength, coordination and balance. There is good evidence that 85 year olds can improve their strength and balance significantly in a 6 week activity programme.

Gait and running analysis

A gait and running assessment includes a biomechanical video analysis of your legs from your pelvis to your toes.

This will identify the underlying cause of persistent and recurrent problems such as low back, hip, thigh, knee, ankle or foot pain particularly if this comes on after exercise such as walking, running or playing sport. It’s also beneficial if you undertake sport at high level and have an ache or pain in your back or lower limbs that is affecting your performance. We can use this technology to analyse technique for other sports too.

Shockwave Therapy

About shockwave:

  • Shockwave is a well-developed, safe and highly effective treatment for musculoskeletal disorders
  • The shockwaves produce high energy sound waves into painful areas of the body such as tendons, ligaments, muscles and bone.
  • Some of the benefits of shockwave are experienced after 1-3 sessions with most people seeing good improvements with five regular treatments even if symptoms are chronic in nature.
  • The shockwave therapy helps to eliminate pain and restore mobility regardless of whether individuals are keen amateurs or elite sports players

Treatment can be effective for:

*  Achilles tendinopathy

*  plantar fasciitis

*  tennis and golfer’s elbows

* trigger point issues

*  patella tendinopathy

*  shoulder tendinopathies

Shockwave treatment can be offered at Bury Physio as part of normal treatment or as part of a package with a gym programme.  Research has found that using shockwave in conjunction with a supervised rehabilitation gym programme can produce the best outcomes.
