Frequently asked questions

Clients will attend physiotherapy normally complaining of pain within any region of the body. This is likely as a result of injury from trauma or repetitive strain from activities of daily living, work postures or sport. They are keen for a physiotherapy assessment to diagnosis the problem and then receive treatment. This injury may be to the muscles, tendons, ligmaments, joints or nerves of the body.

Sports massage is more for clients that are experiencing tightness and tension in their muscles. This could be associated with pain and they are keen for a massage to relieve this stress. Clients may also choose massage to relieve the ongoing stress of work-related postures and the loads associated with sporting or gym activity and activities of daily living.

Clients will normally attend for physiotherapy if the pain was the result of trauma or if their pain is the result of a change or increase in activity level. Physiotherapy may be chosen when the client problem is fairly recent and where it may be thought that joint and soft tissue techniques or rehabilitation exercise may resolve the problem. We can also provide footwear advice.

Podiatry may be sought if symptoms are thought to be biomechanical in nature. In other words the way you move. The solution in this case may be reviewing your footwear or assessing your requirement for insoles. If the condition has failed to recover through physiotherapy intervention and rehabilitation exercises a podiatry opinion may be sought. Podiatry also might be chosen if the client has previously benefited from insoles for the condition in the past and are now needing them updated.

"Iain has been working his wonders as my physio for more than ten years. Being a runner himself Ian understands not just the mechanics of the body but the psychology of sport. Iain would be the first person I contact when I need advice be it for a niggle, an injury or a new personalised training programme. As someone who has competed at club, national and international level I would not hesitate to recommend Iain’s services to anyone."

"Having suffered for a number of years from sciatica, neck and shoulder pain and repetitive hamstring strains I decided to give the Achilles Heel clinic a try, and booked in with Christine. The results were tremendous! After 3 months sciatica pain was reduced to a twinge, neck and shoulder pain gone and haven't had any hamstring problems after having regular massages. It's not always a quick fix. But these guys are worth giving a try for their excellent knowledge of anatomy and hands on treatments.
