During your time here in Physio @ SoCo, the aim is to get a thorough understanding of the root cause of your problem so we don’t just treat the surface cracks and ignore the real issues. We have length initial consultations – this allows us to fully get to the bottom of your issues, create your individualised treatment programme, and get a treatment session included to boot. This often means less overall treatment needed then. Once we know what your goals are – whether it’s to get back to work, to be able to look over your shoulder or walk up and down stairs without pain, or to go in a car journey for more than a half hour without needing a helicopter evacuation afterwards – we will use the latest evidence-based treatment methods to both reduce your pain in the short-term and fix any underlying issues long-term, all the while optimizing your recovery process through the SoCo patient experience, including your own personal Case Manager who will be with you every rep of the way to your recovery, and personalised nutrition and recovery sessions.

The most common ligament injuries are seen in the ankle and knee following a sprain, and also in the shoulder-frequently in the AC joint.
Most common joints irritated are in the neck (e.g. in whiplash), lower back and the knees in degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis.
