Treatments to overcome slip, trip or fall – related injuries
Once a diagnosis and initial assessment of your condition has been established by a medical practitioner, you may require hospital based treatments such as surgery, soft casts, plaster casts and strapping. However, other therapies can assist the healing process and increase the degrees of movement and mobility in the longer term.
Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Acupuncture and Bowen Technique can all increase the rate of healing. Over time, by increasing flexibility, muscle tone and strength, the body can begin to regain its former dexterity and posture.
