Recover with a pro
Physiotherapy is the science of restoring movement and function to parts of the body and mapping out a plan to keep issues away. For injury rehabilitation, sports preparation, post-operative care and more, time with a physio can be a key part of recovery.
With Urban, you can book degree-qualified mobile physiotherapists right to your door.
During your treatment
If this is your first appointment, your session will begin with an assessment of your physical condition, including tests on the strength and range of motion of problem areas.
Most consultations and follow-ups also include some manual treatment. Usually this includes stretching, manipulation of joints and some light exercises, although your therapist might also include other treatments, like kinesiology taping or dry needling.
Your physio will leave you with an understanding of the causes of discomfort and a plan for recovery – this typically includes a routine of daily stretches and exercises, recommendations on further treatments and a timeline for improvements.
More info about at-home physiotherapy
Physiotherapy can help with a number of musculoskeletal conditions, from injuries, like a torn achilles’ tendon or sprain, to problems linked to past and ongoing health conditions, like fibromyalgia, and arthritis.
Urban physiotherapists are all fully registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). That means they’ve got a three- or four-year degree programme under their belt, and a minimum of a thousand hours of clinical training. You’re in good hands.
Some are also specialists in areas such as women’s health (pre- and post-natal care), neurological disorders and paediatrics – browse individual bios to find the right physio for you.
Simply search for their name when you go to choose a practitioner.
Some, but not all, physio sessions are active treatments with lots of moving around, so you’re best off wearing light, breathable clothing - a t-shirt and leggings or shorts is fine.
That’s normally up to your physio after they’ve given you an initial assessment. As part of that first treatment, they’ll map out a plan for your recovery, with a suggested number of consultations over a longer period.
Yes, but only after your first trimester and only with an Urban physio who specialises in womens’ health – check your physio’s bio to see their specialisations.
