Diagnosis of your injury is the key to a speedy recovery. Our Physios use their skills to gather evidence and form a diagnosis. They will question you about the history of the problem and the symptoms you are suffering and then carry out physical assessment of your movement and strength.
Treatment will then include one or more of the following: advice, exercise, manual therapy, soft tissue treatments, taping.
Our Physios know how to help you to exercise and stay strong before going in to have a planned operation and are also experts in helping you load your body with strengthening and stretching exercises at the appropriate stage in your recovery post-op so that you can get back on the mountain asap.
We see injury as an opportunity to develop improved strength, movement or awareness of other areas of your body when you are forced to take time out from your regular sport.
Taping can be a fabulous adjunct to your recovery by offloading the injured tissues. Supporting your injuries but still enabling you to move, kinesiology tape has revolutionised return to sport after injury by providing you with support which is more specific to your anatomy than an off the shelf brace.
Not only do we at mountain-rehab guide you through recovery from symptoms, we believe in correcting the underlying cause of your problem. As a result you can end up fitter, stronger and more body aware than prior to your injury, which means you will be much less likely to need us for the same problem in the future, which has to be a good thing!

No, Physiotherapists are primary health providers and you can refer yourself with out a Dr’s recommendation. If you want your fees to be reimbursed by your health insurance company then they will normally require you to be referred by a Dr.
You will need to confirm this with your insurance company as it will depend on your individual policy. We are happy to provide receipts for your insurers.
