Following government instruction on Tuesday 23 March 2020, we have taken the decision to place on hold all patient appointments pending further guidance from the government and our professional body.
We will continue to receive emails and telephone calls during this time so please do contact us if you have any queries regarding your care. We will review your case individually and communicate out to you again when we have an update on the situation.
We apologise for the inconvenience we know this brings to you but ask you to support us as we comply with the necessary regulations in order to minimise the effects of Covid 19 and hope that we can resume your Physiotherapy care very soon.
Description Of Fractures, Subluxations and Dislocation
Fracture is where there is a break in the bone which may or may not have moved out of place. Open/compound is where the broken bone breaks through the skins surface. Usually but not always, the area is immobilised for around 6 weeks in order for the bone to re-unite, but some areas are very difficult to immobilise or are not necessary such as shoulder and pelvis Subluxation is where the joint is partially out of place. This may return to position without any assistance Dislocation is where the joint has completely come out of position and usually requires medical assistance to relocate it to its correct position
