Physiotherapy practised at St Brigid’s Centre specializes in the practice of Manual Therapy for the treatment of physical pain. This would include headaches, neck and back pain, as well as problems arising from the impingement of nerves. Managing of symptoms is often quite straightforward. To treat the problem in the long term, it is important to gain an understanding of the mechanism underlying the problem. Understanding the cause of the problem is what we assess you for, so we are certain your ailment is not tackled at a superficial manner. A thorough assessment will lead us to the correct diagnosis.
Our mission is to approach any physical condition in a holistic way,
- Identifying the problem, properly diagnosing it, excluding any underlying incipient condition,
- Carefully planning a rehabilitation program,
- Devising a preventive approach so that the problem if recurring will be eliminated on a permanent basis.
Our fields of expertise includes :-
- acute sports injuries and also other acute musculoskeletal injuries,
- Post operative rehabilitation (such as neck and back, disc operations, shoulder operations, knee cartilage operations, cruciate ligament repairs, joint replacements like knee and hip) ,
- Chronic ailments like recurrent headaches and other forms of chronic pain and also work related injuries like repetitive strain injuries and ergo dynamics in the work place.
- The clinic will be managed by two physiotherapists Mr Andrea Damato and Ms Jade Attard.
It is our intention to open the clinic every day from Monday to Saturday.
- We accept referrals to physiotherapy preferably from the patient’s family doctor or consultant taking care of the client.
- For patients who are not referred or are not sure whether they will benefit from our treatments, we offer a free 1st consultation, during which a plan of management will be proposed together with the physiotherapist who would be taking care of this case.
