Treating injuries with Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

by admin / 03 October 2018 / No Comments

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy is the treatment of any problem affecting soft tissues, muscles and joints. The term musculoskeletal pain covers a very wide range of conditions often caused by an injury to the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments or nerves. This can be caused by number of factors including jerky movements, car accidents, falls, fractures, sprains, dislocations and direct blows to the muscles. It can be acute, chronic or intermittent and symptoms can include but not limited to:

  • Pain, Aching or stiffness
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • The feeling that your muscles have been pulled or overworked
  • Twitching muscles

Alok, a musculoskeletal extended scope physiotherapist, recommends early treatment because if the condition is left untreated for long time, it becomes chronic and can lead to secondary problems. Chronic pain can be difficult to treat and delays normal function.

Alok has been working at Thame Therapy clinic for more than five years, treating all types of MSK and sports related injuries with special interest in shoulder and spinal related conditions. He has trained in a variety of specialized treatment techniques such as Manual Therapy, Injection Therapy, Acupuncture, Taping, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy and Sports Massage. Along with a knowledge of diagnostic image readings, he provides a holistic treatment package for musculoskeletal problems.

Alok completed his postgraduation in MSK from Sheffield Hallam University; UK in 2008, post-graduation Diploma in Orthopaedic Medicine in 2010. He is a qualified injection therapist with over five years’ experience and has recently completed post-graduation Certificate in Diagnostic MSK Ultrasound recently, his third master’s level education. He is registered with HCPC and CSP.

He also works at East Oxford Health Centre, NHS which involves working closely with Orthopaedic consultants and diagnostics team. His role is to undertake a comprehensive assessment of patients including those with diverse or complex presentations; use advanced clinical reasoning, investigative and manual assessment techniques to provide an accurate diagnosis of their condition, perform steroid injections and refer for surgery as required.

Alok recommends early intervention and exercise therapy for all soft tissue, muscular and joint problems. He combines his clinical skills with a friendly, collaborative approach.
