At Monkman Physiotherapy we pride ourselves on trying to keep the rehabilitation process nice and simple for every patient in order to optimise recovery as best possible. Tom has extensive experience of working with athletes and non athletes in both the NHS and private setting to assist recovery following an injury, surgery or a fracture.
REHABILITATION AT ITS BEST
Tom has been instrumental in my recovery from a repetitive calf injury. As as keen endurance athlete himself, he applied his passion for sport and understanding of anatomy to create a program that would suit my training. His follow up and after care is second to now. Would highly recommend to others.
Tom has always been a great physio for me, I recently had a long term back pain that I did not know the source. He checked me over and advised me what to do and within a couple months it has completely gone.
I’ve had multiple calf injuries due to level of exercise required to compete as a semi professional Ironman athlete. Specifically an injury picked up during a middle distance triathlon. Through using his specialist knowledge around triathlon, Tom used massage and showed me some great exercises to assist me back to competition.
I suffered a double break to my collarbone after a cycling accident. An 8 week recovery process proved to be only partially successful and I required surgery. Post surgery I spoke to Tom who recognised the importance of getting my mobility and strength back so I could get back on my bike. Tom provided me exercises to do, which helped to restore my range of mobility and importantly provided me with some strength that resolved the numbness I would feel on rides longer than 30 minutes.
Tom is a great professional who understands the passion we all have for sport and will have you up and running again in no time.
HOW CAN PHYSIOTHERAPY HELP POST UPPER LIMB SURGERY?
Following surgery your body is in a state of repair and it is extremely important to optimise this stage to ensure the best recovery. Physiotherapy aims at improving your function through increased joint movement, muscle strength, pain reduction and many more benefits. Upper limb surgery can be very challenging to recover from and it is important to get the correct advice for the best results. A few examples of surgery may include, ulnar nerve decompression, rotator cuff repair, radial head replacement, shoulder joint replacement, sub-acromial decompression (SAD), rotator cuff repair, fixation of a fracture through pins and plates.
IS REHABILITATION APPROPRIATE FOLLOWING A MUSCLE INJURY?
Yes, rehabilitation is extremely important to ensure your muscle recovers and gets back to it’s full strength. At Monkman Physiotherapy we have a range of brilliant facilities that we can use during the rehabilitation programme to improve your muscle strength in a structured way. We will apply a simplistic approach to your exercises, ensure it never gets boring and is also enjoyable along the way!
