WHAT WE TREAT
The majority of Tim’s patients have ‘musculoskeletal’ problems, resulting from injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and nerves. This includes conditions such as:
Back and neck pain
Sprains and strains
Work related injuries
Patients are always individually assessed. A full history is taken and a thorough examination is performed to ascertain as much as possible about each patient and their problem. This will enable Tim to devise an appropriate treatment plan.
