From elite sportsman to recreational athletes; from manual labor to office worker, FFP Manchester Physio can guarantee a patient centred approach, no matter what issue you present with – we aim to treat the person, not the patient.
Whether it’s the need to recover from an injury which is affecting your ability to work or your daily routine, getting on your new bike, playing football at the weekends, or involves a more complex issue within an elite sporting environment FFP can offer a bespoke service to allow you to return to FULL FUNCTION – no matter what that may be – allowing you to return to the activities that you enjoy in life.
WHY CHOOSE FFP ?
FFP aims to bring the standards and experiences of working with elite athletes and within elite sporting environments to everyone – no matter what your background or sporting level. At FFP we aim to offer services usually only available to elite athletes and strive to provide a complete and detailed injury pathway – from the initial assessment all the way through to end stage functional rehabilitation – to ensure your journey to FULL FUNCTION is as smooth as possible.
We aim to restore and return you to your unique level of FULL FUNCTION Manchester Physio – no matter what that may be – through a process of detailed assessments, accurate diagnoses, utilization of a depth of treatment services, individualized rehabilitation programmes and specialized screening protocols – to allow you to recover from a specific injury, return to work or increase athletic performance.
As well as offering an individualized person centered approach – we believe in a functional and whole body approach – to assessment, rehabilitation and performance. This means that not just the specific location of pain will be assessed and treated, but movement dysfunction of the body as a whole will be focused on – allowing the root causes of your pain to be addressed opposed to merely treating the painful structure – with the goal being reducing the chances of re-injury
