getting better faster..............
Private one to one physiotherapy helping you on the journey from an episode of pain or injury back to full health.
My approach is simple, easy to understand, and very effective. I am a believer in getting the fundamentals right from the start, and letting the body do the rest. This may take the form of postural correction, mobilising stiff joints, massaging tight muscles, stretching essential muscle groups, and muscle balance exercises to hold it all together.
My emphasis is on quality, and I speak in plain English. I am here to help you get better, not confuse you with long scary medical speak. I like to build a rapport, and you will have continuity of care by being assessed and treated by me for the duration on your recovery.
As described by a recent patient.
"A doctor friend recommended Richard Misselbrook. His assessment of my predicament was calm and reassuring. He is very observant and he listens. With Richard's professional expertise, manipulation and exercises I recovered. I can now do everything again - even long distance driving." Rosalind, London.
Your first appointment will need an hour, this includes a thorough assessment, and comprehensive treatment tailored to you. The treatment will usually be a combination of manual hands on work, and rehabilitation exercises.
I am based in a quiet location just off SLOANE SQUAREin the Chelsea area (SW1).

Summed up nicely:
"Richard Misselbrook is one of the best physiotherapists that I have had the pleasure to work with. He has been treating my patients, with a variety of painful musculoskeletal problems, for the past 5 years. The patient feedback is that he is extremely positive, caring and effective in treating acute and chronic pain. He has a gift for knowing what is going on and dealing with the problem with skill and sensitivity. I would highly recommend him".

What is Physiotherapy and how can it help?
For patients presenting with Orthopaedic or Rheumatological symptoms, physiotherapy is the most appropriate treatment intervention other than medication or injections. In these most complex of conditions physiotherapy is uniquely able to re-address muscular joint and nerve tension commonly associated with joint pathology. This involves investigating the cause of your complaint (usually pain), and then linking this to your muscles, joints, nerves and movement patterns.
Physiotherapy is the assessment, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal dysfunction. Physiotherapy promotes optimal rehabilitation and pain relief by a non-invasive hands on approach, following bone, muscle, nerve, ligament and joint injuries.
Physiotherapy can help relieve your pain allowing you to return to full function and do all the things you want to do. Whether you have had an acute injury through sport, accident or a long term chronic problem such as postural back or neck pain physiotherapy is here to help!
Here at RM Physiotherapy injury and disease are treated by encouraging the body's own natural healing mechanisms to optimise recovery.
What can we treat?
We can treat a great variety of problems including back pain, neck pain, inflammation and muscle spasm.
In particular Back and neck problems such as sciatica, lumbago, neck pain, headaches and whiplash respond very well.
Sports injuries such as knee pain, ankle pain, hamstring strains, tennis elbow, shin splints, cartilage damage, ligament sprains, and meniscal tears. These respond well to physiotherapy.
Orthopaedic problems such as fractures, joint replacements and poor biomechanics can also be helped.
Arthritic conditions, if you have been diagnosed with osteo-arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis or have other joint problems and pain, we can provide you with advice, exercises (including hydrotherapy exercises) and treatments to reduce your pain.
