Treatment of sinus and chest conditions


We offer relief from sinus headaches. Physiotherapist we can assist children and adults with chest infections and sinus infections in various ways.

Chest physiotherapy generally aims to remove obstructive secretions (phlegm) in the lungs, to make it easier for the child to breathe and to improve the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide.

We can help you clear phlegm from your chest. We can also teach you breathing exercises, ways to lie to help drain the phlegm, and talk to you about preventative measures to prevent the infection to friends and family.

Breathing exercise is very important for people to assist in full recovery. It is essential to do strength exercises of all the big muscle groups, including teaching diaphragmatic breathing, and some cardiovascular or endurance exercise. Keshri Fuchs Physiotherapists can advise on such an exercise programme. Physiotherapy for treating sinus congestion include laser radiation, dry needling, nebulisation, ultrasound, acupressure point therapy and self help techniques.

Arthritis and Treatment of Joint Pain

Pain management physiotherapists have a special interest in the assessment and management of persistent pain problems. A range of techniques are utilised - physical and corrective actions - with the aim of reducing pain symptoms, along with the associated disability and distress.

Patients with a wide range of conditions can be helped by this approach, for example, spinal pain, headaches, osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, and many others. As physiotherapists we have a variety of techniques or 'tools in our tool box' that will help you.

Dry Needling


Dry Needling works in a number of ways. It changes the way your body senses pain; it helps the body heal stubborn muscle spasm associated with trigger points and promotes electrical and chemical changes to assist with the healing process.

Dry Needling can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Muscle pain and dysfunction
  • Headaches
  • Certain nerve problems
