Physiotherapists in West Wickham

If you've injured yourself doing sports or at home lifting something you shouldn't have, the result is usually a painful injury involving pulled, ripped or torn muscles. To heal from your injuries and rebuild those damaged muscles, you will need an appointment with the professional physiotherapists in West Wickham. Your muscles are critical to your ability to move and one of the first things West Wickham physiotherapists do when you come for an appointment is an assessment by testing muscle weakness.


They typically use what is referred to as the Oxford Scale, so they need to know the anatomy of muscles extremely well so the joints may be positioned "just so" for the assessment and testing. The way the Scale works is that muscles are rated from 1 to 5 and are typically written down as 1/5 or 5/5 with either a plus or minus sign indicating a muscle has either more or less strength, but not quite enough to go the whole scale.


There is even a 0 grade that means not much action going on in the muscle at all. A Grade 1 is a slight twitch from a minor muscle contraction, but not strong enough to do joint movement. Grade 2 means the muscle is strong enough to do the work without the force of gravity. Grade 3 means the muscle can do all the joint action against gravity, but with no resistance. The higher the grade, the better it is for you.
