Jason Power

Jason graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in 2012. He has gained over 10 years’ experience in managing diverse complex musculoskeletal (MSK) caseloads. Jason originally had a background in Personal Training which was a significant driver for him to work within the MSK field. He started his physiotherapy career in MSK working in South Staffordshire dealing with a varied age group and general MSK conditions. Jason then worked as senior physiotherapist at Pembury hospital for over 6 years and progressed his way up to a clinical specialist. In that particular role he gained valuable experience working closely with orthopaedic surgeons and treating patients with a range of MSK conditions, including sports injuries and post-operation rehabilitation.

Jason has always been keen to remain up to date with the most effective clinical treatments so has continued to develop his clinical skills and continued to develop his skills which include acupuncture, spinal mobilisation / manipulations and functional exercise rehabilitation. He now works on a part-time basis for ESHT as a highly specialised physiotherapist in outpatient MSK. He is proficient in treating sporting injuries, but equally happy dealing with more complex persistent pain patients and managed the Rheumatology rehabilitation pathway for over 3 years at EDGH.

Jason is registered with the Health and care professions council (HCPC), The Chartered Society of physiotherapy (CSP), The Acupuncture Association of Chartered physiotherapists (AACP), Aquatic Association of Chartered physiotherapists (AACP) and The British Society of rheumatology (BSR).
“As a dedicated and compassionate physiotherapist, I am committed to helping my patients achieve their optimal physical health and wellbeing. With extensive experience in treating a wide range of conditions, including musculoskeletal injuries, neurological, rheumatological and chronic pain, I am skilled in developing personalised treatment plans that address each patient’s unique needs and goals. Through a combination of manual therapy including spinal mobilisation / manipulations, acupuncture, K-Taping, soft tissue techniques, exercise prescription and patient education. I strive to empower my patients to take an active role in their own recovery, and achieve lasting results. With a strong focus on evidence-based practice and on-going professional development, I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to every patient I treat.”

Outside of work Jason spends most of his leisure time with his family. He has a keen interest in general sports and participated in team sports including football from a young age right up until his forties. He has an excellent anatomical knowledge essential requirement for strength and conditioning. He has long since hung up his boots, but now keeps fit in the gym and regularly participates in charity cycling events.

Treatments

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.

At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term problems, and preparation for a sporting event.

Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession. Physiotherapists use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as neuro-musculoskeletal (back pain, whiplash associated disorder, sports injuries, arthritis) or neurological (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s).

What is acupunture?
Acupuncture is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. This therapy originated in China more than two thousand years ago.

According to traditional Chinese theory, acupuncture works by rebalancing the flow of energy in the body. Traditional Chinese medicine recognizes a complex system of ‘meridians’ or energy channels in the body. Symptoms of illness, such as pain, are regarded as a disturbance of energy flow. The insertion of needles at various carefully selected points on the meridians is believed to restore the smooth flow of energy and re-
establish harmony in the body.
In traditional Chinese acupuncture, an individualized ‘prescription’ of points is selected for each patient, according to their unique pattern of energy disturbance.

What happens during treatment?
During treatment, fine needles are inserted through the skin and left in position, either briefly or for up to half an hour.  This is not usually painful, but may give rise to a mild aching sensation just after the needles are inserted.

Many people notice a pleasant feeling of relaxation and well-being during treatment, and the quality of sleep often improves following acupuncture.

What sorts of conditions can be treated with acupuncture?
Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, and should be considered particularly for the following.

  • All types of painful conditions
  • Muscle and joint problems, including painful muscles, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, tennis elbow
  • Tension headaches and migraines
  • Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, and following chemotherapy
  • Hay fever, rhinitis, recurrent sinusitis, asthma
  • Painful periods, irregular periods, infertility
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Irritable bowel syndrome and constipation
  • Irritable bladder
  • Dry eyes and saliva deficiency

How many treatments are needed?
The response to acupuncture tends to become stronger with each treatment. This cumulative effect means that several treatments are usually needed before a clear and lasting benefit is seen. An initial trial of six treatments at weekly intervals is appropriate for most conditions. If no benefit is seen after this, then further treatments are unlikely to help. In those who do respond, the improvement can usually be maintained and strengthened with further more widely spaced ‘top-up’ treatments.

Is acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture is generally very safe. Serious side effects are very rare, less than one per 10,000 treatments. The commonest side effect is drowsiness after treatment, affecting about one in five people. Minor bleeding or bruising occurs after acupuncture in about 3% of treatments. Rarer side effects include pain during treatment, temporary worsening of symptoms, and fainting.

If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking an anticoagulant like Warfarin, acupuncture is still safe as long as certain acupuncture points are avoided.

Single-use, sterile, disposable needles are used for every treatment.

Scientific research
During the last few decades there has been a rapid growth in scientific research into acupuncture. The mechanisms of acupuncture pain relief are now fairly well understood. We know that acupuncture enhances the release of natural painkillers in the body (endorphins) and also balances organ function through the autonomic nervous system, regulates the immune system, suppresses allergic reactions, and improves wound healing. In fact, the scientific evidence for acupuncture is stronger than for many conventional treatments.

In the last few years, leading medical journals, including the Lancet and the British Medical Journal, have published major clinical trials of acupuncture, which prove that it is an effective treatment for recurrent headaches, chronic back pain and osteoarthritis of the knee.
