What can I expect from my appointment?
Firstly, we’ll carry out a complete and detailed consultation that usually takes an hour, then a treatment plan is detailed.
Our services include:
In order to restore a full, pain-free range of motion to a joint or muscle we utilise a variety of practical techniques. These include sports massage, joint mobilisations, mobilisations with movement (MWM), manipulations, myofascial release and muscle energy techniques.
Gait analysis & orthotic prescription
Incorrect biomechanics of the lower extremity can be influenced through orthotic prescription. We can assess your gait and make a decision as to whether a set of orthotics will benefit you.
This deep tissue treatment is thought to work by reducing excessive post- exercise muscle tone, increasing muscle range of motion, circulation and nutrition to damaged tissue and deactivating symptomatic trigger points. As well as improving soft tissue function, massage may identify soft tissue abnormalities, which could lead to injury.
Taping can be used to restrict undesired, potentially harmful movement and allow desired movement. It can be used in injury prevention and in rehabilitation.
Strength & conditioning
Musculoskeletal injuries require active rehabilitation in order to return to a pre-injury state with full function. By incorporating this type of training you will build strength and also reduce the chance of re-injury. We advise strength and conditioning exercises to enable a quick recovery so you can perform optimally as soon as possible.
Incorrect biomechanics are frequently associated with injuries. Using a thorough biomechanical screening process, we can identify areas of weakness, dysfunction, poor motor control and restriction. We then design a treatment programme that will work towards correcting any abnormalities.
