A brief intorduction to our procedures …
Physio – treatment consists of hands on manual therapy to loosen the stiff bits and functional rehabilitation to direct you and educate you to move better. We can get the results you are searching for.
Sports Physio -it’s all about your rehabilitation. From the first tentative steps post-op to the final stage required for your sport. We’ll help coach, coax and coerce your recovery. We’re not personal trainers, but we know lots who are: when and if the time’s right we’ll point you in the right direction.
Gait Analysis -is used to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk. It is also commonly used in sports biomechanics to help athletes run more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems in people with injuries.
Soft Tissue Sports Massage -is used to iron out those knots and relive the tension of your muscles, which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.
Manipulation – spinal manipulations can relieve back pain by taking pressure off sensitive nerves or tissue, increase range of motion, restoring blood flow, reducing muscle tension, and, like more active exercise, promote the release of endorphins within the body to act as natural painkillers.
Back pain – this is all about you and your back. It may not involve pushing or cracking the sore bits or core stability or stretching or strengthening your back.What we do is not revolutionary; it’s just very good. We will keep you moving better and show you functional, dynamic and out of this world rehab strategies. We do simple stuff well. Very well. We won’t hide behind complex explanations and we won’t treat you to death.
Acupuncture – physiotherapists base their treatments on scientific research and clinical evidence that Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being), to name but a few. These chemicals assist the body’s healing processes and offer pain relief as a precursor to other treatments such as manual therapy or exercise in order to aid recovery.
Work station ergonomics – an ergonomic assessment is an evaluation to determine if a work station is appropriately set up for an individual to be able to work at their most optimal level throughout the day. Recommendations are made on the appropriate set-up of the work station including: chair, monitor, keyboard and mouse, telephone, work space, paperwork, etc. We will also provide instructions on what to do during the day to maintain posture and flexibility.
