About    

For sports and non-related sports injury

Our approach is always research based and addresses the underlying cause to your problem.  We do not just offer symptom relief.

Are you suffering with any of the following?

Back & shoulder pain

Knee pain

Hip pain

Ankle & foot pain

Elbow pain

Neck pain

 

Our main objective is to ensure we diagnose and treat the underlying cause  of your problem and not just the presenting symptoms

Treatment

The treatment used will depend on the injury or problem diagnosed.The following are some of the usual methods used at the clinic;

- We conduct a detailed case history of the condition.

-We then carry out a comprehensive range of diagnostic tests.

-Following this we generally mobilise the effected area by means of deep tissue massage.

-By this time we can ascertain not only the injury but also to what degree it is injured.

-From this stage a specific treatment plan can be implemented.

-There are a wide range of treatments available including electro-massage, ultra sound, interferential and manual manipulations to increase range of motion and flexibility, thereby reducing pain and promoting recovery.

Suspension Training for strength and rehabilitation 

Treatments are run over a course and the normal duration is 3-5 sessions. Marked improvement is usually evident following 1 to 3 sessions. With home stretching exercises in your own time progress is much quicker,your co-operation in your recovery is absolutely paramount.
