Our treatments include:
Joint mobilisations are carried out on spinal or periphieral joints of the body by gliding one joint surface on another. They are used for treatment for joint stiffness which are painful and restrict mobility. The purpose of the treatment is to restore joint freedom and therefore improve the movements of the particular joint.
Trigger points, also known as ‘knots’ in muscles, are those areas of tenderness represent the problem areas associated with pain. By applying pressure in a systematic manner on or around the trigger point area, it causes the release of muscle tension and helps improve flexibility and decrease pain.
Neural mobilisations is an advanced technique to treat trapped nerves in the low back or neck. It helps bring back mobility to the neural tissue by improving the sliding and gliding of the nerves.
Massage is the manipulating of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques to enhance function, decrease muscle tightness, aid in the healing process and promote relaxation and well-being.
This is also know as .Deep Transverse Friction Massage. It is used to break down scar tissue formation and is used to treat soft tissue injuries such as ligament and muscle injuries. It helps healing tissue form and mold congruently with surrounding tissue
Ultrasound therapy delivers sound waves into the body to provide a pain free high frequency pressure wave treatment. This brings blood flow to the area to stimulate healing. It enhances the recovery and repair rate of damaged tissue by increasing the blood flow, reducing swelling and promoting the natural healing of muscles tendons and ligaments.
Interferential therapy uses medium frequency currents that pass through soft tissue simultaneously and literally ‘interfere’ with each other. This interference gives rise to peripheral nerves being stimulated. Its clinical applications include pain relief, muscle stimulation, increased local blood flow and reduction of oedema.
Taping is often used to support a joint or to provide reminders about our posture or to wake up muscles that are lazy or to inhibit muscles that are overactive. Taping can also be used as a means of pain control by reminding us to straighten our posture. Taping is highly effective in supporting a joint that has been sprained to hold the joint in proper position for healing.
A muscle imbalance develops when some of the muscles surrounding a joint are weak and others are tight. As a result, certain muscles will need to be strengthened and others will need to be stretched. Every good physiotherapy program will consist of some type of exercise. Each exercise programme will be specifically designed for each person’s specific problem. We use the best and latest software to create your personalised and printed exercise programme.
