Treatments

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy treatment in the form of manual therapy (‘hands-on’), targeting stiff and painful joints and muscles will help to reduce pain and facilitate tissue healing and subsequent return to function. In many cases, patients will not recall any trauma to cause an injury and their symptoms may be attributed to abnormal posture and compensatory movements. As part of your assessment and home exercise programme, we will strive to help you improve your posture and movement patterns.

Sports Massage & Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that targets the alignment of muscle layers and the associated connecting tissue. This form of massage therapy can help to alleviate aches and pains associated with a stiff neck, upper and lower back pain and muscle fatigue. In a similar way, sports massage works deep into the muscles, flushing away toxins and muscle tightness. Regular massage will increase joint mobility & flexibility and reduce the risk of injury during exercise.

osteopathy treatment

Osteopathy

Osteopathy specialises in the diagnosis, management, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. Osteopathy focuses on the whole person, not just the symptoms. If the body is well balanced, it is more efficient and will function with the minimum wear and tear. Osteopathic treatment involves gentle manual techniques aimed at easing the pain, reducing muscle tension and improving mobility, resulting in enhanced blood and nerve supply to the tissues. Osteopaths also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
