Postural & Biomechanical, Orthopaedic & Neurological Assessments
A thorough assessment before devising a treatment and rehabilitation plan is of utmost importance.
Identifying any underlying postural or biomechanical issues that can lead to injuries is essential to ensure the correct treatment for YOU is chosen and for it to be most effective. Running technique assessments can also be arranged.
Sports & Remedial Massage
Sports massage is more specific, deeper, more intense & focuses on the area of the body requiring attention. The prime purpose of sports massage is to help alleviate the stress & tension, speed up healing & reduce discomfort.
It is based on various elements of massage and incorporates a combination of techniques involving stretching, compression, friction & trigger point techniques.
Taping & Kinesiotaping
Kinesiotape is said to correct muscle function, improve circulation of blood and lymph, reposition the joint and relieve pain. The science is slightly more involved than that. Kinesiotaping is not used as a substitute for treatment, it is another tool in the box that can be used at the end of a treatment in order to enhance the work done in that session.
Therapeutic ultrasound may help with acute and chronic conditions. Pulsed ultrasound is more superficial and may be used with more acute injuries, where sports massage would be contraindicated.
Continuous ultrasound goes deeper and may be used for more chronic conditions such as tendinitis (inflammation of tendons).
Muscle Energy Techniques & Assisted Stretching
Various assisted stretching techniques, such as PNF and MET, can be used to increase the flexibility of the muscle stretched and can improve/ re-establish full range of motion of a particular joint.
