- Chronic persistent pain conditions
- Rehabilitation after surgery or injury
- Mental health conditions presenting with pain, reduced mobility and limited physical function
Treatments Used Include:
- Mobilisation: Repeated movement of joints or soft tissues, to restore the normal joint motions that occur when we move. These are used to alleviate pain and treat stiffness and tightness when you can’t do this yourself.
- Manipulation: A small single thrust movement at the end range of a joints current movement, to treat stiffness and pain. It tends to be used in combination with other treatments to holistically manage your health needs.
- Manual Therapy: This involves the use of ‘hands on’ therapeutic soft tissue techniques to target soft tissue pain, tension/sensitivity, tightness, weakness and imbalance. These techniques are very useful at treating muscular pain and tension and soft tissue tightness, which in turn relieves pain and helps to restore movement.
- Acupuncture: This is a method of reducing or resolving pain, and is used for the treatment of injury or ill health. Fine, sterile needles are inserted into specific points to produce a therapeutic effect. It has been used in China for over 3000 years, and is used in Western medicine using a science-based approach.
- General rehabilitation: This involves analysis of your functional limitations, which may include difficulty with general mobility (e.g. walking, standing or climbing stairs) and tailoring treatment specifically to address your needs.
- Exercise Therapy: Used to directly target your problem, specific and general exercise may be suggested to help flexibility of soft tissues and joints, improve your balance and control and strengthen you.
