We treat many types of injuries and conditions including
- sports injuries
- neck pain
- thoracic pain
- low back pain
- postural problems
- pulled and strained muscles
- jaw (TMJ) problems
- dizziness and vertigo
- joint pain (hips, knees, shoulders, ankles, feet, elbows, wrists, etc.)
The basis of all good treatment is to first determine the cause of your problem. We take an accurate history including past events, accidents and recent activities, medications and the state of your general health. This is necessarily extremely detailed as many problems can arise from elsewhere in your body (think sciatica-type pain in your legs but originating from your back). Even minor details cannot be overlooked as they could well be responsible for effects elsewhere in your body.
We follow this up with an extensive physical examination, including joint, muscle and nerve testing, so that we understand your issue. Then we solve it.
We treat holistically. We seek to understand your story, we look at your injury, your posture and we need you to tell us how the injury is affecting your life so that we can get you back to your desired state of fitness and health. This ensures we prevent future injury and pain.
Your treatment will be discussed with you so that you understand and agree with the various types of treatment. These are varied but could include joint mobilisation or manipulation, stretching, dry needling, exercise, acupuncture, taping, Theraband and, occasionally, electrotherapy if required. All treatments are individually tailored for you.
We are very hands-on.
You will almost certainly leave with a list of exercises to do so that when you come back for follow-up treatments you will have maintained your good progress. These exercises will be written down, you may be referred to our useful exercise app program, or we will use your smartphone to video you while you perform your exercises under our watchful supervision.
