Treatment

Treatment

I use a variety of treatment methods, usually combining techniques which complement one another. Those commonly used include manipulation and mobilisations, therapeutic ultrasound, electrotherapy including TENS, Galvanic & Interferential treatment, trigger point & massage techniques, passive and active stretching. I will prescribe specific exercises for you which will address any biomechanical causes, correct the soft tissue changes that occur with injury, aid healing by boosting circulation, rebuild weaknesses and prevent re-injury. Exercises are always functional and tailored to your lifestyle and other commitments. In addition I will discuss other ways that you can help the problem at home, either through self treatment such as heat or ice, avoiding specific activities and training techniques and plans. At follow-up treatments we will re-assess key findings from the initial appointment and progress treatment accordingly, including home exercises, to further aid your recovery.
