We can use a myriad of different manual therapy techniques applied to muscles, ligaments and joints to improve movement.
Manual therapy is essentially the “hands on” aspect of treatment. It encompasses a wide range of techniques such as joint mobilisation, joint manipulation, mobilisation applied with active movement, overpressure applied with active movement and soft tissue massage.
We use well-researched principles of manual therapy.
We treat the general aches and pains that afflict any typical individual and family. From weekend sports injuries to pain with sleeping, from growing pains to aching arthritic joints. Consider us as your health care practitioners for every day muscle and joint pain.
You don't need a referral to see us for any such treatments. If necessary we can refer for relevant imaging tests like X-rays or MRIs. Furthermore, if you require higher level medical care we will consult your GP for further management with the appropriate specialist.
There are two types of soft, fibrous connective tissues in the human body that support muscles and bones. These are your tendons and ligaments.
Sometimes called wear and tear arthritis, osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. When the smooth cushion between bones (cartilage) breaks down, joints can get painful, swollen and hard to move.
