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.
In this four-part series, we will be looking to debunk any myths/misconceptions and provide a holistic representation of what a physiotherapist and what a chiropractor provides as a service to patients.
I'd like to introduce a four part series trying to best answer the question that many of our patients ask us.
