Specialty physical therapy methods

Our practitioners and therapists use a combination of techniques when considering the whole body to achieve the best results.

Manual Therapy

This form of therapy involves the manipulation and stretches by the therapist of the muscles and joints and can  relieve pain, improve range of motion and decrease inflammation.

Therapeutic Exercises

Prescribing strengthening and progressive range-of-motion exercises is a great way for practitioners to heal conditions where muscles, joints and connective tissues have been torn or broken eg. orthopedic, knee or ligament injuries.  They are a valuable tool to recovery.

Education and advice

The way you use your body on a day to day basis can have a major effect on the way your body can recover in the long term..  Being taught by a qualified therapist how to understand your movement habits including how you walk, hold your posture and lift objects enables you to modify your patterns while you heal.

Soft Tissue Mobilisation and massage

Massage techniques including soft tissue mobilisation (STM) where the therapist uses specific hand pressure and rhythmic movements to release muscle and tendon tension, fascia, contractions, reduce and breakdown scar tissue and improve the general relaxation of the body.

Ice and Heat

Having manually released the body a practitioner will often use heat or ice to reduce inflammation and pain.

Acupuncture and acupressure

Releasing the trigger and energy points in the body with the skills of  acupuncture and acupressure are tools the therapist can use to manage pain, relieve muscle tightness and reduce inflammation in your body. It is an integrated holistic approach to treatment using both Western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
