This is a gentle technique done on joints (the ligaments/capsule) to relieve
pain and increase movement. It is a step down form manipulations. We do manipulations
for the pelvis region and the low part of the spine (Lumbar spine).
are a number of acupuncture points in the body that work extremely well when
used in combination with physiotherapy. This service is of no extra charge to the patient. It is our belief to treat
the patient entirely and as a whole, so it is wonderful to be abel to offer
this extra relief for people.
Release / Soft Tissue Massage
Fascia is a tissue that surrounds all of our muscles and it can get very tight
and painful. The tightness can cause limitation of movement and the physio.
can see this when she assess’ the patient. Based on the assessment a
technique called myofascial release is used to the untrained eye it can look
and feel like a massage.
We have completed advanced courses in orthotics assessment. An orthotic is
a device placed in your shoe to keep your foot in proper alignment so as to
prevent and treat certain conditions relating to the foot, ankle, knee, hip
or back. We can make temporary or permanent ones and if you are not happy
with your device we offer a full money back guarantee.
We have TNS machines, ultrasound, interferential, laser. All used as and when
needed to reduce symptoms. We sell TNS machines and give a full demonstration
on how to use them including pictures of where to place the electrodes and
the different settings to get the most out of your machine. We have had super success form them and it has helped patients to control
their pain independently at home thus meaning they require less physiotherapy
visits except for cases of extreme “flare ups” thereby helping
to keep medical costs down for clients.
Although we do not prescribe any remedies we would be glad to advise you on
which ones would compliment your physiotherapy treatment. All of which can
be obtained over the counter at most pharmacies. Again this advise is included
in all treatments.
