Treatment may involve any of the following spinal injury
Treatment is aimed at getting you back into sport at the earliest opportunity, whilst working on future prevention through stretching and strengthening regimes.
Spinal manipulation or mobilisation
A degree of spinal adjustment like chiropractic or Osteopathy. Techniques vary from very gentle fine touch movements of mobilisation and stretching to manipulation
Relaxing soft tissue massage to relax muscle tension and facilitate mobilisation. Deeper soft tissue massage to reduce swelling, fibrosis, scar tissue formation etc.
Graduated joint mobilisation of restricted joints such as frozen shoulders.
Stretching of restricted neural tissue e.g. sciatica
Mechanical or manual spinal stretching to relieve compression in the neck, low back and hip.
All needles used are sterilised disposables. Acupuncture can be used for any condition if it is felt this is the most appropriate form of treatment. Particularly helpful with O.A. knees and sciatica
Electrotherapy including Ultrasound and laser
To reduce inflammation and pain and to accelerate the bodies own healing processes eg achilles tendinitis, tennis elbow, arthritic joints etc.
The use of corrective insoles to prevent lower limb problems eg knee pain, achilles tendinitis
A self help routine of stretching, strengthening and mobilisation is given in most cases.
You will be advised as fully as possible how to deal with your condition and how to reduce the risk of a recurrence in the future eg posture and ergonomic advice on prevention of spinal problems at work.
We have three purpose built, light and fully equipped treatment rooms.
