Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an effective technique often used in conjunction with other Physiotherapy treatments.

 

Fine pre-sterilised single use needles are inserted into specific points on the body, to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanism. This can be used to promote pain relief, reduce inflammation and reduce muscle tension, as well as enhancing recovery time.

 

Trigger point acupuncture is also used, to release trigger points (knots) and relax taught bands of muscle that can cause pain and tension.

Sports Massage

Various techniques are used to manipulate and release soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).

 

This can be beneficial prior to sporting events, to prepare the muscles and enhance performance. It can also be used after events to flush toxins and waste products from the muscles, which promotes recovery.  

 

Sports massage can also be beneficial for non-sporting injuries, injury prevention and to relieve postural related muscle tension.

Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation will have a different focus depending on an individuals' injury and their goals.

 

It can involve exercises to strengthen / stretch specific muscles, work on balance or improve range of movement.

 

Rehabilitation is important in the recovery of an injury or after certain operations, to achieve optimal results and prevent future injury.

Taping

Tape can be applied to reduce swelling and tension, provide postural or joint support, and to prevent re-injury.

Joint Mobilisation

Joint mobilisations involve gentle movements and glides on a specific joint.

 

Mobilisations stimulate blood flow and synovial fluid in a joint, therefore can be used to relieve stiffness, reduce pain and improve range of movement.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that fires high energy sound waves which are transmitted to the affected area to accelerate healing. The treatment increases blood flow, decreases localised pain and stimulates cell regeneration - this encourages the body to repair itself. Shockwave can also break down injured tissues and calcifications.
