PHASES OF CARE

1. Release tight tissue and reduce pain and inflammation and work towards correcting any dysfunction.
Phases 2 and 3 are Rehab working alongside treatment. 
2. Introduce activation of ‘lazy’ muscle tissue 
3. Integrate functional movement patterns teaching you to move intentionally and not habitually and to maintain great functional health.

ASSESSMENT AND PLAN OF ACTION

Full static and functional assessments start the process gaining information regarding any apparent dysfunction in order to arrive at the best possible treatment plan for you. We then discuss and agree our treatment options together before continuing. Throughout your treatment you will be continually assessed and reassessed to ensure we are moving in the right direction together.

SPINAL MOBILISATION

I have always visualized the spine as a ‘chain link’, an intrinsically flexible and supportive structure. If one link comes out of line in your bicycle chain, you would passively move each link in the chain until they all released and settled in position. This is mobilising.

 

As a practitioner I have one pair of hands and you have 24 spinal joints which should be flexible and mobile. I could not do enough work in any one session to achieve the necessary release, unless I use the ASMI.

SOFT TISSUE TECHNIQUES

I use a variety of techniques to produce the most positive outcome for you and these may include:-

 

  • Myofascial release and massage techniques 

  • Muscle energy techniques 

  • Trigger point release 

  • Stretching and Mobilisation 

  • Motion Palpation with manipulationI ASTM

  • Instrument assisted soft tissue massage   

  • Trigger Point Dry Needling ( Acupuncture )    

  • Modalities to reduce inflammation and muscular spasm

REHABILITATION

As we progress with Phase 1 of your treatment plan focussing on reducing your pain and encouraging full range of motion, we begin to integrate Phase 2. Activation of certain muscle groups, stimulating sensory nerves and to rehabilitate via motor repatterning.

Our aim is to return you to full functional fitness in the shortest, safest timeframe.

K-LASER THERAPY

K-Laser Dynamic therapy uses several pulse frequencies to produce a combination of analgesia, inflammation reduction, biostimulation and antimicrobial effects, thus accelerating the regeneration of tissues and increasing cellular energy. Cells are then able to thus absorb nutrients more quickly and eliminate waste substances. As a result of the exposition to laser light, the cells that constitute tendons, ligaments and muscles are repaired more quickly.

Rehabilitation equipment

Your health is not an expense, it's an investment!

How do I work?

 

Several treatment techniques are used in order to obtain the very best results for you in the shortest and safest time frame. Treatment methods will always be discussed and agreed before commencing. My clinical philosophy is based on my strong belief in treating your specific needs and helping to rehabilitate via motor re patterning.

TREATMENT

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED

This depends on the severity and duration you have already been troubled by the issue in question.

Often I will suggest I see you twice a week for the first couple of weeks.

We will then re-assess and move on to 'Phase 2' or if required, continue with 'Phase 1' for a little longer.

This will maximise the reduction of pain during the first phase of care.

Phase 2 and 3 require you input so, the harder you work, the better the results.

Investing in your own health is an important part of your recovery.

REGULAR MAINTENANCE

We can discuss any individual treatment maintenance requirements as many people prefer to 'keep a check' on their posture and function following an injury.

After all, we must 'service' our car at regular interval's and not just wait for it to breakdown !
