I setup this clinic to provide a better service for local people. I believe in self management, functional treatment strategies with clear goals and empowering clients to take control of their injury.

We offer physiotherapy, sports massage and acupuncture because I truly believe through evidenced based practice that these all have a therapeutic use and work as methods of treatment to reduce pain, improve function and return to sport or daily activities.

Physiotherapy is best for people who have an injury and either want a diagnosis, treatment and management plan. Or, have begun this journey but may have got lost along the way or the pain and/or injury has reoccured.

Physiotherapy is more than just exercise. Exercise is the key and more important tool to improving patients and reducing pain and vary significantly from traditional isolated strength exercises, endurance, cardiovascular, static stretches, dynamic stretches and exercises to improve control and the ways in which you move.

 

Physiotherapists use a combination of manual therapy, sports massage, acupuncture, exercise and most importantly advice on understanding your injury, pain and problems. From this we work together to maximise how much you can do, as soon as you can and improve until you feel fighting fit.

Sports massage is best for people with either general or specific muscular aches and pains and want to release stress and tension from sitting for long periods at work, manual jobs, sporting injuries and people training hard.

 

Sports massage has many names including soft tissue, deep tissue, myofascial release and similar concepts such as trigger pointing and stretch-release techniques. I use a combination of all of these in each treatment as appropriate and this is often guided by the patient's goals.

Acupuncture has ​two main variations. The first is dry needle acupuncture which has the same principles as massage (see above) to stimulate blood flow and to encourage muscles to relax and release. This is often both more effective and more uncomfortable than sports massage.

 

The second is traditional Chinese acupuncture where meridians and energy channels are used to restore your body's balance. This can be used for any injury and also medical conditions and has been used for almost 3000 years in China.

 

I use this technique for muscles, joints, tendon, ligament and nerve injuries as well as pain. I can also incorporate acupuncture into physiotherapy and sports massage treatments as appropriate.

We also have a blog on chronic and low back pain and how to change your thinking with common misunderstandings.
