physiotherapy

To me, Physiotherapy is the restoration of pain-free, optimal function and movement. To educate and empower everyone to understand how your body should and shouldn’t move and what it feels like to be in true control of your body. 

My approach is a proactive, preventative approach to the body as a whole. Rather than waiting for an injury to occur and then reacting to try and fix it as quickly as possible. My dream is for everyone to consider the necessary steps and actions they can take to reduce the risk of these injuries happening in the first place?

what to expect

In the first instance, we assess. Your movement, strength, function and posture are screened, abnormalities are identified and a treatment plan is prescribed. I provide an integrated service, using many different skills I have acquired including Physiotherapy, Sports Massage, Myofascial Release, Dry Needling, Corrective postural exercise as well as rehabilitation and Strength and conditioning exercises. What you can expect in each session is assessment, treatment, education and exercise prescription. I don’t believe in using only one method alone, I use many in conjunction with each other to ensure optimal results are obtained.

got more questions?

here are more answers

"how long will it take?"

This can vary depending on the area of the body and the stage of the injury. Acute peripheral injuries or minor soft-tissue injuries may be fixed quickly in a matter of sessions or a one-off, whereas long-standing injuries compounded over time with compensatory muscle imbalances may take several weeks.

"can I exercise before or after?"

Depending on the injury and the type of exercise you have in mind. I would not advise a runner to run on an injured hip, knee, or ankle. However, a low-impact or upper body strength session should not interfere with the injury and can be used with caution.

"what do I wear?"

 

Ideally, the areas which need to be worked on will be exposed and your modesty protected by a towel. If you are not comfortable with this, then wear loose comfy clothing, which your therapist can easily move to get to the target tissue.
