What we Do

Our physiotherapists are highly trained professionals who will listen to you.

We are able to assess and diagnose your injury and refer you onwards if indicated. Our aim is to restore your normal function and thereby alleviating your main concern “pain”.

Our Physiotherapists have had training in manual and manipulative therapy allowing us to treat you safely and effectively. So whether it's a sports injury, work related injury, recovery from surgery, recovery from a fracture or a sprain or strain, we are able to help you.

1. Acupuncture

This is the procedure of inserting thin needles into various regions of the body. Acupuncture helps balance the body and can bring about pain relief, reduction of tightness or muscular spasm and with it improved function

2. Manipulation/Mobilisation

The body works best with optimal range of movement. If there are limitations then Manipulations/Mobilisations can be used to restore the range of movement

3. Spinal Mobilisation

These are often used when people describe the problem as “their back is out” or they “woke up with a stiff neck”. 

4. Tailored fitness programs

Injury specific exercise programme’s aimed at restoring you to full function and fitness. The programme will be designed for you by your physiotherapist as part of your rehabilitation. The goals of treatment will be specific to what you want to achieve – optimal function with work, sport, play or daily. 

5. Massage

Massage is a traditional form of manual therapy where the soft tissues are manipulated and stretched by the therapist hands. Massage can aid in relaxation, recovery, improving blood flow and relieving muscular tension.

6. Manual Handling Training

A no nonsense hands on and practical program delivering immediate changes in the attitude and behaviour

7. OnSite Industrial Assessment

Many workers have jobs that are repetitive. The body try’s to become super efficient at that job to minimise effort. Unfortunately if your job involves lots of sitting then you tend to hunch over and this can lead to many things from sore necks to painful wrists.

8. Bio-mechanical “Warrant of Fitness” Assessment also know as “FMS" functional movement Screen

There is an optimal balance in the body that allows optimum function. If one area is tight or weak than others have to make up for it. Prolonged small changes in the body can lead to dysfunction and pain. The same way wheel alignment problems will lead to excessive tyre wear. Early intervention can identify these minor problem and prevent dysfunction. This applies to the office worker right the way through to the elite athlete. We can show you where the problems are and the best way to rid them from you day to day activities. Come and see one of our experienced team for some expert advice
