Manual therapy techniques such as joint mobilisations and manipulation to restore normal joint motion.
Myofascial release and Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into muscular and soft tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Instrument Assisted soft tissue mobilisation using the Kinnective tool; which is a stainless steel instrument used to detect and treat soft tissue restrictions and adhesions. The stainless steel resonates at the optimum frequency to allow the clinician to have maximum quality of feedback from the tissue treated. The tool enables abnormalities and areas of tissue dysfunction to be highlighted and magnified, allowing treatment to be focused most effectively.
Muscle Activation Work
Muscle Activation work using the Be Activated Technique. This assessment starts by testing what your body is doing now, so that changes can be clearly measured. This is done by simple muscle resistance, strength and flexibility tests. It then uses key activation reflex points to allow the muscle system to activate in the correct sequence; allowing you to work effectively and efficiently.
Acupuncture is a treatment derived from ancient Chinese medicine in which fine needles are inserted at certain sites in the body for therapeutic or preventative purposes.
