Whether back pain, sport injury, inflammatory or degenerative conditions, the essence of our protocol is treating the body as a whole, as opposed to constituent parts. Reason being that problems in the body’s framework can disturb the circulatory system or nerves to any part of the body and affect many health aspects. Therefore, mechanical problems, such as restricted movement or contracted soft issues, may lead not only to aches and pains in joints and muscles, but also to disturbances in internal organs.
After taking a detailed medical history from the patient, our practitioner will assess the whole body to diagnose the root cause of the symptom(s). Musculoskeletal therapy, which uses both holistic and specific methods, isn’t aimed at symptomatic relief, but helps the body function better in all respects. Patients often report enhanced wellbeing, energy levels, sleep patterns, as well as other symptomatic improvements which weren’t the primary source of pain/discomfort.
To summarise our one-of-a-kind therapy designed to avoid surgery: we integrate physiotherapy, osteopathy, musculoskeletal medicine, exercise physiology and spinal medicine. Treatments vary from subtle to fairly gentle and are suitable for everyone. The hands-on techniques include traction, massage, manipulation, mobilisation, inhibition and muscle energy techniques. Depending on presentation, modalities such as electrotherapy, dry needling and acupuncture also are used when appropriate.
