Acute or chronic pain and restriction of movement can result in limiting your lifestyle. We assess not only the painful part but all associated parts of the body to not only find the source of the problem but resolve secondary issues. Treatment is often a multifaceted approach to resolve all possible aspects of your condition and allow you to return to your fullest activity.
Joint mobilisation and manipulation can help to restore range of movement and relieve pain.
Manual techniques applied to the soft tissues of the body, such as deep tissue massage and myofascial release, can improve flexibility of soft tissue allowing pain relief and improved mobility to enhance recovery.
