We have always been passionate about being a 'hands on clinic'. Mobilisation and manipulations help to improve range of movement and decrease pain.
Ultrasound therapy uses soundwaves to help produce a faster healing response.
Dry needling works at releasing tight musculoskeletal trigger points that cause pain and tightness by targeting them with fine acupuncture needles.
Frequently seen on professional athletes taping techniques can help offload tight muscles, improve joint position and provide stability.
Vibration Plate Training
Whole body vibration therapy has shown it can help improve muscle activation and strength. It has recently been used by Astronauts on return to earth to help return strength to postural muscles!
Used by elite athletes worldwide the GameReady systems use cryotherapy and compression to reduce inflammation.
Using specialist rehabilitation equipment in our gym space we can assess how your body is moving and how that is affecting your injury.
Our percussion therapy devices use targeted vibrations to help release tight muscle tissue.
Muscle stimulation devices help to return activation and strength to muscles that are under active or weak. Especially useful after surgery when patients may be unable to weight bare.
Aided by video technology we can asses how you are walking and running and how it may be affecting your injury.
Blood Flow Restriction Training
Blood flow restriction training partial occludes arterial flow. It allows patients to train at high intensity without the need to load the joints with heavy weights.
Cupping therapy works to help release fascial tightness. A connective tissue that can cause tightness and pain.
I haven't seen my GP or a consultant can I still come for an appointment?
ABSOLUTELY! In many cases it is better to come straight to us then we can get you on the path to full fitness quicker
I have private medical insurance can you treat me?
YES we can indeed, we are registered with all major private healthcare insurers just let us know when you book. You need to contact your insurer first to gain a authorisation number and find your policy number. Let us know these numbers on the phone or when choosing the private medical insurance option through online booking write the policy number and authorisation number in the notes.
I have never been to a physio before, what should I wear?
You should wear clothes you are comfortable exercising in as we may want to utilise the rehabilitation gym. In the treatment room you should wear clothing that means we can accurately assess the area of the body we are treating, for example wearing shorts for a lower limb injury or a top with straps for a shoulder injury.
I have a very busy schedule how long will my session be?
Your first session will be 60 minutes* and then most follow up sessions will be 30 minutes unless otherwise suggested.
*all sessions covered by private medical insurance are 30 minutes including the initial appointment
I would like to book an appointment for my son or daughter who is under 18 is this possible?
Definitely, however under 18's must always have an adult present for their first appointment
Will you be able to tell me how many appointments I might need?
Sure, we do our best to give you an idea of how many sessions and how often you will need to come to see us. This may change as your injury progresses but we have flexible payment plans. You can pay for sessions as you go or make it cheaper and buy all you sessions upfront and best thing is, they don't expire! Even if we get you better before you have had all your pre bought sessions you can use them at a later date for further physiotherapy or any of our other services like sports massage.
