We believe in the selective skilful use of manual therapies and soft tissue therapies as part of an effective treatment plan with your Physiotherapist.
Our clients love to feel relief of acute symptoms and increased range of movement, helping kick along recovery.
Manual Therapies include
Mobilisations – passive joint glides to ease stiffness, increase movement and reduce pain, these can be very gentle to very firmly applied. There are a vast array of techniques applied to all musculoskeletal areas of the body.
Manipulations – high velocity thrust techniques which usually generate a pop (cavitation), these are sparingly used where indicated after careful screening
Soft Tissue Therapies
Massage techniques – myofascial release, trigger point therapy, frictions, deep tissue therapy, effleurage) (link to remedial massage techniques)
