Mobilisation

Gentle movement of joints to relieve stiffness of the joint and regain soft tissue
movement around it.

Soft Tissue Techniques

Movement of the soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons, connective tissue) is critical
in relieving pain and restoring normal movement. This can be achieved with various
techniques.

  • Deep transverse frictions
  • Myofascial release
  • Stretching
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Trigger point release
  • Massage
Electrotherapy
  • Massage machine
  • Ultrasound

Acupuncture

We practice traditional TCM acupuncture and trigger point dry needling. The
physiotherapists practicing acupuncture are all registered with and practice under
AACP guidelines.

Exercise Prescription/Home Programme

This is an integral part of treatment, patients will be given an individual home
programme with hand outs.

Postural Advice

A large percentage of problems that are seen can be attributed to poor posture, both at
home and at work. Emphasis is placed on understanding ‘good’ posture which may
involve teaching core stability (Pilates type exercise), adjustments that can assist at
home and work and an individual postural correction programme.
