After conducting a thorough assessment, treatment may involve one or more of the following:

  • specific exercise programme
  • manual therapy
  • an explanation as to how any pain can be managed
  • alternative therapies (e.g. acupuncture / pilates)
  • we will explain and demonstrate how you can contribute to your own recovery and prevent the problem from recurring.

Long term recovery

This assessment will highlight imbalances of muscles and joints and identify faulty movement patterns which can be addressed by a comprehensive programme of treatment.
