A thorough injury assessment will be conducted which involves subjective history taking, followed by an objective and functional assessment. From this information a clinical impression is formulated, from which an appropriate evidence based management plan will be developed. This will be tailored to your individual needs
My primary method of my soft tissue techniques involves deep tissue massage. Deep tissue massage has been proven to help prevent injuries and loss of mobility, cure and restore mobility to injured muscle tissue and enhance performance. It can be used for rehabilitation, events and maintenance. Additional manual techniques I use include myofascial release, deep transverse friction massage, mobilisations and trigger point therapy.
I aim to bring together a variety of therapeutic techniques, knowledge and advice to ensure you gain optimum recovery and minimise the risk of injury.
Kinesiology taping was developed by a Japanese chiropractor Kenso Kase in the 1970s as a method of assisting physical treatment of damaged tissue while maintaining full range of motion, unlike traditional taping methods, which restrict movement. Rocktape is a brand of kinesiology tape which can be applied to you to aid recovery, enhance performance, reduce swelling or to improve posture.
When the tape is applied with sufficient stretch longitudinally, a biomechanical uplifting mechanism is created which in turn increases the space between the skin and the underlying connective tissues, vessels and muscles to improve mobility and aid lymphatic and venous movement. The uplifting mechanism also has an effect on the underlying fascia, reducing pain, decreasing susceptibility to micro trauma and improving muscle performance.
The variety of treatments I provide aim to ensure all my clients gain optimal recovery from almost any musculoskeletal injury, whether acute or chronic.
