Sports and remedial therapy involves assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of soft tissue injury and muscular pain.
The focus is on remedial work, to ‘remedy’ the issue rather than just treat the symptoms, i.e where it hurts. This ensures we get you feeling and moving better with lasting results.
The site of your pain is all too often the ‘victim’ of compensations in the way you move rather than the problem itself. We need to assess the whole body to understand the real root of the problem, requiring a truly holistic approach.
Sports therapy is definitely not reserved for sports people and everyone can benefit from the assessment and treatment skills of my approach. If you experience chronic back or neck tightness due to your work or activity habits, suffer tension and headaches through anxiety or stress or feel that you have poor posture driving your pain I can help.
