Treatments we offer

We provide a wide range of treatments to cater for your needs. Not all patients respond in the same way therefore we aim to provide an individualised treatment plan and rehabilitation programme. Some of the available treatments are shown below. Please
note that a session may not include all of the highlighted treatments, but may include one or more of the following. Please contact us for more information.


Acupuncture is one of the many skills employed within physiotherapy as part of an integrated approach to the management of pain and inflammation. Physiotherapists base their treatments on scientific research and clinical evidence that Acupuncture can reduce pain by stimulating the brain and spinal cord to produce natural pain-relieving chemicals such as endorphins, melatonin (which
promotes sleep) and serotonin (to promote well-being), to name but a few.

These chemicals assist the body's healing processes and offer pain relief as a precursor to other treatments such as manual therapy or exercise in order to aid recovery.

Joint Mobilisations

Joint mobilisations are skilled passive movements applied to joints. These are applied at varying speeds and amplitudes and aim to
restore optimal motion, function, and reduce pain. Mobilisations can be used for virtually every joint of the human body.

Soft Tissue Therapy (Also known as Massage Therapy)

Massage is used to alleviate pain, reduce swelling and increase range of motion. Massage is commonly used to treat a number of problems including increased muscle tone/tension, active or latent myofascial trigger points and abnormal thickening of
connective tissue.

Spinal Mobilisations

Spinal mobilisation is a type of passive movement of a spinal segment or region. The aim of spinal joint mobilisation is to stretch small intrinsic muscles, ligaments and other fascial tissues at a specific segmental joint level. Spinal Mobilisations decrease pain and increase mobility.

Strengthening Exercises

Following injury surrounding tissues will be weakened, it is important to strengthen these tissues to prevent further injury to the area.

Stretching Exercises

Stretching is important to improve the flexibility of the surrounding tissues following injury. Gentle stretching should start as soon as pain will allow. In some conditions such as plantar fascitis stretching both the plantar fascia and calf muscles can have a big impact on reducing pain levels.

TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)

TENS is a method of providing pain relief. It involves the application of electrical current to the affected area. This is achieved via a number of electrodes that can be fixed to the skin.


Can be used to break up scar tissue and adhesions,reduce inflammation, swelling and calcium deposits. It create a deep heat to a
localised area to ease muscle spasms (much deeper than can be achieved with a hot pack - up to 5 cm). It can also increase soft tissue extensibility prior to stretching and exercise facilitate healing at the cellular level by improving blood flow.
