Health Comes First
Osteopathy treatment is a complementary medicine involving the physical manipulation of the body's muscle tissue and bones. It involves a thorough history of pain and injury of the musculoskeletal system and applying the appropriate treatment plan to rehabilitate via manipulation of the skeleton in combination with the musculature.
Osteopathy takes a holistic, whole-body approach to healthcare. It uses manual ‘hands-on’ techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics, without the use of drugs.
Dry Needling is the use of acupuncture needles directed at muscular trigger points to initiate a healing response increasing new oxygenated blood to the area. Its effective for chronic or stubborn trigger points and can be used to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries or conditions. Dry Needling is a modality used in conjunction with massage to further increase the results of the treatment when suited. Unlike Acupuncture which works with energy, Dry Needling works purely on the muscular system and is scientifically backed by continual research in the field.
Chiropractic is complementary medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column, which are believed to cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy (SMT), manipulations of other joints and soft tissues.
Myotherapy is a manual therapy focusing on treating and managing muscular pain and dysfunction. Conditions they treat range from lower back pain, headaches, poor posture, injury prevention and sports recovery. A physical assessment can help identify the structures involved and allow the therapist to release with remedial massage, stretching, joint mobilisation and Dry Needling techniques.
Remedial Massage is a popular form of massage used to release tight short muscles and relieve deep aching muscular stiffness. Muscular pain can accumulate from day to day posture, stress, work nature or exercise and sport. Massage and trigger point release techniques are used to elongate short and tight muscles and increase joint flexibility which gets you feeling great again. Remedial Massage is also a great de-stress from our busy lifestyles.
