Assessment:

At your first appointment, your physio will take a thorough  history of your problem and ask detailed questions about the behaviour of your symptoms and relevant medical history.

Your physio will then observe, examine and test various movements and structures in order to diagnose your problem and establish  the cause of your problem.

A treatment plan will be discussed with you and implemented  to get you back to normal pain-free movement in the shortest possible time and to help prevent  the problem occurring again.

Please remember to bring any relevant scans, X-rays or medical reports  with you for your first appointment.

Pilates

Pilates improves posture and alignment, flexibility, strength and core strength and helps reduce stress.

Pilates provides a safe and effective exercise programme useful for patients with spinal and joint problems. It concentrates on the core postural muscles, which are essential for supporting the spine, and teaches specific strengthening of these deep muscles and awareness of spinal alignment.

Pilates is a holistic approach promoting better posture and balance and, as such, can be an invaluable component of healing back and neck pain.

A wide variety of joint and muscle problems may benefit from Pilates including:
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sporting injuries
  • Recurring pain
  • Chronic pain

Massage Therapy

Massage can help to alleviate pain, restore movement and promote relaxation. It releases tension and stiffness in strained or restricted muscles, ligaments, tendons and soft tissues and is beneficial for overall well-being.
