Explanation of treatments/techniques:-
Maitland, Mulligan and Cyriax mobilisation and manipulation techniques - manual therapy techniques developed by recognised clinicians to improve movements between joints, enabling more flexibility and aiding pain relief.
Kinetic Control - the use of specific assessment of movement patterns to discern overactive and weak muscles, and tight restrictive tissue forces which have tendency to cause recurrent problems. An appropriate treatment and exercise plan is then devised.
Muscle Energy techniques and soft tissue myofascial release - soft tissue manual therapies, of a more gentle approach that involve joint mobilisations directly or indirectly through the use of muscle contractions and relaxations to encourage normal movement and pain relief.
Corrective and facilitative taping - the use of tape to encourage muscle to relax or contract in a more efficient manor. Therefore, helping to promote normal movement and earlier return to required activities and sport.
Individual exercise prescription - specifically tailored exercise programmes for the presenting condition and clients individual needs.
Electrotherapy - input of energy, sound or electro-magnetic, to improve circulation and facilitate the bodies healing mechanism particularly in relation to inflammatory issues.
Ergonomic postural advice - advice and assessment on ergonomics related to work station environment and functional activities, to include issues associated with driving.
Acupuncture - the use of small, fine, sterile needles to directly affect local muscle tissue and encourage self healing and a homeostasis through its effect on the brain.
Chronic pain management - the use of relaxation and cognitive behavioural techniques, together with graded exposure to activity. This aims to address some of the reasons that the brain interprets pain and it becomes chronic. Acupuncture is often used in this context.
