Localised neck and back pain as well as sciatica and referred pain into the arms or headaches. There are multiple sources of pain in the spine and treatment will be tailored to be effective on the source, be it muscle, joint, disc or nerve.
Muscle strains/tears such as hamstring, groin and calf. Ligament sprains such as ankle and knee. Tendon problems such as rotator cuff and Achilles. Cartilage problems within the knee, shoulder and hip.
Arthritic problems such as joint pain, swelling or stiffness and capsular problems such as frozen shoulders.

Rehabilitation after any surgery such as joint replacements, reconstructions, repairs or after breaking a bone.
Acupuncture is one of the main forms of treatment in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the use of sharp, thin needles that are inserted in the body at very specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body’s energy flow into healthier patterns to help to alleviate pain.
A systematic approach looking at the patient holistically to establish why people are suffering from daily pain and establish a regime to help the patient gain control off and alleviate their symptoms.
Full body analysis in various postures and under various loads to stress test the body to establish areas of weakness or vulnerability. Rehab programs can then be established to help to rectify these issues.
A biomechanical assessment permits evaluation of foot structure and function. Foot, ankle, knee, hip and low back pain can often be attributable to increased tissue stress, a consequence of compromised lower limb mechanics. Orthotics may be prescribed to reduce tissue stress and to promote more optimal function. In addition to other assessment techniques we employ a 3D scanner to ensure accurate capture of the contours of a foot.
