OUR PAIN TREATMENTS
Whether we are treating plantar fasciitis in the base of your foot or headaches coming from your jaw muscles our core principles remain the same. Our approach to pain relief is flexible in the extreme, you wouldn’t think much of a gym if it only had one machine, you’d be wise to not think much of a pain clinic if it only had one treatment.
Our treatments include but are not limited to ….
- Myofascial release
- Joint mobilisation
- PNF stretching
- Percussion massage
- Mobiliser machines
- Scar tissue stretches & guasha
Pain is much like anything to do with the human body, one persons healthy snack is another person’s severe food allergy. We all have similar yet not identical needs in other words. Our treatment programs are more often than not an exploration of what your body requires in order to heal. We believe that it’s the fundamentals of integrity, determination and flexibility that enable us to get the results we do.
A fundamental principle that we hold dear is that of ‘pain relief’ being a different topic to ‘rehabilitation’. Pain relief is like getting a filling done at the dentist, a huge relief but with little or no preventative value. Rehabilitation on the other hand is anything designed to work more in terms of causality and prevent reoccurrence. Acupuncture needles may relieve your back pain but only exercises will strengthen your core and enable it to support your spine in the long term.
