Treatments

PHYSIOTHERAPY

The only way to treat musculoskeletal conditions. Unfortunately, many GP’s and consultants don’t know the benefits of physiotherapy yet. And who can blame them, if they had only been exposed to physio years ago and not realised the advances made. It is still a young profession which is constantly evolving with research and progression. This is only one of the reasons I am so excited about physiotherapy.

I love keeping up to date with the most current best practice. With more than 13 years experience and an insatiable hunger for continuous professional development, you can be assured of the best treatment. As part of a multi disciplinary team and great referral network of specialists, you will be well looked after, should onward referral be necessary at any point.

You are always the most important person in the team. It is crucial that you always understand the condition and process and that all your concerns are addressed. Please never hesitate to ask questions, discuss and even get second opinions. Communication is key.

 

SPORTS PHYSIOTHERAPY

From the world champion to the weekend warrior, I understand how important your sport is to you. Through accurate assessment, spot on manual treatment and early rehabilitation, we can set realistic goals to get you participating as soon as possible.  Sport or hobbies are not only important for your physical health, but also for your mental and spiritual health.  When you can’t do the things you enjoy because of an injury, your quality of life and overall satisfaction gets impacted. All the more reason to get to the root of the issue sooner, rather than later.

If needed at any time, you will be pointed in the direction of some exceptionally qualified strength and conditioning coaches for further support. It is important to fully rehabilitate and be confident before your return to sport, to prevent recurrence or re injury.  You will be guided and advised through this process.

It so often surprise me that people put up with pain and miss out on so much due to an issue that can be solved fairly easily.  Don’t be robbed of the enjoyments in your life.

 

REHABILITATION

Physio without rehab is incomplete.  In my opinion, this is the aspect of treatment where you will make the greatest gains, should you apply yourself fully.  It is important to correct those bad habits and restore good biomechanics to ensure full function and prevent recurrence of any kind.  It is worth making the effort and spending a bit more time with your physio to make sure you learn and rehab fully.

Rehabilitation is a process that starts at your very first appointment with some basic exercises, and continues until your full return to sport/activity.  Due to the nature of your injury and body, your rehab can be quite unique, so programs are tailor made and should be easily implemented.  Once again, your input is the most important here to ensure that all your concerns are addressed and your goals will be reached.

 

CLINICAL PILATES

Clinical Pilates forms the basis of every rehab program.  It is an amazingly effective way of retraining and correcting and it is actually great fun.

Classes are available, with no more than 3 to 1 physio, due to the unique need of every person.  1 to 1 sessions are also available.  These will be conducted in the martial arts dojo’s, equipped with thick padded mats and lots of space to move.  I want to challenge the cynical amongst us to try this.  I’m sure you will share my love for pilates after a couple of sessions.

And even if you don’t love it, you will certainly appreciate the benefits of practising it.

 

BACK PAIN CLINIC

To get your back back to health, we need to get back to basics.  It is important here to access exactly what is the cause of your back pain and treat this, instead of just calming the symptoms.  Statistics show that most people suffer some form of back pain at a point through their life.  I have certainly seen a lot of satisfied patients be rid of back pain after treatment and rehab.  It can be done and should be done.  Do not sacrifice your quality of life to something that can be resolved.

Demystifying back pain is a great part of the treatment.  You will be empowered with knowledge regarding the mechanism causing you pain and dysfunction, assisting you to take control of your body again.

 

RUNNING CLINIC

As a fervent runner, I pride myself in knowing the best techniques and methods to improve performance and prevent injuries.  You can benefit from my experience and learn from my mistakes.  Book an appointment for your running gait analysis or attend one of our regular running workshops at Tokei.  This will be a great help to a runner of any calibre.  It is best to sort out any niggles as soon as they arise. We also do a very informative Q and A session, addressing any controversial issues and newest buzz words in the world of running. It’s all very exciting, so do get involved.

 

WORK STATION ERGONOMICS

The importance of good ergonomics at your desk is directly proportionate to the amount of time you spend there.  Most of us spend more and more time at work, fuelling a downward spiral of exhaustion and poor posture, resulting in RSI and overuse injuries.  It’s not only important to have good equipment, i.e. desk, chair and keyboard, but have this correctly set up for you.

During an assessment, I will make the adjustments needed, give you some advise and break exercises and I will also supply you with a report for reference.  A small change can often make a big difference.

 

SPORTS MASSAGE

For those of you who need deep tissue release and stretches either in preparation for an event, recovering after an event or just for your wellbeing.  Massage is incredibly helpful.  The benefits will be tangible to you after your massage
