Although Osteopaths treat many conditions, most people think of us as 'back specialists'. Back pain is what osteopaths treat a lot of the time. Osteopathic treatment does not only target symptoms but treats the parts of the body that have caused the symptoms. Osteopaths have a holistic approach and believe that your whole body will work well if in good structural balance. For further information click here.
Mostly associated with the treatment of chronic muscular and tendon disorders, back & neck pain & Trigger Point Treatment. Most common indications include; painful shoulder, epicondylitis (tennis/golfers elbow), low back pain, achilles pain & patellar tendonitis. Shockwave Therapy delivers high-energy shock waves to the tissue via the skin. Activates your body’s self-healing processes where pain occurs. Increases metabolic activity through improved blood circulation and the formation of new blood vessels. Nurtures and accelerates the healing process through cell regeneration.

Ultrasound is an oscillating sound pressure wave with a frequency greater than the upper limit of the human hearing range. Ultrasound speeds up the healing process by increasing blood flow to the treated area. It also decreases pain from the reduction of swelling and oedema.
Interferential uses a mid-frequency electrical signal to treat muscular spasms & strains. The basic principle of interferential is to use physiological effects of low frequency electrical stimulation of nerves without the associated pain. This helps to relieve pain, stimulate muscles, increase local blood flows and reduce oedema.

Low Level Laser Therapy
LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) is the application of red and near infra-red light over injuries or lesions to improve wound and soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain. First developed in 1967, it is now commonly referred to as LLLT. LLLT is used to: increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair; resolve inflammation and relieve pain (analgesia).

Sports & Remedial Massage Therapy is the management, manipulation and the rehabilitation of the body's soft tissues including muscles, ligaments and tendons using techniques that ensure effective and efficient results.
Acupuncture treats patients by insertion and manipulation of very thin needles to correct imbalances in the flow of qi by stimulation of anatomical locations on or under the skin called acupuncture points, most of which are connected by channels known as meridians.

Deep Oscillation is a novel principle of therapy which is based on the effects of an electrostatic field. It is known for its rapid, muscle-relaxing & pain-relieving effects and for its direct effect against microtrauma (muscle aches). When applying Deep Oscillation the tissue will be thoroughly "kneaded" by mechanical force. This effect will not even be reduced when applying minimal external pressure thus enabling the application e.g. in cases of acute trauma, or in the vicinity of open wounds.

Kinesio taping employs the application of specially designed taped in order to positively influence the movement of a joint or body area. Kinesio Taping’s key differentiator is its ability to aid the lymphatic and muscle systems. For many, the Kinesio Taping applications are a major breakthrough which substantially reduce recovery times and improve fitness levels. For further information click here.
