Each patient's treatment and clinical management is tailored directly to them, taking into consideration their personal requirements and preferences. All of the treatment modalities we utilise within the clinic are non-surgical and drug free. However, if once we have examined you, we feel that your case would be better managed by a clinician external to the clinic (i.e GP, orthopaedic surgeon, rheumatologist, neurologist etc), appropriate referral can be made.
Examples of some of the treatment modalities we use INCLUDE:
Spinal manipulative therapy
Peripheral joint manipulative therapy
Peripheral joint mobilisation
Myofascial therapy (soft tissue work)
Postural & lifestyle advice
Orthotic & splint prescription
Cognitive behavioural therapy
Pacing & graded exposure
Rehabilitative exercise management:
Strength & endurance training
