What I Do
Regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle are key to managing musculo-skeletal conditions. I will carry out a thorough assessment on your first visit which will help me to understand what the problem is. Once I have done this I will explain what I think is causing the problem and the various treatment options available. I will then work with you to develop a manageable exercise plan along with treatment and injury specific advice. I am able to assess and apply a number of treatment techniques, including manual therapy, manipulation, electrotherapy, soft tissue releases and sports massage. I can also advise about whether you may need any equipment or orthotics to assist you in your recovery.
I work closely with local GPs and consultants, and may sometimes recommend referral to these specialists if needed.
