SPORTS THERAPY

WHAT CAN KINESIS SPORTS THERAPY OFFER?

Our treatment plans are bespoke to you and your needs. After a thorough examination and assessment, we recommend a comprehensive, integrated course of treatment, which may include one or more of the following:

Manual Therapy

Joint mobilisations of the peripheral joints or vertebral column, is the application of firm but gentle pressure to reduce pain and stiffness.

Manipulation involves "thrust" techniques that often cause joints to crack, resulting in immediate increase of movement and eases pain.

Neural mobilisations involve gentle gliding and tensioning of the nerves, commonly done with a mobilisation. It is effective in treating sciatica and upper limb tensions.

Other methods of treatment include; the mulligan technique combining hands-on therapy with exercise/ movement allowing joints to feel less stiff and move freely!

Functional Manual Therapy

Dry cupping lifts soft tissue, which increases blood flow and reduces muscle tension and pain. Cupping may leave temporary circular marks.

Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM) enables a therapist to breakdown adhesions within the muscle and fascia, improving range of movement and reducing pain through de-sensitisation.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation

Often clients with soft tissue injuries do not seek physical therapy until the injuries are more chronic. By this time, the body has completed most of its healing causing scar tissue.

 IASTM enables a therapist to breakdown these adhesions and therefore can treat a wide range of pain, mobility and neurological issues by:

Improving and facilitate lymphatic drainage and flow

Stimulating a local inflammatory response to aid a correct healing response

Improving range of movement, strength and pain perception

SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY/ SOFT TISSUE MOBILISATION/ MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

Massage techniques involve manipulating soft tissue, alleviating pain and maintaining healthy tissue. Release techniques can help break down "poor healing" that can occur with delayed treatment, helping ease muscle tension, reduce pain and improve mobility/ movement

CORRECTIVE EXERCISE

Exercise is the best way to get better faster! A tailored programme of stretching, strengthening, balance or coordination, supplements the treatment given in the clinic. Each element has a time and a place, you are your partner in your road to recovery!

Please note: clients will be coached through the take-home exercises.

KINESIOTAPING

Kinesiology taping optimises your body's function rather than limit it by providing support, correctional therapy or pain relief.

TAPING AND STRAPPING

Kinesiology taping may be used in some cases to provide support, correctional therapy or pain relief. Taping and strapping helps reduce the movement of an injured joint.
