METHODS

manual-therapy2.png
Manual therapy

A hands-on approach with the aim to improve range of motion, normalize muscle imbalances and reduce pain in order to restore the normal pattern of movement.
We will proceed to a careful assessment and determine which techniques will be used and may include joint mobilization, manipulation, muscle energy/myofascial techniques or any other soft tissue work.

Deep tissue massage

As the name suggests this therapeutic method is performed  aiming for deeper layers of the tissue, specially the muscle layers.
It involves slow/deep/intense pressure from the therapist and a wide array of techniques in order to release muscle tension and reestablish its balance.
This can target anyone with muscle pain or for the athlete requiring maintenance after his practice

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is an alternative medicine performed by a specialized physician or physiotherapist that aims to improve and individual health or wellness by treating the person as a whole, not just a specific "condition" or disease. It operates under the principle that the proper functioning of joints, ligaments, nerves, muscles and connective issue is the key to heal and improve.
Osteopathic methods include a wide range of hands-on mobilization /  manipulative techniques that can be used to treat a variety of health problems whether musculoskeletal or not.
It can be performed as something on its own or as a complement  to your physio treatments.

I wanted to thank for the excellent treatment I received. I am sure I would not have been able to play the whole week without the physio.

They not only followed up on my UK treatment, but also expanded on some other issues that may have led to or exaggerated my gluteal tendinopathy.
