Treatment Information

Manual therapy techniques which are evidence based are used to treat musculoskeletal pain, stiffness and discomfort. We use a combination of joint mobilisation / manipulation, massage / trigger point / myofascial massage and will prescribe an individualised exercise program with self management strategies as part of this treatment.  Your treatment will aim to eliminate and/or control pain and stiffness, increase a range of motion and improve flexibility. This will allow inflammation to settle, muscles to relax and an improve of general function so that you can enjoy an active life.

Headaches can be debilitating and come in many forms: tension, sinus, cluster and migraine. We have various treatments available to our clients and will assess, diagnose and treat your headaches accordingly. There is growing evidence that headaches and migraines share a common disorder of the brain stem considered to be due to an irritated disc between the 2nd and the 3rd cervical vertabrae and dysfunction of the top three vertibral spinal segments which sensitise the brain stem. If your  headache or migraine is caused from upper neck joint dysfunction we may be able to treat this over time with gentle mobilisation of the appropriate spinal segments in a smooth, sustained manner to correct vertabral and cervical dysfunction. This specific treatment plan includes education around self-management, exercises, self-mobilisation strategies, posture correction and ergonomic considerations. Teresa and Zaheera have had incredible success with assisting Migraine sufferers. If you would like to imagine your life free from headaches and migraines, be sure to book an appointment to discuss a personalised treatment plan.
