Three Stages of Treatment

Pain is often the last symptom to arrive and the first to go. This often tricks the owner of an injury (you) into stopping treatment before the underlying causes have either completely resolved or you are in control of them. Without getting to this point there is a risk of re-injury.

As a result we look at your treatment over three phases to get the best result

Listen to how your problem happened and how it is affecting you
Assess the joints in the lower limb, hip, knee or ankle
Determine what structures are causing the issue, soft tissue or joint related
Muscle strength in your core and lower limb
Check balance and neuromuscular control
Nerve testing in the lower limbs

Initial Treatment: Specific, personnel, and targeted treatment to get you out of pain and moving well as soon as possible.

Preventing recurrence and building confidence and resilience by putting together a program for you to get the results you want.
