Services & Descriptions

Sports Therapy includes a range of different treatment modalities to prevent injuries, rehabilitate injuries and to help to maintain an individuals mobility and general movement to optimise performance.

Following a thorough assessment to develop a clinical diagnosis, physical therapies such as joint mobilisations, massage and exercise therapy will be applied where applicable.

Sports Therapists utilise the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare participants for training, competition and even work.

Deep tissue massage techniques such as effleurage, petrissage and myofascial release are used to treat specific muscle groups, catered to an individuals needs.

Some of the benefits of sports massage include; improved mobility, muscle tension release, scar tissue reduction and removal or metabolic waste from the muscle tissues.

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation

The specially designed stainless steel IASTM tool massages and scrapes the skin to cause muscle fibre separation and provide a mobilising effect to scar tissue and myofascial adhesions.

This treatment aids in the recovery of soft tissue injuries and restrictions. Benefits of IASTM are increased blood flow to enhance the healing response, reduction in inflammation and increase mobility.

The applied kinesiology tape is used to create a lift to decompress the underlying tissues beneath the skin. In turn this enhances the flow of lymphatic fluid which reduced swelling to the injured area.
