Physiotherapy

Every body is different. Therasport practitioners treat everyone as an individual. Before we start any form of treatment we will thoroughly examine your whole body to ensure that we give the correct diagnosis and then treat the correct source of the pain. It is only when we have done that we can start to treat you properly.

Treatment can include;

  • hands on manipulation
  • massage
  • exercises to complete under our supervision and at home
  • electrotherapy

Sometimes hands on physiotherapy isn’t enough and then we have a full range of electrotherapy equipment that can complement our natural treatments. Working in conjunction with our diagnosis, treatment advice, and the complete gym on site you can work at your own speed to ensure your treatment is successful. Our alternative treatments include;

  • gait scan
  • acupuncture
  • Isokinetic exercise

Gait Scan

Gait scan allows Therasport to assess how the way you walk or run is affecting your health. Thousands of tiny sensors detect how weight is distributed across your feet as you move. It enables Therasport to detect abnormalities in the way you distribute weight that could cause a variety of painful conditions such as shin splints, Achilles tendonitis or any manner of knee, hip or back problems.

The read out allows Therasport to recommend the right treatment, exercises to correct a defective walking pattern and whether or not an off the shelf or prescription orthotic could cure the problem.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an effective Chinese remedy that can step in when conventional treatment fails to alleviate the symptoms of;

  • Arthritis
  • Back/neck pain
  • Muscle problems
  • Migraines/ headaches/ stress related tension

Acupuncture works by stimulating the brain to produce endorphins which kick start the body’s natural pain relieving systems. It doesn’t work for everyone, but results can be astounding.
