REHABILITATION & MOVEMENT FITNESS

Rehabilitative exercises to maintain and improve the corrections performed at the treatment session.
 

NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT

Nutritional Supports aid in the recovery and improvement of tendons, muscles, and general health
 

STRESS REDUCTION

Various techniques to switch the nervous system back into a relaxed state.

TREATMENT SESSIONS

FOCUS

Acute (Initial) Stage - Reducing symptoms.
Restorative Phase - Assessing and increasing functional range.

TECHNIQUES

Joint manipulation and mobilisation
Soft tissue release techniques 
Muscle Energy Techniques
Cranial work
 

WHY

Treatment sessions target those areas which are near impossible to get to through exercise alone.  Adjusting or mobilising a joint increases its range of movement.  The greater the joint’s mobility, the greater ability it has to perform a desired movement. Soft tissue techniques are used to increase blood flow and tissue glide, stimulating the tissue to heal or function better.

REHABILITATION & MOVEMENT EXERCISES

FOCUS

Initial stages are about regaining function through a painless range of motion.  Restorative phase onwards focus is on correcting aberrant movement patterns that increase mobility and strength.
 

TECHNIQUES

Rehabilitative exercises for tendon recovery will go from passive stretches and isometric exercises through to eccentric and concentric loading.  Movement patterns and mobility exercises are then used with progressive difficulty to encourage greater freedom of movement and strength.
 

WHY

Progressing a muscle from passive stretches to eccentric exercise helps heal tendons and increase tissue strength.  Specific eccentric and concentric exercises will increase the functional capacity of the joint targeted, allowing for more diverse movement patterns to take place.  Nothing moves in isolation so global movement progressions are also used to help increase mobility and strength for better performance and injury prevention.

NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT

FOCUS

Identifying any deficiency or intolerance taking place that may be affecting the musculoskeletal system.  Progressing metabolic health through each stage of care.
 

TECHNIQUES

Nutritional advice regarding different eating habits.  Dietary changes that eliminate food intolerance alongside supplements which fill any nutrient gaps.
 

WHY

The musculoskeletal system relies on a good metabolic system for it to work efficiently.  If the body is inflamed due to a food intolerance or a nutrient deficiency, oxidative stress occurs causing changes in how the body repairs and lays down new tissue.  Metabolic stress can cause stiffness, poor healing, generalised aches, weakness, headaches, and decreased pain threshold.

STRESS REDUCTION

Repeater 4_edited.jpg
FOCUS

When the other bases have been covered focus may turn to identifying any patterns of stress that may be involved in the muscular tension.
 

TECHNIQUES

Mindfulness is initially encouraged so as you can be made aware of how stress is impacting the body.  Breathing and meditation techniques are used to help calm the nervous system.  Stress reduction techniques such as Neuro Emotional Technique are used for those individuals who want to work directly on those areas.
 

WHY

Muscular tension in the body can come from emotional tension.  It is sometimes essential to change the response to stressful stimulus to reduce the build-up of tension in the body.  Techniques aim to change the response to the stressful stimulus.  This means going from a sympathetic response (fight and flight) to one of a parasympathetic response (rest and digest).  When achieved the body has been shown to lower inflammation and fight off infections with greater resilience.
