Spinal and extremity manipulation

While most therapists might mobilize a joint, not many are both trained and skilled in manipulating them. Manipulation is like the antibiotic of the neuromusculoskeletal system: while no one needs to have this treatment all the time, when you have pain or dysfunction it’s been proven to produce almost immediate improvement.

Dry needling

Dry needling involves inserting fine monofilament needles into muscles, tendons,ligaments, fascia or near joints, nerves and scar tissue. This technique has delivered proven results for many chronic and sub acute conditions including tennis elbow, knee osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, neck pain and low back pain among many others.

Prescription corrective exercises

Our therapists will develop, guide, and progress individualised restorative and corrective therapeutic exercisemost appropriate for you, show you how to perform them effectively and tell you how many you need to do, just as a doctor would prescribe medication. These exercises will not only aid in attaining optimal results,they’ll also help you to maintain your progress between visits and long afterwards.

Outcome-oriented service

Anyone can claim to get people better, but we actually track our effectiveness. Our outcome-oriented service uses the gold-standard, nationally recognized measure called Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes (FOTO), which allows us to learn which activities are most affected by your condition when you start therapy and tracks your improvement throughout your time with us.

Facts and figures

FOTO helps us quantify your improvement, plus it compares us to national and international averages for patients being treated for the same condition. It even helps us track the satisfaction of our patients.

This data is hugely valuable to us as it ensures our service is always the best it can possibly be, but it’s also critical to you, the patient. As you move through your treatment plan, it can help you see your progress and, more importantly, proves that we really are as good as we say we are!
