Sports therapy treatments include:

    Sports massage utilises a range of rhythmic techniques with varying levels of depth & intensity. Lighter strokes, used at the beginning of treatment, gradually get deeper & more intense to work into the muscle fibres. Sports massage can be an effective treatment for those suffering from specific chronic pain or who regularly undergo intensive exercise.
  • Joint mobilisations
    • A form of manual therapy aimed to address and treat joint restrictions & pain
    • Graded oscillatory movements that move joints through their ranges of movement to achieve desired effects
    • Can be applied to peripheral or spinal joints
  • Shockwave therapy
    • A non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that works by delivering sound waves to a specific target area
    • Increases blood flow to the target area resulting in cell regeneration & healing
