Musculoskeletal therapy is designed to both prevent injury and also reduce pain caused by sports or other physical injuries, even those caused by normal day to day life.
Who is it for?
If you’re active in any particular sport then you’ve likely come across musculoskeletal therapy, but it is also recommended for anyone who is suffering from posture and movement dysfunction or pain. It can be used in a preventative as well as a curative way.
What should I expect?
Within the session, it is the therapists aim to identity the causes of the problem, so looking at the client as a whole it important. After a number of different tests, postural/ gait analysis and functional movement screening a detailed treatment plan will be discussed with the client. After-care advice is given to suit the specific aims of the clients, this can include an additional programme to work on in your own time to prolong the benefits of treatment.
