Your skilled practitioner will use targeted massage, adjustments or mobilisations and functional movement retraining. These elements will be tailored to your particular problem.

Lower back and sciatica pain is the leading cause limiting daily activities. Deconditioning from a sedentary lifestyle or over activity from repetitive movement often creates this pain. We treat both acute and chronic back pain and will diagnose the root cause of your pain.
Neck or back pain and the associated reduced movement relates to not only neck or back symptoms but shoulder and head symptoms as well. Headaches, hazy feeling, shoulder and arm problems could be coming from your neck or back.
The shoulder is the most mobile and frequently used joint in your body. Rotator cuff injuries, shoulder bursitis or tendon damage can result from either overuse or trauma to the shoulder. Furthermore, arm symptoms are a common side effect of shoulder problems.
The hip joint plays an integral role in how your back and legs feel. Hip bursitis, arthritis or gluteal muscle tightness can contribute or create hip, knee or back problems. Likewise, knee pain from trauma or degenerative changes effects not only the knee but the foot, hip and lower back also. Making it important to address not only the knee but the surrounding joints.
Never underestimate the importance of good posture and both pre & post operative/injury rehabilitation. The long term effects on movement and lifestyle of letting them slide will only become noticeable as we age. However the longer you leave it, the more work required to regain your lost movement.
Headaches are a common compliant. With recent data showing headaches as leading cause of chronic pain in the western world. Most adults will experience a headache yearly.
