How will our services benefit your performance?

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

Physiotherapy is a science-based healthcare profession that promotes recovery in illness, injury or disability. It aims to restore movement and functional ability to the person’s full potential.

SPORTS MASSAGE FOR RECOVERY

A constant build-up of tension in the muscles from regular activity may lead to stresses on joints, ligaments, tendons, as well as the muscles themselves.

Muscle fibers adhesions, scar tissues, edema, a rigidity of superficial fascia can all be addressed with such treatment. Received regularly this type of treatment may help prevent injuries, which might otherwise be caused by overuse.

However, to be able to offer a remedy, the therapist must do more than just relieve pain; he/she must also be able to understand how the problem came about and how it can be avoided in the future. This is why sports massage treatment is frequently used in conjunction with osteopathic treatment.
