Sports Therapy deals with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to functional fitness, regardless of occupation, age or ability.
The human body is a complex collection of bones, muscles, nerves, organs and connective tissue. All these parts working together in harmony makes us what we are, and enable us to do all the things we do.
When these parts are not cooperating with each other, the result is disease and dysfunction.
Stress causes us to prepare for fight or flight. In reality that means we get up tight and remain on guard and never let go. Eg. We remain slumped working in front of a computer all day. Eventually over time, our brain thinks that that is the position we want to be in and we adapt our body accordingly. We then get backache, headache, neck ache, migraine etc.
Symptoms like these can be relieved by freeing tight muscles, tendons and ligaments. Soft tissues can also be relaxed using specific techniques. It is also possible to increase tone, strength and range of movement
So come see me at my Sports Therapy Clinic to receive the correct treatment and advice on how to keep fit, refrain from injury and stay healthy.
