What is an INITIAL CONSULTATION?

A range of structural tests we will be used to be able to diagnose injuries and we can also complete fitness tests to be able to understand where your current fitness levels are. Once this has been completed we will then return to discuss our findings and where we go from here. This may be a case of hands on treatment including Sports Massage, Mobilisations, Electrotherapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Cryotherapy, Heat Therapy, Muscle Energy Techniques and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation. We then may and go utilise the gym equipment to be able to show Stretching and Strengthening Techniques to be able to complete at home or in your own gym. This then could lead us on to completing Strength and Conditioning for you injury to enhance your rehabilitation. On request we will be able to then create a rehabilitation plan dependant on your needs.

It has also been linked to increasing white blood cell and serotonin levels, which boost weak immune systems and improve a person’s feeling of well-being and happiness.
