We treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and specialise
in sports injuries, spinal conditions of the neck and back,
headaches, post-operative rehabilitation as well as general
maintenance and conditioning of athletes.
Our typical treatment will consist of a "hands on"
soft tissue release as well as a joint mobilisation or manipulation.
We normally combine electrotherapy or accupuncture to the treatment
depending on the condition.
A comprehensive assessment is given in the first session and
exercise prescriptions are given in the following sessions.

maintenance and advice for athletes
As we age and our bodies degenerate, we become more susceptible
to illness and ailments which are often promoted by high levels
of inflammation in the body If pain and discomfort are your
everyday reality; if you're suffering from injuries or inflammatory
related conditions, then you should try cryotherapy.
WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?
A medical treatment that involves exposing patients to extremely
cold, dry air (between -120 and -160 degrees Celsius) for 2
to 3 minutes, in what is referred to as CryoSauna. Although
the treatment sounds extreme, it is completely safe and most
people find it pleasurable. Clients experiencing the dry air
find it more favourable than taking a cold shower.
Whole Body Cryotherapy is best understood when compared to
exercise. While one training session has an impact on the body,
it takes 6 weeks of frequent training to get fit and function
on an improved level. Similarly, people experience benefits
from cryotherapy sessions immediately but it also takes about
6 weeks of frequent sessions for the body to adapt and change
its physiology. Only then does the body function at a superior
level. People can expect to feel more energised, be less stressed
and recover much faster than before

Chiropractors are neuro musculo skeletal specialists, trained
in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal and joint disorders.
Chiropractors use specific adjustments to re-align joints in
order to restore normal biomechanics and remove any form of
irritation to the nerves that exit the spine, thereby reducing
pain and discomfort. Chiropractors aim at treating the cause
of the problem as opposed to treating symptoms.

Sportsmen and women, both elite and recreational, spend many
hours training their bodies to peak condition in order to perform
and achieve success in their chosen sport. But as Bryce Courtney
in the book The Power of One wrote: The mind is the athlete;
the body is simply the means it uses to run faster or longer,
jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit
further, or box better.
