At our physiotherapy clinic all our physiotherapists practice acupuncture and we are all members of the Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.

acupunctureOriginating in China around 3,000 years ago, acupuncture is the oldest documented form of medicine known to man.

There are two generally held views on how it works. The traditional Chinese view is that it helps free blockages in the flow of Qi energy around the body.

acupunture_2The western view is that it works by stimulating the body’s own painkillers such as endorphins and encephalins, and that, although initial pain relief may only be short term, repeat treatments can bring long term benefits.

Recent scientific evidence showing that it clearly works – even though there is no overall agreement on how, or why, it is now widely used to treat muscular/skeletal pain.

Experience has shown that it not only treats the symptoms but can often deal with a problem at its root cause. At our Practice, acupuncture can be administered either as a treatment in its own right, or as part of an overall programme of therapy.

ergonomic-assesmentAs a direct consequence of today’s lifestyles, many of us spend much of our time sitting – often for hours at a time.

Whether it’s at home, at our desks or in a car, prolonged sitting is one of the biggest contributory factors in neck and lower back pain – often further exacerbated by slouching in poor posture.Whether at work or in the home, poorly set-up workstations can lead to many painful posture related injuries and conditions.

Postural low back pain can be the source of more significant back problems, such as disc problem.

Simple corrections to the height and angle of your desk, chair and keyboard, etc. will reduce the risk and amount of stress on muscles and joints. Our therapists can assess your workstation, suggest any necessary changes and help you adapt your posture, helping to minimise the incidence and severity of any injury and even preventing it from occurring in the first place.

knee-injuryBiomechanical assessment involves analysing the structure, alignment and function of the foot, ankle, knee, hip and lower back, under both weight bearing and non-weight bearing situations.

Over a period of time, or as a result of abnormal or increased stress on the body, altered or poor biomechanics will put pressure on certain parts of the lower limbs, eventually causing pain.

Injuries can be prevented by correcting these biomechanical instabilities. However, once someone is already injured, it is important to correct any predisposing biomechanical factors to ensure the cause of the injury is targeted effectively.

body-motWhether you are looking to maintain or increase your current exercise regime, or thinking of taking up a new challenge, your goal will be much easier if you are not held back by injury.

A body MOT is comprehensive and individualised assessment that targets the areas that will be under the most strain from the activities you are doing or planning to do.

Depending on its findings, our physiotherapists will develop strategies for you to minimise the risk of injury through a range of techniques including biomechanical correction, mobilisation, stretching and strengthening exercises.

spinal-therapyThe McKenzie approach to Physiotherapy is a comprehensive assessment, diagnosis and treatment concept for the management of spinal conditions.

This approach focuses on a ‘cause’ and ‘effect’ relationship between historical pain behaviour as well as the pain response to repeated test movements, positions and activities during the assessment process.

With this vital information, our physiotherapists will be able to provide you with a specific exercise programme that you will be able to perform easily to reduce your symptoms when required, thus decreasing dependence on a therapist.

Juliet Moss is one of the three founding members of the McKenzie Institute in the UK, set up in 1985. She has taught this technique widely in the UK & Europe.
