Diagnosis of injuries. Normal procedure consists of assessing a patient's condition prior to the appropriate treatment direction. These biomechanical assessments assess an individual's joint function and bone structure for abnormalities that may contribute to a pattern of function that predisposes to injury. Spinal symmetry, limb length, hip knee and foot function with neurology factors
Stage by Stage Rehab Program
Joint Range of motion mobilisations to help to relieve pain and stiffness and encourage joints back to their normal function and position. Using Osteopathic Techniques and Spinal Therapy for nervous system improvements, in order to allow for full recovery from brain stimulus input and nerve stimulation.

Rehabilitation of work related problems such as neck ache and back pain and repetitive strain injury. Common muscular and joint complaints mobility problems, postural problems and work related conditions.
Sports Therapy has progressed from just treating injured athletes, to dealing with muscular-skeletal and joint injuries in all populations.
Sports therapy is an aspect of healthcare utilising the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes in the Rehabilitation process.
Approximately 90% of all sports injuries are non-surgical which makes specialist sports therapists an excellent initial point-of-contact for diagnosis.
Sports Massage / Soft tissue Massage
Releases muscle tension and restores balance to the musculo-skeletal system. Improves lymphatic flow. Breaks down lesions, separates muscle fibres, breaks down scar tissue. Reduce ligament and tendon stresses.
Spinal Therapy / Osteopathic Techniques
An emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft tissue manipulation are required with any injury. During Injury the nervous system will be somewhat affected and in order to work more efficiently will need to be incorporated in the rehabilitation process.
This is also the case if an injury is left untreated for a period of time. Nerve information that is transmitted from the brain to the rest of the body through the spinal column is situated in and below each of the 24 vertebrae joints of the spine, sacrum and the coccyx.
When the spinal column is correctly aligned, nerve information is passed accurately. If there is a disruption and any part of the spine becomes misaligned, then nerve function may become impaired.
The techniques combine Traditional Oriental concepts with the scientific evidence based Western style of acupuncture in order to influence physiological functioning of the body.
Western acupuncture is focused on releasing muscle tension by treating specific trigger points and stimulating the healing process where it may be naturally poor in areas such as the junction between tendons or ligaments and bone. The process involves the insertion of fine needles through the skin deep into the underlying fibrous scar tissue in which general massage palpation may not be able to directly impact. This will aid the break down and increase blood flow and oxygen to the area.
Traditional acupuncture involves the insertion of the fine needles into acu-points situated on 12 lines of energy around the body called Meridians. This is based on the belief that energy (life force) flows through the body known as Qi. Acupuncturists who adhere to traditional beliefs about acupuncture state that when Qi cannot flow freely through the body illness can be caused and subequent acupuncture is needed to restore the flow and thus restore health.
Most efficiently used in the early stages of rehabilitation. Breaks down scar issue and reduces pain and swelling. Helps to prevent venous thrombosis, encourages wound healing and drug delivery.
Ultrasound Therapy is used to treat soft tissue injuries from muscle tearing, ligament and tendon issues.
Interferential Therapy uses a mid-frequency current for treating muscular spasms and strains stimulating the secretion of endorphins, the body's natural pain relievers, leading to the relaxing of the strained muscles and promoting soft-tissue healing.

"I have seen Kieron several times with an onging shoulder injury. Along with my golfer's elbow injury this has been cured and is back better than ever. I would recommend regular treatments like I have had which keep my body free from injury and active for training and working life. A bad posture had be developed over time through work which is now under control and pain-free."

"I have visited the clinic regularly for 2 years. This enables me to work and exercise pain-free. I had a lack of mobility in my knee, after a course of intense physiotherapy and acupuncture I was able to perform back to the best of my ability. Lower back pain was also present which lead to sciatica. With the success of the treatment I was able to stop taking my prescribed pain killers.
Regular sports massage at Injury Therapist for maintenance keeps me mobile and pain-free"
