Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles through your skin at various points on your body. Traditional Chinese medicine explains Acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force believed to flow through pathways in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, Acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
Our experienced Physiotherapists are trained in Acupuncture and will treat within the Western Medicine framework, using Acupuncture alongside other Physiotherapy techniques to relieve pain and reduce muscle tension or even spasm. Contrary to what many might believe, Acupuncture is not painful and people can find it very relaxing. Acupuncture has been shown to be effective for calming and even improving sleep.
If you’ve recently had a fall, are worried about potentially falling or are less mobile than you would like to be, we have a falls prevention programme which is led by Physiotherapists and is designed to improve mobility and reduce the risk of falls. The programme includes an initial assessment followed by a six-week exercise class programme to increase your strength, balance and agility. The classes are group classes and exercises are tailored to individual needs and abilities. After you complete the programme, our Physiotherapists can talk to your GP about your needs and provide them with an update. You also have the option to continue the classes to further improve and work towards other goals.
Lymphedema is swelling caused by an accumulation of lymph (protein rich fluid) which is normally drained by our lymphatic system. Lymphedema can range from being mild to severe, the most common causes we see are due to cancer or cancer treatment such as surgery or radiation. Our specialised Lymphoedema therapists can help to reduce Lymphoedema or manage current swelling by teaching you techniques, recommending equipment that encourages drainage, and manually helping to drain lymph fluid. Our therapists are trained in manual lymph drainage which using a massage-like technique to move trapped fluid in the swollen limb toward an area with working lymph vessels. They are also able to offer general advice on how to minimise your risk of having ongoing swelling
For some people pain is ongoing and debilitating. A pain service starts with a team approach to tailor individual programmes to help clients manage persistent pain. Through assessment the team will work with you to identify what you want to achieve, and from there create a plan of treatment services to achieve this.
The programme can have input from any of the following:
Sport and Therapeutic Massage
Massage is proven to reduce stress, relieve pain and lower blood pressure and heart rate. Our experienced and qualified therapists are experts in using massage to decrease pain and muscle tension, increase range of movement and enhance athletic performance. Our therapists are trained to diagnose specific joint or muscle problems and then develop a plan to help alleviate the pain and symptoms from injury, and if massage is an appropriate way to treat your injury then this will be provided. Massage can also be used to try prevent injuries from occurring from overuse or strain of certain muscles.
The vestibular system is made of the vestibular apparatus (the inner ear) and the brain. Together they are responsible for enabling us to maintain a steady gaze, maintain our balance, and prevent dizziness. Issues with the vestibular system can arise after injuries (like concussion or whiplash), infection or stroke.
Vestibular Rehabilitation is an exercise-based treatment programme that is designed to address the various problems caused by the vestibular system, and ultimately improve balance and reduce problems related to dizziness, vertigo, light headedness, and motion sensitivity. Our trained Vestibular Therapists can complete a full specialised assessment, determine the cause of your symptoms, and provide an individualised treatment plan.
