Muscle & Joint Injuries

Manipulative therapy is used for joint injuries such as a sprained ankle or a painful back. The hands of the physiotherapist are used to mobilise (gently move) or manipulate (stronger movement) stiff or painful joints.

Muscle imbalance re-education - an assessment of muscle imbalance is undertaken followed by a program of exercises specific to the patient aimed at full recovery and prevention of further injuries. All parts of the body, including knees, back, neck, wrists and elbows can be treated in this way.

The treatment is focussed on the injured areas. Where appropriate a DBC programme may be recommended. Read more about DBC.
