People can often be put off by the word 'sports' when it comes to finding the right treatment for them!
Our therapists are trained to degree level and specialize in the treatment and management of MSK injuries and pain. Sports Therapy utilizes a variety of 'hands on' treatment methods in order to promote your health and fitness. These methods include: Sports Massage, Joint Mobilisation/Manipulation, PNF Stretching, Myofascial Release, Muscle Energy Techniques, Trigger Point Therapy and Cross Fibre Friction Technique.
Our Therapists also are trained in exercise rehabilitation and strength & conditioning and with this knowledge can prescribe simple yet effective exercise regimes in order to strengthen and lengthen muscles and really boost the efficiency of your recovery!
You DO NOT have to be an athlete or even participate within a sport in order to reap the BENEFITS of the therapeutic interventions achieved through Sports Therapy at Gittins Sports Therapy & Wellness Clinic!
The techniques and treatments used are for ANYONE! Young or Elderly! Active or Sedentary! Male or Female! Physical Jobs or Desk Jobs! Injured or Injury Free!
When assessing our clients, we like to look into the 'bigger picture', our highly skilled therapists are trained to spot any abnormalities throughout the body that may be causing your aches or pains, we make expert judgements by assessing posture and movement patterns in order to see if there are any possible indicators that may be producing pain elsewhere across the body! So this could be foot position causing lower back pain, Myofascial Trigger Points around the back causing perceived pain down your arm, or pelvic position causing neck pain. We then aim to not only treat the problem area, but any abnormalities that may be causing the issue!
