What you can expect
A thorough subjective interview allows us to tease out important and relevant information, obtain your goals and with your help formulate a management plan that fits into your lifestyle. Movement assessment and functional testing will help identify contributing factors and confirm diagnosis. Treatment may involve a combination of modalities including but not limited to manual therapy, education and exercise prescription. All medical records are confidential and informed consent is gained before any assessment and treatment starts.
Below are just some of the issues we can help with:
Back and neck pain
Pelvic floor and continence
