The clinic is designed for people with chronic pain, reoccurring injury or recovering from an injury (but can also be used for prehab or performance improvement).
Our initial consultation lasts for 90-120 minutes. This allows us to complete a very detailed assessment ensuring we can find the root cause of your problems, as well as providing treatment.
The assessment includes:
- Full injury history dating back to birth
- Postural Assessment
- Gait analysis/ movement pattern assessment (Anatomy in Motion - AiM)
- Joint Mobility (Functional Range Conditioning - FRC)
With this information we will provide treatment to rectify these issues, using a combination of corrective exercises and soft tissue therapy. We will also provide you with a corrective/rehabilitation plan.
Sports massage is a form of massage that involves the manipulation of soft tissue such as muscles and fascia. It is a highly effective way of reducing muscle tightness and soreness, whether caused by training for a sport, injury or stresses of everyday life i.e. sitting over a laptop or phone.
Anatomy in Motion (AiM)
AiM focuses on looking at an individual’s injury history (this includes traumas and surgeries) and assessing each joint’s movement. With this information, it then looks at re-teaching the body to move better and thereby getting over-worked joints and tissues to relax, and joints and tissues that weren’t working properly to start working harder/better. Thereby giving the body more, and usually better, options to move. This in turn, allows the body to recover/remove pain and perform at a higher level.

Functional Range Conditioning (FRC)
FRC is a comprehensive mobility training system based on scientific research. The main goals of FRC are to simultaneously improve mobility, strength and body control. This is what makes it a brilliant tool for rehab and prehab, as well as improving performance.
