AT BROMLEY PHYSIOTHERAPY AND SPORTS INJURY CLINIC WE TAKE A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO EACH INDIVIDUAL PATIENT BY PROVIDING A SELECTION OF COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIES
SPORTS & REMEDIAL MASSAGE
Sports and remedial massage encompass various techniques that are designed to ease pain, re-balance dysfunction and tension within stressed tissue. Sports massage is a beneficial treatment for acute or chronic pain, injury or dysfunction whether it has occurred due to sport, work, postural load or stress.
Massage therapy is an effective way to relieve and correct these common problems. It is not just about treating an injury: it can also look after your physical wellbeing and give the mind some much needed relaxation.
Pilates is a programme using specific exercises and breathing techniques aimed at improving strength, flexibility and overall posture. It targets the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine, strengthening them from “inside out” by gently realigning the body.
Pilates has proven effective not only as a fitness regime, but also as an important part of a rehabilitation programme focusing on quality not quantity of movement.
It offers a unique form of exercise that emphasises precision and control rather than repetition and power. For this reason Pilates is best carried out on a one to one basis.
Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle yet profound healing therapy in which the therapist “listens” with their hands to the subtle rhythms of the body.
Working on the principle that health is always present, the therapist engages with the body’s natural energy fields to assist its own tendency to repair.
Because Craniosacral Therapy is so gentle it is suitable for everyone including the elderly, very young children and more sensitive patients.
Increasingly Chartered Physiotherapists are finding acupuncture an effective compliment to their established skills.
Chartered Physiotherapists are in the unique position of being able to combine acupuncture with other natural treatment methods such as exercise and manual therapy. Acupuncture is often worth considering as an additional treatment for conditions that have not responded well to orthodox treatments.
