Read about how different Physiotherapy Treatments (Acupuncture, strapping, sports massage, laser therapy, TENS machine therapy) affect your body and its underlying structures.
We manipulate and mobilize soft tissue with a combination of different techniques like trigger point therapy, myofascial release and deep friction to alter movement patterns.
Sports Massage Treatment
After making a diagnosis, needles are inserted at certain points identified by the Physiotherapist. Acupuncture needles stimulate nerve endings and activate an immune response which accelerates the healing of the tissue.
Strapping is used to redirect forces in your body, to relieve pressure or strain off the painful area. Each type of strapping has its own function and acts on the tissue in various ways.
An Ultrasound machine causes vibrations in your body’s cells. These vibrations increase the rate of cellular activity and stimulates small blood vessels to open up.

As Physiotherapists, we use Low Level Laser Therapy. These lasers are called cold lasers because they do not burn. Over 4 000 studies support the effectiveness of lasers for tissue repair.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) involves the application of electrical current to the affected area. This is achieved via a number of electrodes that can be fixed to the skin.
