Steve specializes in treating soft tissue injury causing pain or dysfunction. These include back pain, neck pain, trapped nerves, repetitive strain injuries, whiplash, ligament problems, tendon problems, sports injuries, headaches, fractures, joint replacements, muscle tears, strains or ligament sprains.
The aim of every treatment is to always get you back to full functional activity as quickly as possible. This maybe daily activities, work related issues or sports related performance. Whatever the reason for you coming to see him, the goal remains the same, to get you back to full fitness as quickly and effectively as possible.
Treatment may involve joint mobilisations, massage, strengthening and rehabilitation or ultrasound therapy. Steve will assess your injury and tailor a specific plan of treatment for each individual.
Sports Therapy is an aspect of healthcare that is specifically concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.
A Sports Therapist is a practitioner who:
- can assess, treat and where appropriate, refer on for specialist advice and intervention.
- can provide sports massage pre and post activity.
- can implement appropriate rehabilitation programmes. - can utilise sports and exercise principles to optimise preparation and injury prevention programmes.
After an operation such as a arthroscopy, replacement or a ligament repair, the post operative rehab process is vital in regaining strength, flexibility, balance and range of motion back to the affected area as quickly as possible. By using soft tissue and joint mobilization, co-ordination and balance activites, stretches and massage, Steve will build a rehab programme designed to get you back to full pain free activity.
