A skilled, hands-on approach to treatment is always provided to release or mobilise joints, soft tissue and neural tissue.
Strapping or kinesio-taping may be applied to support muscles or joint through the course of treatment.
This is used as an adjunct to manual therapy to release myofascial trigger points.
Simple, compliance friendly exercises, stretches and neurodynamic mobilisation techniques are introduced to facilitate the recovery process. Tight or toned tissues have to be released and weak structures must be strengthened. Stability training is introduced where poor joint or movement control is found.
Biomechanics refers to the mechanics of movement in biological systems and is concerned with structure and function relationships within the body. Biomechanical correction is a combination of the above techniques with the purpose of returning the body to its most ideal alignment where joints and soft tissue can function optimally and efficiently. Biomechanical correction will ultimately ensure that the initial problem or dysfunction does not persist or recur.
Education and demonstration of correct workstation or study-station set up and correction of sitting posture forms a routine part of physiotherapy treatment.
