Our Specialities

dry needling bryanston | kate summer physio

Dry Needling

Dry needling is an effective technique used for the treatment of muscular spasm and myofascial pain in many areas of the body. This is an anatomical approach based on western neurophysiological principles and is not a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Neck and Back Pain

Neck and back pain is commonly experienced and is treated through a neuromusculoskeletal approach. The joints of the spine are looked at in relation to the muscles and neural structures that surround them and addressed as a whole system to resolve pain and dysfunction.

Sports Injuries

Sports Injuries as a result of overuse and/or training are treated through an initial biomechanical assessment to establish the cause of the dysfunction. Followed by hands on treatment of the musculature, joints and soft tissue affected. To ensure effective long-term management this treatment is coupled with specific rehabilitative exercises.

Chest Physiotherapy

Chest physiotherapy is an effective approach to assist with preventing and treating various chest infections. It helps clear the airways of excess secretions associated with pneumonias, bronchitis, COPD, cystic fibrosis and other chronic lung conditions. Through a combination of nebulisation, percussion, vibration, suctioning and breathing exercises it improves the comfort and effectiveness of breathing.

Happy, Healthy Clients

I regret not having met Kate Waterman at an earlier age. Her diagnosis, treatment and education has changed the way I train and how I train my clients. I went to see her for shoulder pain I had had for months and to improve my shoulder range of motion, she quickly pointed out that the two were related and showed me a different approach to improving my range of motion. She educated me on how to properly engage the muscles of the upper back, this technique has helped me have shoulders that are healthier and more mobile than ever!

"My shoulders are healthier and more mobile than ever!"

Kate is such a fantastic physio! She is caring, knowledgeable and always goes the extra mile to ensure I get the most out of our sessions. She is excellent at creating a comfortable, yet professional environment and her treatment and advice has helped me to take my training to the next level. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
