WHAT WE TREAT
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 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.
Headache & Sinusitis
Headaches originating from the upper neck and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) are effectively treated through manual therapy techniques. Sinus treatment includes dry needling in conjunction with ultrasound to improve sinus drainage and headache symptoms.
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.
Although not commonly discussed or known, physiotherapy can assist in the management of a number of woman’s health conditions related to pelvic floor dysfunction. These include bladder conditions such as urinary incontinence and overactive bladders as well as pelvic organ prolapses. Woman’s health physiotherapy is aimed at helping woman through a number of treatment techniques such as retraining of the pelvic floor.
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!Reghardt Prinsloo
