Sports therapy is the assessment and treatment of Musculo-skeletal issues/injuries through the correction of mobility and functional movement.
At S.P.I.N. Health & Fitness our highly skilled and qualified Sports Therapists can assess and treat your everyday niggles, as well as postural issues and sporting injuries. We understand that every individual is different, and this calls for thorough assessment, and individualised treatment plans, tailored to our clients needs. Our treatments involve thorough hands on treatment, which may include deep tissue therapy, trigger point therapy, cupping, dry needling and/or muscle energy techniques.
The use of cupping is generally used for those clients who have a lot of fascial tightness, which is tightness in the layer of tissue between the skin and muscle. Tightness in the fascia can lead to decreased range of motion and mobility. “Dynamic cupping” can assist in decreasing stagnated blood, which helps to increase blood flow and nutrients to the muscles, which can be very beneficial after an injury involving haematoma (bruising).
The use of dry needling may be required if there are deep trigger points needing to be released that soft & deep tissue therapy cannot correct effectively or efficiently. The needles are very thin and bind to the muscle tissue, helping the areas of deep density to release.
Through the use of quality assessment, hands on treatment and home exercise programs, we pride ourselves on getting everyone back to doing what they love in the quickest time possible.
