Injury Therapy


 

What is it?

 

Anyone who has had a long term injury, posture dysfunction or some kind of chronic pain, knows that it is very difficult to find a health professional that can offer a long term solution.

A Confused System?

 

I have been treated by, certified by and trained with a variety of practitioners who are all experienced in their own field and the best ones know that they don't have all the answers and agree that the science is still very grey.

And which one do you choose? Osteopaths, Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Sports Therapists, Personal Trainers, Sports Masseurs?

 

The world of physical therapy is broken and confused and no one can agree on which is the correct approach, not even within each profession!

An Injury Therapist

 

To call yourself an Injury Therapist you need to be 'Multi-Skilled' and have a broad understanding of both the human body and the various methods used across the professions. This is what I have tried to do and although I would not claim to be an expert in any one field, I have learned a few truths...

  1. There is no one way, every condition calls for a different approach.
  2. There is no easy fix, there is always a hard path to follow of consistency, optimism and grit.
  3. Corrective exercise and movement are the key to long term results.
  4. Chasing 'Function not Pain' is a far more productive path to follow.
  5. The body and the mind cannot be separated, each affects the other.
