Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy
Involves the use of subtle tissue movement and manipulation to facilitate the release of tissue tension which can lead to shifts in alignment and position of joints. This is applied using gentle warming and stretching of the tissues using the therapist’s hands to target problem areas.
Mobilisation of stiff vertebrae in the spine as well as the peripheral joints to improve alignment and posture for the relief of skeletal pain.
Establishment of structured exercise programmes to help the client to maintain changes made during treatment sessions. Physiotherapy can also help advice you on improvements in ergonomic and occupational postures to prevent future injuries.
TAPING IS the technique that is used in a sports medicine and physiotherapy for conditions where we are able to
- reduce the load on the muscle
- protect an injured region
- prevent tissue being damaged further
- ensure that the nerve is not stretched
With proper taping, sports persons even with a Grade 2 level injury can be allowed to play in a competition. Taping is a very important aspect in injury management and rehabilitation that SPARRC uses extensively to treat patients with pain.
