We specialise in the following types of massage

Sports massage

This special form of massage is typically used before, during or after sporting events. However, sports massage is not just for sports people; it is for anyone who desires a deep tissue massage.

Myofascial release (MFR)

Myofascial Release is often referred to as the missing link in traditional healthcare.

MFR is a very gentle hands on technique that involves light stretching, massage and sustained pressure to release muscle tension and break up scar tissue. This is an excellent option for people with chronic pain, general discomfort, muscle spasms or sensitive pain.

During pregnancy your body goes through anatomical changes. Prenatal massage is designed to specifically to aid these changes. It promotes relaxation, decreases anxiety and relieves tension on muscles. It has also been shown to ease pain in the first stage of labour and make the contractions feel more manageable. It can also reduce labour time and be used as pain relief if required.

Remedial massage

Aimed at anyone who is wanting to relieve tension, decrease pain and remove toxins out of the body.

What is a fascia?

Put shortly, a fascia is a clingfilm-like substance that wraps around all our muscles and organs, offering support and reducing friction during everyday movement.

'Myofascial release' is a set of techniques that aim to give this 'clingfilm' a workout, stretching and smoothing it so your body works at its optimum level.

Acupuncture (dry needling)

Relieving pain, promoting health

Recent medical research supports the efficacy of acupuncture in treating a wide range of painful conditions including:

​Acupuncture does much more than reduce pain. It has been shown to have beneficial effects on immunity, circulation and promoting a general sense of well-being.

 

At The Lady Basset Physiotherapy Centre all of our physiotherapists practising acupuncture are AACP qualified and registered members.

  • Acute or chronic soft tissue injuries

  • Headaches and Migraines

  • Back Pain and Sciatica

  • Tendonitis

  • Muscle spasm

  • Muscle and Joint pain

  • Muscle strains

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow

  • Overuse injuries

  • Whiplash injury & Neck Pain

  • Osteoarthritis

Acupuncture is a very effective modality used by the Physiotherapists at LBPC to help reduce pain, muscle spasm and inflammation, and to accelerate the recovery of injuries to muscles, tendons, fascia, and ligaments. Fine needles stimulate the nerves in skin and muscle and acupuncture is proven to increase the body's release of natural painkillers - endorphins and serotonin.

​Therapeutic ultrasound use sound waves to treat injuries. The main effects of ultrasound are an increase in blood flow in the treated area, a decrease in pain from the reduction of swelling, and the softening of scar tissue from massage of muscle tendons and ligaments.

Ultrasound (Therapeutic)

​Not to be confused with the ultrasound used during pregnancy!

Ultrasound may be used as an additional treatment to manage a number of symptoms including:

  • muscle spasm

  • muscle strains

  • ligament sprains

  • tendonitis

  • bursitis

  • scar tissue

  • trigger points

  • muscle adhesions

During application of Ultrasound Therapy, the physiotherapist will apply a gel to the area that will be treated. The time and power at which Ultrasound is applied is calculated by your physiotherapist based on several factors including the time since injury, the depth of the tissue being treated and the size of the area being treated.

 

The ultrasound machine produces high-frequency sound waves which stimulates blood circulation and cell activity, which in turn accelerates the healing process.

If you have watched any kind of sport over the last few years, you will have no doubt seen athletes with colourful tape on their bodies. This is called 'Kinesiology Taping' and is a technique used by physiotherapists for injury prevention or rehabilitation.

It is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process whilst giving joints and muscles additional stability without restricting the body's range of movement.

The specialist physiotherapists at here at LBPC are fully trained in how to apply effective taping depending on your goals of treatment.

Mobilisations & manipulations

​Most people are aware that chiropractors and osteopaths use treatment techniques that ‘click’ and mobilise the spine or joints. What isn't as widely recognised is Physiotherapists have also been effectively using these techniques for years.

 

The joints in our body may become stiff and painful after injury, an operation or through wear and tear. Once a movement in a joint is reduced a vicious circle of pain and stiffness develops.

Joint mobilisation is a hands-on movement technique applied to a stiff and / or painful joint. The aim is to restore full movement of the joint, reduce pain and relax surrounding tight muscles.

We want you to have a long and lasting recovery

Joint manipulation is used for similar reasons but is a more advanced technique and is often associated with a ‘click’ of the joint. This approach is used to break down scar tissue/adhesions, remove a blockage in a joint and to restore joint movement.

If you would like to know more about mobilisations and manipulations or wish to book yourself in for an assessment please
