This is a focused, outcome-based treatment, aiming to reduce your level of pain and increase your range of movement. All treatments, and each session, are tailored to the individual and their requirements on that day.

Conditions that can benefit from a clinical treatment include; back pain, ‘frozen shoulder’, migraines, neck & TMJ pain, unexplained knee pain, ‘sciatica’, RSIs.

Advising patients on self-care techniques and lifestyle changes/compromises, are an important part of a Clinical Treatment and play an integral part of the healing process.
Rehab exercises, stretches, advice on any current exercise programmes, positions to sleep in and improvements to your work station can all be looked at.
In a Clinical treatment, we will aim to work out why the issue is there and how we can manage it in the future. We may need to consider your postural habits, current stresses that you may be experiencing – both physical and psychological, sleep habits and any previous ill-health or injuries.
Ideally, if treating a pain condition, I like to see a patient once per week for 2 or 3 weeks. We then reassess progress and, if the issue is progressing as I expect, we move to 1 session per fortnight, then 1 session per month etc.
This is a very basic guide. Some people will only need a couple of treatments to see a significant reduction in pain levels that they are happy with. Others will take longer.
It all depends on how long the issue has been there, how used to treatment the client is and, crucially, how much responsibility the client is willing and/or able to take on, to improve their condition.
