Osteopathy is a natural and gentle hands-on therapy that treats the individual as an integrated whole. Its aim is to restore balance and function not only to the joints and to the spine, but also to organs and neurological tissues. These hands-on techniques are performed after years of professional training and clinical practice.
Osteopathy treats many types of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, and is also good for general maintenance of the body. Treatment techniques may involve elements of soft tissue work, joint mobilizations, cranial sacral therapy, muscle energy, and fascial release. All techniques are relaxing and not painful, making the treatment experience safe and enjoyable.

Laser Therapy involves the application of specific wavelengths of laser light to induce a therapeutic effect within the body. The K-Laser has been shown to decrease pain, reduce swelling/inflammation and enhance tissue repair. It does this by increasing microcirculation, allowing more red blood cells with oxygen to reach injured tissues to help with healing. It will also increase venous and lymphatic drainage from the injured region. At the cellular level, it stimulates enzymes which will improve the rate at which energy is made in the cell. More energy in the cell means a quicker healing process.

Custom orthotics correct faulty foot mechanics by normalizing motion and offering shock absorption. Orthotics are mechanical aids that fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been custom-made from precise imprints of your feet.
The most effective orthotics are custom-designed devices specifically crafted to meet the needs of the particular individual. Mechanical dysfunction in our feet has the ability to put undue stress on other parts of the body, predisposing us to wear and tear and injury. Prevention and correction is key! Many people have experienced the benefits of custom orthotics. Let us help you to stay active, mobile, and healthy. If you think custom orthotics may be of benefit to you, book your Advanced Computer Gait and Orthotic Analysis today.
