Thorough Spinal Assessment and Treatment Procedures

During your first consultation, which may take up to 50 minutes, every individual will be assessed about a medical history as well as a physical examination.

From this assessment we discuss a treatment plan and goals, with likely outcomes and time frames.

In stiff joints, spinal mobilization techniques are used towards the specific joints and soft tissues to enhance further flexibility.

In case of loose joints and instability, an exercise program will be designed to enhance tissue strengthening, rather than mobilizing techniques.

Soft Tissue Massage

Hands on relaxation techniques are directed to create an increase in the blood flow surrounding pain full or tight tissues.


Refers to the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points for pain relief, healing and general wellbeing.

Sports Injuries, Rehabilitation and Prevention

We will assess your injury or problem and provide a provisional diagnosis and treatment with an expected time frame for recovery.

Rehabilitation and Management - for your individual exercise program specific to your sports injury.

Prevention - by identifying previous injuries that have not healed sufficiently, or how to avoid more injuries.

Postural Analysis and Correction

Postural stress are by far the most often encountered and their importance is generally under estimated towards the cause of joint and soft tissue pain.

A full assessment of the workstation will be necessary to avoid body stresses. Appropriate manual skills exercise and management are part of a treatment program.
