Physical Injuries

By combining Chinese Medicine techniques with my previous background as a sports injury therapist, I treat many different muscle/tendon/ligament injuries. These injuries can range from shoulder tension as a result of poor posture, to acute injuries from high-intensity sport.

Below is a list of some of the common injuries that I see regularly. This is by no means an extensive list of the injuries or ailments that I treat, it is merely an overview.

Muscle strains            Sciatica

Osteoarthritis              Neck / shoulder pain

Lower back pain         Golfer / tennis elbow

If you are unsure of what kind of injury you may have, if you are in pain and don’t know what to do, feel free to get in touch to discuss your particular issue, and what options are available to you.

Techniques Used

Throughout the treatment, a range of techniques will be used. These may include :

  • TCM techniques such as Acupuncture, Tuina, moxibustion & cupping – To treat stagnation, alleviate pain and encourage healing
  • Massage – To increase circulation and relax muscle fibres
  • Infrared heat – to encourage blood flow and promote healing
  • Neuromuscular technique – To eliminate muscle spasm & reduce pain
  • Muscle Energy Technique – To increase flexibility

Frequently Asked Questions about Physical Injury Treatments

What type of injuries do you treat?
I treat soft tissue injuries (muscles, ligaments, tendons) such as strains, sprains and muscles tension. I do not treat skeletal problems or use joint manipulation.

If you are unsure what type of injury you have, we can discuss that over the phone. If you come to my clinic with an injury that I deem to be skeletal, following an assessment, I will you refer you for an appropriate treatment at no cost.

Is there anybody that you don’t treat?
All treatments are available to both male and female. If any clothes need to be removed I will leave the room and towels will be available to cover the client.

What if I have an existing medical condition or if I am pregnant ?
If you have a medical condition or are pregnant, please let me know when booking your appointment, as sometimes treatments need to be tailored slightly, to accommodate the condition.

Do you treat children?
I’m not specialised in working with babies or small children, so my treatments are probably most suitable to those over 12 years old.

Please Note: When treating Under 18’s and vulnerable adults, a parent or guardian must be present.
