We start with a clinical diagnosis to ensure you get the most appropriate treatment for your particular issue. With years of experience in the health and care profession we have the right mix of skills to get you back to training quicker, or improve a long-term condition.
Sports Remedial Massage
Sports remedial massage is a method of deep tissue massage designed to stimulate your body and foster conditions for a return to normal health and mobility after injury. These techniques also restore functional mobility in patients enduring a range of musculoskeletal disorders. There are many benefits from remedial massage therapy for sports people in our mecca for active people. In the outdoor environments of the Lake District and Eden valley, it’s inevitable that adventures and athletic performance collide with immovable objects or swirling waters and injuries are sustained. A good therapeutic massage supports the normal treatments offered by GPs and hospitals.
This is a sports focused specialism of physiotherapy. Our sports therapist’s focus is on improving mobility and strength to cope with your sporting activities. It isn’t just for athletes. The benefits of sports therapy techniques we use, are improved mobility, relief of chronic pain and injury prevention. It’s a hands-on treatment regime focused on your musculo-skeletal system, that works on its own or alongside your current physiotherapy treatment. Our therapist will help you return to training or normal activities more quickly. This therapy can address: repetitive strain injury (RSI), hamstring injuries, plantar fasciitis, scar tissue, tendinitis and many other day to day conditions too!
Chiropody & Podiatry Service
Our newly recruited chiropodist and podiatrist specialise in helping your feet recover from sports injuries or biomechanical and foot placement problems. We also offer a range of routine foot treatments to help prevent and treat any issues that a non sporting client may be having too. Diagnosis and treatment of common foot problems, with expert advice on prevention, help to ensure that you don’t have foot problems in the future.
Food Intolerance Testing
We also operate a food sensitivity testing service for Cumbria residents. Currently we’re the only intolerance testing service in Cumbria which is affiliated with Lorisian. This is an accredited and trusted food intolerance testing laboratory of more than 35 years industry standing. After determining the type of food intolerance or sensitivity you are experiencing, we work with you to develop an action plan for your food intake.
