IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation)
IASTM is another way to resolve pain and tightness in the muscles. IASTM magnifies abnormalities in the soft tissue which makes it easier to locate and identify damaged areas in your muscles. It helps to reduce scar tissue and myofascial adhesions.
Injury diagnosis will provide you with detailed information of your current injury, as well as the best treatment and advice for you. Before your appointment, there will be a telephone call to discuss your problem. If you are just wanting a sports massage with no specific injury, then I will provide you with knowledge of the muscular system to help you learn more about how the body and muscles work.
It is extremely important when rehabilitating injuries to do it correctly and specific to your needs. Connective Sports Therapy can provide bespoke rehabilitation plans, with video links and pdf files for the exercises which will be provided. This will be discussed and put in place for the initial consultation.
Posture and movement analysis
On your initial consultation a full postural assessment and gait analysis will be performed to check if there are any areas that could be improved to help reduce and prevent injuries. I will also look into the biomechanics of each individual and check that it is all functioning correctly. This will give you the best results and will be bespoke for your needs.
Online Zoom Consultations
With the COVID19 crisis, this is a great way to avoid contact and a swift diagnosis. I will be able to provide exercise-based rehabilitation to do at home and give you tips on the best techniques to keep the pain at bay. Online consultations will be beneficial for you if you are unable to get out or are feeling under the weather.
Full Body MOTs
Full body MOTs are just as important as getting your car MOTed. This is a great way to really understand the biomechanics of your body. We will provide a plan to get you back to being fully functional and help get rid of all those aches and pains. We will work together a discuss your problem areas and provide the best suitable treatments and sustainable plans for you.
