Pioneering Approach: Progressive Physio and Sports Therapy

Progressive Physiotherapy Brighton

Progressive Sports Therapy is a simple way to include all of our treatment techniques and methods under one name. Muscle Activation developed by South African Physiotherapy guru Douglas Heel forms the basis of our treatment. Muscle Activation is a new approach drawing on many treatment influences that is changing the way Sports Therapists, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and other body workers think and treat their clients. Happily for you this simply means you get a better result than simply using conventional Sports Therapy, Physiotherapy or Osteopathy in isolation.

We start with the premise that the whole of your body is connected: so an injury or tension in one area will have repercussions on another. When we interrupt these movement patterns with our treatment the muscles rediscover their optimal length. This means you feel less pain, you feel your muscles become instantly stronger and feel the pressure being taken off all you joints.

If the joints still aren’t moving we can compliment this with our Joint Mobilisation as taught by another Physiotherapy guru, and head of The Society Of Sports Therapists, Professor Graham Smith. This not only gets the joints moving but also helps relax the muscles around the joint. Then finally if the muscles are still not happy and still contributing to your symptoms we can release them off with some good old fashioned Sports Massage.

“Great stuff. These guys understand all the complexities of the body and, for the curious, are great at explaining it too. At some point you’ll probably wonder why is they’re working away from the symptom, but it works. Agree to make a few habitual changes and there’s probably little they can’t fix. You’ll feel better for it overall too. Go see them!” – PV

Muscle Activation works on the specific connections and relationships between muscles, tendons, bones, nerves and connective tissue throughout the body. By pinpointing not just the source of pain but also the cause of pain and injury, our therapists can reactivate the compromised muscles and restore the body to its natural, healthy and energized state, often in only a few minutes.

“My first treatment at Brighton Sports Therapy was a very enjoyable experience, they explained a whole new way of understanding the strains I had been putting on my body through Marathon running, tennis and bad posture. Within 30 mins they were working away and my body started to feel 10 years younger. A completely new and invigorating approach to back and muscle problems that I had battled with over the years. They are extremely good at getting fast results. I would have no hesitation of recommending Brighton Sports Therapy to anyone.” – AB
