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.
