WHEN YOU'VE HAD PAIN TOO LONG
QUICK FIXES HAVE ONLY GIVEN YOU SHORT TERM RESULTS
You are at the stage where you don't know what to do?
You have probably tried hands on treatment before but nothing seems to offer sustainable management of your problem. You fear that you will have to live with this and that you will become debilitated by it as you get older.
YOU HAVE MOVEMENT
You feel stiff, tight and a lack of strength in your body. It is stopping you from doing the physical and social activities that you love.
IT'S A DRAIN & STRAIN ON YOUR LIFE
Your pain comes at a cost on your life. Not only is it effecting your health, but it has an effect on your family life, your work life, your earning capacity and your mental well-being.
"I believe that your body is a pillar of strength. I help you to fix the cracks, rebuild strength and resilience, so that you love your life again."
Leona Mirtschin, Accredited Exercise Physiologist & Certified Pilates Instructor
YOUR BODY NEEDS ANSWERS
IT'S MORE THAN LOOKING AT ONE PIECE OF THE PUZZLE
Ineffective treatment and quick fixes ignore the whole body. Traditional treatment tends to look at the isolated region of your pain or one piece of the puzzle.
But it's more than that.
The body is a kinetic chain and is only as strong as it's weakest link. The weak link can be in another region of your body that is independent of your painful area. We find these complicating factors.
IT'S ABOUT YOUR
INCLUDING YOUR MIND & YOUR BRAIN
To try and figure out what is going on, you need to start from a whole body functional approach first, rather than going directly to your site of pain.
I look at how your body moves through functional movement patterns.
You can have the same medical diagnosis as another person, but you will move differently around that diagnosis. Due to your thoughts, your beliefs, your behaviours & your expectations.
A FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT ASSESSMENT PROVIDES A ROAD MAP
A functional movement assessment identifies any weak links affecting your overall function. It provides a road map that uncovers impairments in one part of your body that maybe contributing to your painful region.
It will drill down to the root cause of your problem and give you a more accurate diagnosis so that your get the right treatment.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I was referred by my GP. I had a 6 yr old shoulder/collarbone injury that had stopped me from doing anything with my left arm that involved carrying weight. I had joint and nerve pain from the my clavicle down to my fingers - something that I thought that I would have to live with for the rest of my life...which was depressing for an active person! .
I had been to a number of physiotherapists and a sports medicine doctor - none of which helped - so I was sceptical but I trusted my GP enough to give you a go.
I appreciated your honesty from the outset - I knew you wouldn't string me along if you didn't think you were being effective.
My collarbone/shoulder has full movement without pain. I couldn't sleep on my left side without waking myself up - I now sleep peacefully on my left side. I couldn't carry the groceries inside or lift anything weighty without getting pain or discomfort in my shoulder/collarbone - I now have normal movement with no pain/discomfort.
I thought I would have to live with shoulder & nerve pain
