After identifying the problem we take a staged approach to your recovery. First priority is to get rid of the symptoms such as pain, stiffness, numbness, etc. Then we go further, treating those areas which have caused the original problem to arise. This prevents the problem re-occurring and saves you having to constantly come back when the same thing goes wrong again. Treatment involves a variety of gentle and firm hands-on work. The exact techniques depend on the individual, some people suit some methods and others suit different ones. Your input is always important in deciding how best to treat.
