Functional Movement Screening and physiotherapy Profiling

Physiotherapy profiling utilises a functional screening approach to analyse performance during selected activities.

The analysis is then used to identify any limitations or weaknesses that could place the individual at risk of injury or limited performance (O’Connor et al 2011).

Following the analysis and assessment of the findings , an individualised program of exercise and stretching will be formulated to help assist in reducing any weakness and thus reducing the chance of injuries (Meir et al 2007).

Pilates

Pilates is an exercise method that begins movements from a central core and is designed to promote core stability, flexibility, muscular endurance, postural and body awareness and correct muscle imbalances.

Exercises can also be tailored to your specific sport. As each sport and injury places different demands on your body, the therapist will work closely with you to identify your needs and provide the exercises you specifically require to meet, and exceed these challenges.

The therapist providing pilates instruction is trained and qualified to provide suitable exercises.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a therapy used to ease muscular pain and tightness. The trigger point (palpable source of pain) in the muscle belly is targeted and released using a very thin needle that is threaded into the site of pain. Differing to acupuncture this technique utilises one needle at a time and is effectively used for both chronic and acute muscular relaxation.

Therapists providing this treatment are fully trained in the technique.
