Most people aren’t aware of what exactly physiotherapy is and how it can directly benefit them. In the simplest definition, physiotherapy promotes optimal mobility, overall , and helps prevent injury.

Myofascial release is a soft tissue treatment for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Myofascial release aims to relax contracted tight muscles, improve blood and lymphatic circulation and stimulate the stretch reflex in muscles. Fascia is a thin tough connective tissue that wraps around most structures within the body including the muscles. Myofascial release can be successfully used to help relax contracted muscles by stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles. Through physiotherapy we can:
- Treat musculoskeletal conditions
- Rehabilitate an individual after an accident, illness or age related disease
- Help return mobility when it has been lost
- Myofascial release treatment
- Chronic Pain Treatment
There is no age limit to physiotherapy. You’re never too young to better yourself with physical activity, and are never too old to make improvements to your mobility. We provide our clients with the education and maintenance techniques to prevent muscle decline and avoid injuring the same area again.
