Working in partnership with our patients – achieving an effective outcome

As Clinicians, we engage in professional development on specific skills. Our courses are often focused on injury presentations, making an accurate diagnosis, comprehension of different types of tissues in the body, our reasoning as to how or why an injury has occurred, and our skill in devising an appropriate rehabilitation program. This is done for the key purpose of helping patients to recover from injury and achieve their desired outcomes of sporting, lifestyle, or other goals and aspirations.

What is Fascia?

Never heard of it? It’s an incredibly overlooked structure in our body that plays a key role in holding us together! When our fascial system isn’t functioning as optimally it should, it can manifest as tightness and pain, restricting our movement and making it painful to maintain good posture when we are sitting, standing, walking and running.
