Pilates is a form of mind-body exercise that incorporates strength, mobility and stretching. It focusses on a central core of stability in the lumbo-pelvic region.
Acupuncture involves using thin needles inserted into muscle and fascia trigger points. This is great at relieving muscle tension, reducing muscular pain receptors and stimulating cortisol release (powerful anti inflammatory).
Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Hyaluronic acid has been used in medicine for over 10 years to help relieve pain and reduce the progression of osteoarthritis.
Diagnostic Ultrasound Scans
Ultrasound imaging, as used in pregnancy scans, is a brilliant way to assess the condition of muscles, tendons and joints. The advantage of ultrasound is that it is very safe (no radiation), quick and accurate at diagnosing many injuries.
PRP treatment involves the ultrasound-guided injection of platelets directly into the site of injury, to trigger the body’s healing mechanisms.
Shockwave therapy uses high-powered sound waves to trick cells into learning to repair themselves. Shockwaves have been shown to stimulate bone and tendon healing, reduce inflammation and desensitise nerves.
Corticosteroid injections are used to treat chronic inflammation within a joint or around a tendon. They are excellent for relieving tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, frozen shoulders and calcific tendonitis. Also known as steroid or cortisone injections.
Ultrasound Guided Injection Therapy
Please note that ALL of our injections are Ultrasound guided. Research has shown significantly better outcomes when using guided versus unguided injections simply because you can be sure to target the specific injury.
