Welcome to the blog!

As an extension of our commitment to excellence in offering clients the best and latest treatments; the News & Advice blog is intended to keep our clients informed on advances in treatments, techniques and technology that might help them.

By providing, news, tips and advice we aim to help clients with their conditions. We believe this enables our clients to investigate, read-up on and understand their conditions and some of the options open to them in dealing with them. The News & Advice posts are designed to help clients benefit from making relatively informed decisions on how to manage their conditions and what type of treatment they might prefer when they visit us. As always there are always advances and opinions in our field, but by keeping in-touch with new developments, and offering the latest treatments and techniques we hope to help our clients deal with their conditions in the best way possible.

Some of the most recent additions to the treatments we offer include Kinesio Taping and Radial Shockwave Therapy and we are one of a limited amount of practices that offer IMS ( Intramuscular Stimulation). You can read more about the treatments we offer here.
