At Military Road Physiotherapy we use a unique combination of manual therapy techniques to treat a variety of soft tissue, nerve and joint dysfunctions. Research has shown that these techniques help reduce pain and restore normal joint function. When combined with the appropriate exercise therapy the result is pain free movement and decreased likelihood of re-aggravation or injury.
Some of the manual therapy techniques used are:

  • Myofascial release
  • Massage therapy
  • Muscle energy techniques
  • Dry needling
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Visceral Manipulation
  • Craniosacral therapy

Please note that traditional osteopathic techniques such as Visceral Manipulation and Craniosacral therapy are used in a modern scientific model. Further research into their efficacy is currently under way.

Clinical Pilates is an emerging specialisation within the Physiotherapy profession. A Clinical Pilates practitioner is able to adapt exercises developed in traditional Pilates and apply them to a client’s specific injury and dysfunction. Resulting in decreased pain and increased range of movement and strength.

Recent research has shown that pain and dysfunction and poor posture has an inhibitory effect on the stabilizing muscles throughout your body. The theory of clinical Pilates is that through a range of carefully controlled movement patterns and exercises, focusing on posture and breathing, we can train your inner stabilizing muscles to do what they are designed to do. That is stabilize your pelvis, spine, rib cage and shoulder girdle.

To execute the exercises properly a stable, controlled pelvic and shoulder girdle is crucial with the load being used to both facilitate and /or challenge both deep and global stability musculature. Then because of the high degree of repetition of these consciously controlled movement patterns, your body gradually changes from conscious control to subconscious as the complexity of the movement challenges are increased.

The science behind Clinical Pilates sounds complex, but once you have learned to control your movements on the Pilates equipment you start to discover a new you and from that point on your posture, control, strength and movement patterns begin to change.
