You will know that physiotherapy helps in the diagnosis, management and treatment of musculoskeletal symptoms and injuries, pain, stiffness and weakness. It can also help with injury prevention and rehabilitation. At Leap Back Physio, we intend to have our patients achieve their highest level of optimum physical activity and quality of life.
Our physiotherapists provide a comprehensive assessment and design a customized treatment plan for you, which take into account your current capacity, lifestyle, limitations and medical history and the life that you want to live from here onwards. Our typical approach to treatment:
- A detailed diagnosis
- A cohesive plan of action and treatment
- Physiotherapy sessions
- Home care
While treating patients, they use different types of pressure techniques alongwith acupuncture, to relieve muscle spasm and joint stiffness and to strengthen muscles. They also employ certain exercises and soft tissue massage techniques to relax tight muscles, and different types of taping can be used to alleviate pain. At Leap Back, we also do a postural assessment tailored to your work, home or sporting activity, and guide on ways to improve posture and prevent injuries and chronic pain as a result of bad postures. We recommend a custom palette of strengthening exercises that can be used to correct any muscle imbalances. Physiotherapy plays a key role in healing and rehabilitation, by stimulating the body’s natural healing process without heavy medication.
