Our physiotherapists provide a comprehensive assessment and design a customized treatment plan for you, which keep in mind your current capacity, lifestyle, limitations and medical history and the life that you want to live from here onwards.
During treatment, they use various hands on pressure techniques along with acupuncture, to relieve muscle spasm and joint stiffness and to strengthen muscles. We also suggest exercises and employ soft tissue massage to relax tight muscles, and different types of taping 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.
