Exercise & Movement Therapy
Simple online booking >>
"Every day I meet people that have decided to limit their movement options due to pain. Maybe they've been told not to bend their backs to pick things up, or they worry about rolling their ankles on a country walk.
Whatever the reason might be, it is almost always possible to overcome this avoidance and strengthen past the pain with a tailored and intelligent exercise programme.
Can Exercise & Movement Therapy Help Me?
What is Exercise & Movement Therapy?
The Aim of Exercise Therapy is to restore your confidence in movement again. The evidence is overwhelming that movement and exercise is more effective than any other individual therapy. This is because you actively learn how to move with more ease and confidence, strengthening up the resilience in your tissues. This is what you'll get:
- Detailed assessment of your movement
- Bespoke exercises that challenge you but are achievable
- Progressive exposure to exercise
- Detailed management of your pain
- Home exercise plans to help you progress
Is this right for me?
Many people ask this question. If you're failing to progress, or have had enough of the expense of being managed with regular therapies, like Chiropractic, Osteopathy or massage, then this is definitely for you. These therapies often fail because they are passive. You are relying on being "treated", as if you have no control over your pain outcome. This simply isn't the truth when it comes to most pain. If you take active control you'll learn how you can overcome any pain by yourself, without spending thousands on therapy.
Our aim is to teach you how to feel safe in your body again and get you moving towards your goals.
