Marika uses a variety of manual therapy techniques which are non-invasive but hands-on and effective.  These techniques focus on balancing and improving the balance of the musculoskeletal system and include muscle-energy techniques, trigger point therapy, counterstrain, spinal mobilisation and manipulation, the McKenzie method and manual traction.  Physiotherapists are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine, often before the patient is even aware they exist.

Joint and soft tissue mobilisation techniques are other forms of manual therapy that are used to manage injuries. When joints and other soft tissue become painful due to trauma, overuse or disuse, they can become dysfunctional and unable to perform the movements they were designed for.  Soft tissue and joint mobilisation are very useful in these conditions.

Soft tissue mobilitations also referred to as therapeutic or remedial massage and has been designed to relax a patient’s muscles and reduce swelling in certain areas.  It is a very effective treatment for relieving pain associated with sporting or musculoskeletal injuries.  Joint mobilisation is a technique used by physiotherapists to restore full range motion and limit pain. Joint mobilisation is helpful in cases where pain and joint tightness limit motion such as frozen shoulder. Joint mobilisation treatment varies depending on the condition and client being treated but will generally include gentle joint mobilisations with or without joint manipulation.

What is Wellness Physiotherapy?

More often than not, when we tell someone that we are a physiotherapy clinic, they immediately associate our vocation with neck and/or back pain. What many do not realise, however, is that physiotherapy is a health care modality that provides significantly more than just a solution for pain.

Physiotherapy  is a lifestyle that involves all aspects of wellness, including exercise, nutrition, personal development, stress relief and self-care. We have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life (including children, adolescents, adults and the elderly) with outcomes that speak for themselves.
